Join the Emerald Media Group

At Emerald Media Group we are anything but ordinary. We look  for a very specific personality and skill set in the students we hire and train to be industry-leading professionals.

At the Emerald, nothing is ever good enough. We’re creators, innovators, entrepreneurs and our own worst critic. Every facet of our organization is constantly being reinvented and challenges the conventional. We identify quickly what doesn’t work, and focus on finding out what does. We do things differently in an effort to “make college better.” Better for the people that work for us as well as those who interact with us.

Failure motivates us. Problem solving energizes us. Experimentation fascinates us. Success drives us. When we’ve created something great, we move on and strive to create something better.

We are looking for students that have a passion for the practice of modern media, communication and an agency philosophy. We want someone interested in helping us improve our digital reach, set industry best practices and continue to build revenue off of existing and unexplored alternative sources.

If you have a devotion to digital innovation and excellence, a strong work ethic, thrive in a fast paced environment and are as passionate about helping change the lives of the Emerald staff as we are about changing the lives of those around us, we want you.

The Emerald Media Group is recruiting passionate and engaging students to become part of our business team. We are looking for highly motivated students that would like to gain real-world professional experience in business media operations. The EMG business office works with clients from University of Oregon, the local community, and with national agencies to develop advertising and marketing campaigns that help deliver messaging and information to the students at the University of Oregon.
