Description

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

The 10-week internship program offers hands-on work experience and one-on-one mentorship, plus orientation and tailored training sessions. Interns are treated like full-time staff members and are encouraged to pitch their own stories and projects. Previous interns have reported front-page news, created interactive graphics, edited photo projects, wrote colorful features, covered breaking news, produced long-form narrative podcast episodes, curated and published our journalism across platforms, and much more.

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.

Graphics Interns:
The Wall Street Journal is seeking graphics interns to work with our team of graphics reporters, editors, developers, designers and the broader newsroom. The Graphics department is responsible for driving innovative storytelling with graphics, interactives, data journalism and newsroom apps that are created for digital and print. The internship is based in New York City.

You should have a solid understanding of journalistic principles and a passion for visual journalism, reflected in portfolio examples of data visualizations, digital presentations or designs. You will be expected to have the initiative to take on and learn new tasks in a fast-moving environment, while communicating with other journalists around the newsroom.

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.

You should be a self-starter who understands the needs of our growing audience across print and digital platforms and able to work independently under deadline pressure. Dedication to high journalism standards is a must. The screening process puts heavy emphasis on work samples and prior experience.
