Website Wall Street Journal

The Wall Street Journal is seeking an audience engagement intern to work with our Audience Voices team. The Audience Voices team is composed of journalists who partner with other journalists across the newsroom and use digital tools to cultivate audience conversations, highlight audience expertise and experiences, and connect our journalism with a diverse group of readers.

Your primary duties will include supporting the team on endeavors such as creating “reader response” stories that reflect our audience’s experiences, creating reader prompts to drive conversation on WSJ.com articles, moderating comments on WSJ.com stories, helping with Live Q&As, writing social copy for WSJ Noted Advisers, and more.

You should have a solid understanding of journalistic principles and a passion for audience engagement. You will be expected to have the initiative to take on and learn new tasks in a fast-moving environment.

This internship is less of a writing role and more of an opportunity to learn about and participate in the efforts of a major news organization to develop relationships with readers, elevate discourse in its comment section, and use new tools to engage with readers.

You will set yourself apart if you have a judicious eye, a social media savviness, thoughts on building community with readers, and an interest in domestic and international news. We are a close-knit team and being a strong team player is an important attribute, as well.

Application Instructions:

Please submit a resume, cover letter and no more than five samples of your work. (You may include links for work samples.) Only complete applications will be considered. The deadline to apply is Nov. 1, 2021.
