Recruiter visits

Connect directly with recruiters from top media organizations. Explore upcoming recruiter visits.

The Cronkite Career and Professional Development team hosts recruiters throughout the school year. During the fall and spring semesters, recruiters from major news organizations will interview with soon-to-be graduates for open positions in a variety of markets. Students are encouraged to sign up for multiple recruiter visits.

Why should I meet with a recruiter?

Meeting with a recruiter can help you get your foot in the door. Large media companies, like NBC, CBS, Scripps, Gray TV and TEGNA, rely on their recruiters to find top-notch talent to fill open positions. Some companies, like NBC, CBS and Scripps have fellowship and career programs designed to help new grads enter the job market. Working with a recruiter directly could give you a leg up when applying for post-grad programs or your first job.

McClatchy Company

Deadline: Wednesday, March 15, 2023

Wage: Paid

Instructions:

It all started on February 3, 1857, when James McClatchy helped launch the company’s first newspaper in the wake of the California Gold Rush. While other papers of the time came and went, The Daily Bee—later renamed The Sacramento Bee—persevered through an independent approach to journalism and a commitment to quality. The Bee family expanded with the founding of The Fresno Bee in 1922 and the purchase of The Modesto Bee in 1927.

What followed was more than a century of growth, fueled by the acquisition of quality media companies in growing markets across the country, including the 2006 purchase of Knight Ridder, which made McClatchy, at that time, the second largest newspaper publisher in the United States. In 2020, McClatchy transitioned to private ownership under Chatham Asset Management. Along the way, the work of journalists from our media companies has been honored with many awards, including more than 50 Pulitzer Prizes.

Today, McClatchy operates a leading local media company in 30 U.S. markets, connecting with our communities through print, digital, mobile apps, and more
