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.
