During the break between the academic semesters and/or toward the end of the academic year, 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.
IIJNM has a very active placement program which prepares the student to apply and interview for the first career job in journalism. Several media organizations visit the campus from January during the second semester. Students are guided in applying to many media houses of their choice throughout the country.
