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 digital newsroom, working with some of the best journalists in the world.

The 10-week internship program offers hands-on work experience, one-on-one mentorship and tailored training sessions. Interns are treated like full-time staff members and are encouraged to pitch their own stories and projects. Previous interns have reported front-page news, created interactive graphics, edited photo projects, wrote colorful features, covered breaking news, 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.

EUROPE REPORTING INTERNS:

The Wall Street Journal’s reporting internships in Europe are designed for students who intend to pursue a career in journalism. We are looking for interns to work in the London bureau.

You will work closely with other reporters and editors to deliver prompt, accurate reporting of news. 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 may also be asked to assist reporters and editors with story research and other tasks.

You should be a self-starter who understands the needs of our growing audience on various platforms and 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.

The screening process puts heavy emphasis on journalistic experience. You should have completed at least one prior reporting internship with another professional media organization, or published exceptional work with a campus news outlet or as a freelancer.

Fluency in English and at least one additional European language is strongly preferred.
