IIJNM maintains close contacts and professional relationships with a large number of news organizations, academic institutions and corporations. We maintain active partnerships with several journalism-related organizations in India and abroad.
The journalism community in India recognizes the quality of our program and the calibre of our students.Our graduates are now working in CNN, CNN-IBN, CNBC, Times Now, Rediff, Google, Reuters, Press Association-UK, major newspapers like Times of India, Indian Express and Economic Times, and many other leading media houses.
Internship and Placement
During the break between the academic semesters, students get the opportunity for 2 weeks to 2 months internship in their respective fields at news organizations. The faculty assists in arranging these internships based on the needs of the media organization, which give students first-hand experience of working in a media operation. Most interns receive job offers at these media organizations upon graduation.
IIJNM has a very active placement program which prepares the student to apply and interview for the first career job in journalism. Several major media organizations visit the campus from January during the second semester. Students are guided in applying to several media organizations of their choice throughout the country. In the recent past years, most graduating students had received good starting job offers, some more than one, during the campus placement week itself; practically all received well-paying job offers by the end of the academic year.
Schedule and Contact Details
The next “campus placement week” is scheduled for the week of March 20, 2018.
The Career Placement week is a culmination of a gruelling year spent reporting, writing and shooting events, giving headlines, talking anchor leads, and a host of other duties that make our students shine among aspiring journalists.
Typically hosted by us during the second half of March and the first week of April, the Career Placement Week sees the top media houses coming to select our students. Last year over 70% of our students received offers within this week.
