Career Services

The Career Services Office in the School of Journalism & Mass Communications is here to serve Letters & Science undergraduate and professional graduate students interested in the field of media, information and communications as a career path.

Whether you are searching for an internship, job and/or resources, this office can help you plan your path to your future.  Start early, as the earlier you start, the more successful you will be with the process.

Getting a degree from UW-Madison is only one part of the employment puzzle.  Statistically, students who complete one or more internships during the course of their college career are more likely to find employment in their chosen field after graduation. We encourage students to seek internships early and often, as your hands-on job knowledge and information will be useful when determining next steps.

See where our students interned over the Summer of 2015.

The good news is that all of your hard work as an intern will pay off when you hit the job market and look for your first “real” job post-graduation. Our students do extremely well on the job market, and most—who are not going on to graduate school or other opportunities—find employment in their chosen area within six months of graduation.

See where our May 2015 graduates are today (this survey was sent to students in June/July – some students are still seeking employment).

We offer a wide range of services for our current and graduating students, but if you’ve already graduated, don’t despair! We’re always happy to talk to alums about their job searches, resumes, and other career-related needs.
