Internship Opportunities

Students at the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute study their craft in the media capital of the world and have access to internships at top news organizations. Career Services emails students and posts new opportunities on our extensive job boards daily, and our counselors work to match students with the best opportunities available.




NYU Journalism students receive exclusive access to a host of networking events where they meet and mingle with leading industry professionals—including many NYU Journalism alumni now working in the field. During the 2020–2021 academic year, in response to the COVID-19 crisis, events have moved online and include recruiter information sessions available via Zoom.

Having the opportunity to intern during the normal semester is what helped me more than anything else in my career. Because I was in the heart of New York City, there are so many places to intern during the spring, the fall or the summer semesters. NYU career services helped me find internships that were a good fit. Take advantage of NYU career services! Sylvan and Craigh are really helpful.

Career Services in graduate school is just as important as the classes you take. NYU has stellar Career Services that continuously provide internship opportunities during school, job opportunities near graduation and they're always available for advice and consultation when making job decisions.

MA Class of 2014, Washington Correspondent at Spectrum News

I really appreciate NYU's journalism career fairs and opportunities to meet and network with real hiring managers in the industry. I made my first connection with an Associated Press hiring manager at an NYU journalism career fair and it helped me to get a better sense of what the organization was looking for, and helped me later on land a job with the Associated Press.

BA 2017, Journalist, Disability reporting fellow for the New York Times

I picked NYU Journalism because of the access being in the city and the program provided. It gave me access to resources to jump start my career. I was able to connect with mentors through the NYU meet and greets. Those mentors worked at the major networks in the city which led to internships while I was at school and a continued genuine bond.
