The Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY, founded in 2006, has become nationally recognized for its innovative programs. The only public graduate journalism school in the northeastern U.S., it prepares students from diverse economic, racial, and cultural backgrounds to produce high-quality journalism.

The principal role of the Associate Director for Career Programs is to empower students with life-long career management skills and enable them to make successful transitions from graduate school to professional life in for-profit and not-for­-profit settings via self assessment, research into career options and opportunities for experiential learning. The Associate Director provides innovative and high quality career development programming that supports the ongoing career choice process, job search skills building, and the overall leadership and professional development of graduate students to prepare them for career success.
