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.
Winter Reporting Internship Co vering Science and Health Care for The Wall Street Journal
The Wall Street Journal is seeking undergraduates, recent graduates or graduate students who intend to pursue a career in science journalism.
This is a 10-week, full-time paid internship that would start in January or February. It cannot be completed while taking classes. The internship will be based in New York with WSJ’s Health & Science bureau.
Include a cover letter, resume and up to six published samples of your work in your online application, which is due no later than midnight Eastern time Nov. 15, 2017. Only finalists will be contacted.
The screening process puts heavy emphasis on journalistic experience. A science background or familiarity with research would be a plus but is not required. Most of those chosen have had prior internships at other large media organizations, as well as experience writing for a campus publication or as a freelancer.
Interns work closely with reporters and editors to deliver prompt, accurate reporting of science news. Interns write spot stories based on scientific studies; explanatory pieces that analyze science angles related to breaking news; and features that uncover trends in various fields of science from biology to environmental science to nanotechnology, among other projects. Interns are expected to generate their own story ideas and follow them through to completion supervision and guidance from an editor.
WSJ interns should be self-starters with the ability to help develop video, graphics and social-media content to reach readers on all of our digital and print platforms. Dedication to high journalism standards and excellent writing skills are required. Candidates should have prior reporting experience and a demonstrated interest in science news as well as the ability to work independently and under deadline pressure.
