Job Description:

INTERNSHIP OVERVIEW:

The Wall Street Journal part-time spring internship program is an opportunity for college juniors, seniors and graduate students to be immersed in our Pulitzer Prize-winning newsroom, working with some of the best journalists in the world, while continuing to attend school.

The 15-week, paid part-time internship program offers hands-on work experience, one-on-one mentorship, plus orientation and tailored training sessions. Interns are treated like staff members and are encouraged to pitch their own stories and projects.

To apply, students need to live or attend school in the New York or Washington D.C. metropolitan areas, since the spring internship program will be based in those bureaus. Preference would be given to: applicants who come from underrepresented communities; students at local public schools; students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), or Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs); and members of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ), the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA), the Native American Journalists Association (NAJA) and the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA).

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.

AUDIO/PODCAST INTERNSHIP:

The Wall Street Journal's podcast internship is based in New York City or Washington, D.C. and designed for students who intend to pursue a career in audio journalism.

The audio intern's primary duties will include supporting the production of editorially sound and compelling audio for WSJ's podcasts, as well as publishing and promotion of shows both on the WSJ platform and off-platform. You should have a strong interest in domestic and international news, as well as business and financial news.

You should have the following skills:

  • Strong script writing, with an emphasis on writing for the ear
  • Audio producing, recording and editing experience, ideally in Pro Tools or Adobe Audition
  • Comfort researching, finding and securing archival audio
  • Basic understanding of podcast formats and delivery methods
  • Social media savvy
  • Great communication and organizational skills
  • Experience in a daily audio newsroom
  • Experience reporting in audio


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 judgment 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.

HOW TO APPLY:

Please submit a resume, cover letter and no more than five published work samples or portfolio links. (PDFs for documents and MP3s for audio samples are ideal.) Only complete applications will be considered. The deadline to apply is Monday, Oct. 17, 2022 at noon New York time.

TIMING:

Spring internships can take place between January and early May to accommodate the schedules of students who are still enrolled in school. Interns will be required to work a minimum of 16 hours to a maximum of 20 hours per week over 15 weeks, depending on their class load. Applicants with availability of at least two full work days are ideal.

Only finalists will be contacted. We will review applications on a rolling basis and strive to make selections before Thanksgiving.

WILL I BE PAID?

Yes, interns are paid a rate of $25.71 an hour, and there may be a stipend to help with the cost of public transportation. We do not provide housing, but we can help point you in the right direction.
