A two-year program for recent graduates and entry-level professionals interested in a career in media and technology.
The NBCU Academy Embed Program is a 24-month assignment where participants are embedded full time in a business unit enabling them to learn, build their skills, and gain hands-on professional experience. Embeds are matched to roles that align with their strengths and future goals, including positions in newsrooms, marketing, production, technology and more.
The Embed Program builds on the NBCU Academy mission of providing more equitable access to diverse and marginalized communities that have been historically underrepresented in the media and technology industries. The program also provides professional development and networking opportunities with NBCU talent, leaders and executives.
Program requirements include:
Recent graduation from an NBCU Academy partner institution or other journalism, communications, engineering and/or media technology program
Affiliation with a journalism diversity organization as an entry-level professional. Diversity organizations include but are not limited to NABJ, NAHJ, AAJA, NAJA, and NLGJA.
Applicants must provide references and a letter of interest.
Applications will open in Spring 2023.

“You do get a lot of impostor syndrome, a lot of self-doubts. Build a network of not just friends and professors, but people who are going to support you.”
NBCU Academy embeds reflect on AAJA and NABJ/NAHJ, the biggest in-person networking events of their careers.
