An internship at Dow Jones is not only about you – what you contribute individually, but also about how you function, interact and thrive on a team. Here at Dow Jones we value interns: your fresh perspectives, differing approaches, and “hey, let’s give this a try” attitude. We need your skills, innovative ideas and unique backgrounds to help us navigate the ever changing media/ news landscape.
If you apply to one of our internship programs, you’ll be joining a group of highly entrepreneurial, driven and yet collegial news junkies. We live and breathe news. We are up for the challenge of re-thinking the news business. And we do this in an open plan office with lots of coffee and lots of teamwork.
The Wall Street Journal’s internship program in Europe is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students who intend to pursue a career in journalism. This is a paid summer internship that lasts for 10 weeks. The summer internships generally take place over June, July and August, though start dates can be flexible in certain circumstances.
We are looking for interns to work in the London bureau, though there may be opportunity for a posting in one of our European bureaus, such as Paris, Rome, Berlin or Brussels. Please note that we will only contact applicants who pass initial screenings and who we wish to invite for an interview. We will focus heavily on newsgathering, a demonstrable enthusiasm for finance and business reporting and video production, and editing skills across print and online platforms.
Interns work closely with reporters and editors to deliver prompt, accurate reporting of news, features and multimedia material relevant to their beat. Interns are expected to generate their own story ideas and follow the stories through to completion with supervision and guidance from an editor. They might also assist reporters and editors with story research and other tasks.
Interns should be self-starters who understand the needs of the Journal’s growing audience on various digital and print platforms.
Dedication to the highest journalistic standards is vital. Candidates must be able to work independently and under deadline pressure. Fluency in English and at least one other additional European language is required.
Your application should include a cover letter, resume and six published samples of your work. Any clips published in a language other than English should be accompanied by a full English translation. Applications should be submitted by 1 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time/8 a.m Eastern Standard Time on Nov. 30.
Our selection process is competitive and rigorous and should be completed by mid-February 2019.
