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.
Data is our compass.
We let data, hard facts, and numbers drive our strategy, our product development, and our way forward.
Here’s how we work: Our Data Strategy team collects and integrates our own proprietary data and third party licensed content – we process and integrate millions of articles a day from more than 33,000 news and business sources from nearly 200 countries in 26 languages, while also providing equity exchange data from 49 countries and over 80,000 listed instruments.
During this ten-week internship based in Princeton, NJ you will work on a variety of projects and tasks assigned by and under the direction of managers in the Data Strategy organization. Among the projects our Data Strategy interns might work on in 2018 are the following:
Projects to help ensure the smooth passage and timely delivery of content from providers ranging from The Wall Street Journal to social media sources.
Research related to customized reports and newsletters from online news content and publicly available records.
Content enrichment projects related to a variety of automated and rules-based systems used to categorize Dow Jones content.
