According to figures for last month from Columbia University’s Graduate School of journalism, 197 or 64 per cent of graduates already had journalism jobs (or equivalent internships/further study plans) lined up.
The stat is better than the situation this time last year for the school’s graduates and is backed up by similarly positive figures for the most recent crop of City University of New York graduates, the report states.
Journalism students and tutors – what’s the picture where you are? Are you seeing new areas of employment open up?
Speaking to a recent journalism graduate at a leading school in the UK, Journalism.co.uk was told that only 3 from a year of 75 had received job offers – two of which were in PR.
