Welcome to the Mayborn School of Journalism Career Community!

Message from the Dean: Did you know that the number of communication jobs is expected to grow at a faster rate than the overall economy in the future? That means you have made a great career choice to be a part of this information-seeking, skilled writing and technologically-savvy group of industries the Mayborn School serves. Remember, we require at least one professional internship as part of your degree. Therefore, the Career Center can help connect you to internships and jobs whether your concentration is Advertising, Broadcasting, Print & Digital Journalism, Photojournalism or Public Relations.
