Summer 2024 The Wall Street Journal Graphics Internship

locations: NYC - 1211 Ave of the Americas

Job Description:


The Wall Street Journal graphics internship is an opportunity primarily for college juniors to work in our award-winning newsroom in New York. Seniors and graduate students enrolled in a degree program by the application deadline are also eligible to apply. 

Your primary duties will include the production of compelling, and editorially strong, visual journalism. You will be asked to build projects, both alone and across teams, that take advantage of your strengths. This may include data-driven interactives, maps, charts, social media promos or other explanatory work. You will learn WSJ systems and best practices for the creation of information graphics. 

You should be a self-starter who understands the needs of our audience across multiple platforms and is able to work independently under deadline pressure. Dedication to high journalistic 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.

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.

For static data visualization, experience with Adobe Illustrator is required. For interactive graphics, experience with HTML and CSS is required. Experience with JavaScript and D3.js is a significant bonus.

HOW TO APPLY:

  • Please upload one PDF document (max. 10MB). Your application document should contain:
  • A cover letter, including a response to the following question: Based on the 2016 and 2020 U.S. presidential elections, what could news organizations do differently to cover the 2024 presidential election? (max. 800 words)
  • Your résumé.
  • Three examples of your published work in data visualization, digital presentation or design. Please include full articles, not hyperlinks. 

The deadline to apply is Monday, Oct. 23, 2023 at noon Eastern time. Late or incomplete submissions will not be considered.

TIMING:

10 weeks between mid-June and mid-August.

Only finalists will be contacted. We will review applications on a rolling basis and strive to make selections by the end of January.
