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 internship program is an opportunity for college juniors, seniors and graduate students to be fully immersed in our Pulitzer Prize-winning newsroom, working with some of the best journalists in the world.
The 10-week, paid full-time internship program offers hands-on work experience, one-on-one mentorship, plus orientation and tailored training sessions. Interns are treated like full-time staff members and are encouraged to pitch their own stories and projects. The summer 2022 interns reported front-page news, created interactive graphics, edited photo projects, wrote colorful features, produced videos, assisted in daily production of podcasts, reported and produced long form narrative podcast episodes, curated and published our journalism across platforms, and much more.
We strive to be a welcoming, diverse newsroom. You don’t need to be an expert in business or finance to apply, but you do need to be curious and eager to learn. The program has a storied history as a pipeline to a full-time job at the Journal, whether immediately or down the road.
DIGITAL PLATFORM INTERNS:
The Wall Street Journal is looking for applicants to join its digital platform team in New York. Our digital platform team is responsible for delivering our journalism in all the places readers find us. Editors on this team collaborate across the newsroom to ensure our stories are reaching the right audience at the right times. During your internship, you will split your time between the on- and off-platform teams.
The on-platform team ensures that WSJ.com and our WSJ mobile apps convey the day’s news priorities and are giving our audiences the best possible experience at all hours of the day. This team is uniquely focused on our subscribers, their needs and habits and the news experience we create to best serve them. This team curates our native platforms and manages our mobile push and email alerts.
Millions more readers discover the Journal through third-party channels. The off-platform team ensures that our journalism is distributed effectively across these channels, from Facebook and Twitter to Instagram and Snapchat. This team works directly with our coverage areas to craft compelling social plans and sharp language for our most important stories to ensure they find the biggest possible audience. They are uniquely focused on reaching new readers that could become potential Journal subscribers.
The ideal intern candidate brings an enthusiasm for our brand of journalism, including both breaking and enterprise news. We’re looking for someone who demonstrates excellent news judgment, strong editing and sharp writing skills and has a sense of the ideal visual presentation for various platforms. Familiarity with digital publishing and analytics tools is a plus.
The screening process puts heavy emphasis on journalistic experience. You should have completed at least one prior internship with another professional media organization, or done exceptional work with a campus news outlet or as a freelancer.
Summer internships take place over June, July and August, though start dates can be flexible in certain circumstances.
WILL I BE PAID?
Yes, interns are paid $28.57 per hour, and we help with the cost of public transportation. We do not provide housing, but we can help point you in the right direction.
