SSMS strives for a 100% job placement of the students.  The institute is well networked within the industry and maintains excellent relationships with a large number of media companies & professionals. The faculty being current senior working professionals from the industry is also a significant leverage for placements.  SSCMS helps students get internships in the top media houses during the course. A large number of these students get job offers from the same companies who would have seen them perform during the internship. SSCMS alumni also play a key role helping students secure jobs in the industry.

Placements at SSCMS are handled by the placement office with advice and guidance from the faculty. The placement process at SSCMS tries to ensure an ideal fit between the students and the companies and help them both make informed choices. The placement office maintains close contacts with the recruitment divisions of the various media houses. This contact and communication is a continuing process and closer to the fourth term the resumes of students are send by SSCMS directly to the companies. The companies are then invited for interviews which happen on and off campus.

SSCMS alumni currently work in prestigious news organisations around the world, including the Los Angeles Times, The Times of India, CNN-IBN,  Deccan Herald, Times of India Kannada, DNA, The Hindu, The Hindustan Times, The New Indian Express, Doordarshan, NDTV, Aaj Tak and Kairali TV.

"....I believe, that it was at SSCMS that I developed the skill and the confidence that made me stand out in every organization that I worked in. SSCMS, my alma mater in journalism, was where I learnt the nuances of the field. A great faculty, sound infrastructure and a course that helps give students actual hands on experience, is what gives them an edge over other students when they enter the job market. And what makes SSCMS different from other journalism schools is its holistic approach. It made me sensitive, observational, patient and intuitive, qualities that are rare and valued." - Megha Mamgain - Senior Producer/Anchor CNN-IBN, New Delhi (Alumni of 2003-04) 

"Even after a decade, the 10-month rigorous and incisive module at SSCMS continues to have an impact on me. I particularly admire the vision of our teachers who led the first batch and made not just journalists out of students but also poets, writers and thinking people interested in human stories. The syllabus put together by extremely competent faculty covered everything that, I feel even today, is like field notes....." - - Pooja Vashisht  Chief Copy Editor and Head of HT CITY editions Hindustan Times Chandigarh and Punjab (Alumni of 2000-01)

"I joined SSCMS, as soon as I completed my under-graduation in arts, I always wanted to be a journalist, but never knew if I had the required skill sets or even the confidence to be one. But one year at SSCMS, and I was ready for a high flying career as a journalist. As a student of SSCMS, the faculty and management gave me utmost support to venture out on my own and practice being a journalist, during which course, I freelanced with ‘The Hindu’ Education plus. One of my best experiences was getting the opportunity to be the editor of ‘Dateline Bangalore’, the SSCMS lab -journal, where my editorial skills were honed. We had faculty and guest faculty from the biggest media houses in Bangalore and the world, including CNN, NDTV, The Hindu who shared with us insights on life as a journalists and Journalism as a career. By the time I graduated from SSCMS, I had made documentary films, edited lab journals and freelanced with national dailies. All this combined with the emphasis on constructive journalism, and the practice of spiritual techniques like Sudarshan Kriya, taught as a part of the course, I evolved as a professional of strength and character. The huge pool of alumni network and faculty who are industry leaders made it easy for me to get placed in a great job. I now work as a feature writer/sub-editor at Deccan Herald, and have interviewed some of the biggest names in the country and worked on top stories, and I attribute it all to my one year at SSCMS which was the foundation on which I built a successful career." -- Madhuri Kalyan, Feature Writer/Sub Editor, Metrolife, Deccan Herald, Bangalore (Alumni of 2005-06)
