Summer 2019 Reporting Internships in the Americas at The Wall Street Journal
The Wall Street Journal’s internship program is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students who intend to pursue a career in journalism. This is a paid, full-time summer internship that lasts for 10 weeks. The summer internships generally take place over June, July and August, though start dates can be flexible in certain circumstances.
Interns are placed in various U.S. cities and, when appropriate, some of our bureaus in Canada or Latin America. For example, past interns have worked with the markets and finance team in New York, covered technology news from San Francisco, and handled general assignment and entertainment reporting out of Los Angeles. Interns are likely to be assigned to teams that cover topics including corporate news, markets, legal, U.S. news, arts and culture, real-time business news and sports.
Interns work closely with reporters and editors to deliver prompt, accurate reporting of news relevant to their beat. Interns are expected to generate their own story ideas and follow the stories through to completion with supervision and guidance from an editor.
Interns should be self-starters who understand the needs of our growing audience on various digital and print platforms and can work independently under deadline pressure. Dedication to high journalism standards and excellent writing and reporting skills are required. A demonstrated interest in business reporting is a plus.
The screening process puts heavy emphasis on journalistic experience. Most successful applicants have had prior reporting internships with other media organizations as well as experience working on a campus publication or as a freelancer.
Please include a cover letter, resume and up to six published samples of your work in your application, which is due no later than midnight Eastern time on Oct. 26.
It helps for applicants to state if they have a location preference and if they have any preferences in subject matter. Only finalists will be contacted.
