For most journalism students, the biggest step toward finding employment isn’t passing the final. It isn’t acing midterms, turning in homework or even meeting deadlines at the college paper.
The most critical period in journalism school is the three-month window stretching from September to November informally known as internship application season. Getting professional experience and making contacts through an internship can mean the difference between landing a job or being unemployed after commencement.
