The Wall Street Journal is the most trusted news organization in America and the best source of news and analysis for ambitious people. Our reporters, editors, developers, and audio and visual journalists around the world create important and impactful stories, firmly rooted in fact and adhering to the highest ethical standards. We report without fear or bias, and we maintain a proper sense of perspective, detachment and objectivity in our reporting. We're using the latest technology to develop new ways of publishing our journalism on a variety of platforms, experimenting with augmented reality and cutting-edge video and mobile storytelling formats. We’re looking for great journalists and innovative minds to join our newsroom as we continue to tell the important stories and further reinvent our journalism for digital priorities.
The Wall Street Journal is looking for a current student or recent graduate who intends to pursue a career in business and financial journalism to work in New York for a summer internship.
Preference will be given to University of Oregon students, though the internship is open to those from any state school in the U.S. Students majoring in business journalism or journalism with a second major or minor in economics or business will be favored.
This is a paid, 10-week summer internship. It also includes a $3,000 stipend to assist with housing or travel costs. Applications are due by Dec. 1 and must include a cover letter, resume, five published clips and a one-page essay explaining why you want to cover business, finance or economic news.
The screening process puts heavy emphasis on journalistic experience. Most of those chosen have had prior reporting internships with other media organizations as well as experience working on a campus publication or as a freelancer.
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. Only finalists will be contacted.
