Internships and Careers

Hit the ground running Internships and Careers

Employers like to hire CoJMC grads because they know you can hit the ground running. Everything you learn in your classes prepares you for that, and an internship or two takes you to a way higher level. We help you learn how to polish up your resume and cover letter, how to create an impressive portfolio of your work and how to get in touch with potential employers.

Every week, you’ll get an email telling you about job and internship openings. Faculty will often nudge you toward a particular opportunity. And each fall you can attend an intern night and get even more advice. Current jobs and internships are also posted through Handshake, LinkedIn, and the CoJMC Newsletter.
