Annenberg Media Leadership Fall 2021 Application
Apply to be a part of the next amazing crop of leaders at Annenberg Media!
Students and incoming students from all majors, backgrounds and experience levels are encouraged to apply. This application is the first step in a multi-step process. After your application form has been reviewed you will get an email with instructions for signing up for a test that will evaluate your news judgment, writing and editing skills.
The hiring process will likely stretch out over the summer as the newsroom evaluates its needs. Final decisions will be made in August and we'll keep you updated so please keep an eye on your email.
We'll ask for more specificity in your schedule during a later step in the process.
Faculty members will review test results with applicants, then work with current student leaders to interview candidates for lead roles. Selected candidates will be given a formal offer letter and detailed job description.
