WSJ 2024 U.S. Internships

The Wall Street Journal internship program is an opportunity primarily for college juniors to work in our award-winning newsrooms in either New York, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco or Washington D.C. Seniors and graduate students enrolled in a degree program by the application deadline are also eligible to apply. The deadline to apply is Monday, Oct. 23, 2023 at noon Eastern time.

We are seeking self-starters who understand the needs of our audience across multiple platforms and are able to work independently under deadline pressure. Dedication to high journalism standards and excellent writing and reporting skills are required.

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. You should have completed at least one prior reporting internship with another professional media organization or published exceptional work with a campus news outlet or as a freelancer.

The paid internship program offers practical work experience and mentorship, plus a robust orientation and tailored training sessions. Interns are encouraged to pitch their own stories and projects and follow them through to completion with supervision and guidance from an editor.

Application links can be found at Applications for Europe and Asia will be posted later this fall. Visit our website to learn more about the program or the FAQs page.
