Summer 2022 Video Internship at The Wall Street Journal
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 2021 interns reported front-page news, created interactive graphics, edited photo projects, wrote colorful features, produced videos, 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.
The Wall Street Journal’s video internship is based in New York City and designed for students who intend to pursue a career in video journalism.
Your primary duties will include supporting the production of editorially sound and visually compelling videos, as well as publishing and promotion of videos both on the Journal’s platforms and off-platform. You should have a strong interest in domestic and international news, as well as business and financial news. Basic video shooting and editing skills, as well as an understanding of video formats and delivery methods, are necessary.
You will set yourself apart if you are comfortable editing in Adobe Premiere and have experience with graphics in After Effects, Photoshop and Illustrator. Social media savviness and experience with vertical video are also a bonus.
Our interns are self-starters who understand the needs of our growing audience across platforms and are able to work independently under deadline pressure. Sound news judgement and dedication to high journalism standards are a must. You will be expected to have the initiative to take on and learn new tasks in a fast-moving environment, while collaborating and communicating with other journalists around the newsroom.
The screening process puts heavy emphasis on work samples and prior 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.
Note: This is not an internship producing documentaries. There will be some opportunities to shoot original video, but this is primarily a position editing and producing videos.
HOW TO APPLY:
Please submit a resume, cover letter and no more than five samples of your work. (You may include a link to a website for work samples.) Only complete applications will be considered. The deadline to apply is Nov. 1, 2021.
Summer internships take place over June, July and August, though start dates can be flexible in certain circumstances.
Only finalists will be contacted. We will review applications on a rolling basis and strive to make selections by the end of January.
WILL I BE PAID?
Yes, interns are paid $900 per week, and we help with the cost of public transportation. We do not provide housing, but we can help point you in the right direction.
