Dow Jones Summer 2023 Reporting Internship in Asia-Pacific at The Wall Street Journal in Tokyo, Japan

Job Description:

INTERNSHIP OVERVIEW:

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 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, 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.

ASIA-PACIFIC REPORTING INTERNS:

The Wall Street Journal’s reporting internships in the Asia-Pacific region are designed for students who intend to pursue a career in journalism. We are looking for an intern to work as part of the Tokyo bureau, though there may be an opportunity to work in one of the other bureaus in Asia, such as Singapore or Hong Kong.

A Tokyo intern will work closely with reporters and editors to report news from Japan and the region promptly and accurately. You will be asked to assist reporters and editors with story research and interviews. Also, you will be expected to generate your own story ideas and follow those stories through to completion with supervision and guidance from an editor.

You should be a self-starter who understands the needs of our growing audience on various platforms and is able to 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, though prior business/finance reporting experience is not required.

Fluency in English is strongly preferred. Ideally, you are authorized to work in the country where the internship is based and speak the local language fluently, such as Japanese or Mandarin.

HOW TO APPLY:

Please submit a resume, cover letter and no more than five published clips. Any clips published in a language other than English should be accompanied by a full English translation. Only complete applications will be considered. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2023 at noon Singapore time.

If you have a location preference, please indicate your top choices in your cover letter.

TIMING:

Summer internships take place between June and September, 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 mid-March.
