Two journalists on a street

Now that you’ve completed your classroom education and built up a solid list of clips, it’s time to use it to land a job, internship, or promotion. Whatever your goals, you’ll work with an experienced mentor to learn the real-world skills of pitching, freelancing, applying, paying taxes–the kinds of things that can trip up a reporter of all experience levels. But don’t stress–we’ll focus a whole course on helping you reach your next career goal.
