Reporting Internship at The Wall Street Journal

Website Wall Street Journal

The Wall Street Journal’s reporting internships in the U.S. are designed for students who intend to pursue a career in journalism. The majority of our interns will be based in New York, with a few assigned to Washington D.C., Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Houston or Detroit.

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

Application Instructions:

Please submit a resume, cover letter and no more than five published clips. (PDFs are ideal.) Only complete applications will be considered. The deadline to apply is Nov. 1, 2021.
