Summer 2024 The Wall Street Journal U.S. Social Video Internship
locations: NYC - 1211 Ave of the Americas
The Wall Street Journal internship program 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.
Working with our social media team, you will produce vertical videos for platforms such as Instagram, TikTok and Snapchat. You will be involved in all steps of production: conceptualization, reporting, scripting, shooting, editing and distributing. This team works directly with reporters and editors around the newsroom, as well as our video team to create engaging short, social-first breaking news and original videos.
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 journalism standards and excellent video editing skills are required. You should have experience with video editing software, including Premiere Pro, After Effects, Adobe InDesign and/or other relevant tools. Animation skills are a plus, and so is comfort being on-camera. You should also have deep knowledge of video-driven social platforms.
You should have completed at least one prior journalism internship with another professional media organization or published exceptional work with a campus news outlet or as a freelancer.
