Wall Street Journal 2023 Spring and Summer Newsroom Internships in the U.S.

The Wall Street Journal internship program is an opportunity for college juniors and seniors and graduate students to be immersed in our Pulitzer Prize-winning newsroom, working with some of the best journalists in the world.

The paid internship program offers hands-on work experience and one-on-one mentorship, plus a robust orientation and tailored training sessions. Interns are treated like staff members and are encouraged to pitch their own stories and projects.

The Journal created a part-time spring internship that launched in the U.S. in 2022, on top of the long-established 10-week summer program and full-time spring health reporting internship. This expansion of our internship program helps us meet our commitment to recruit and build a pipeline of high-potential, diverse candidates who can bring their varied backgrounds, experiences and perspectives into our newsroom.

The 15-week part-time spring internship allows students in the New York or Washington, D.C., metropolitan areas to get newsroom experience, while continuing to attend school. Interns will be required to work a minimum of 16 hours to a maximum of 20 hours per week, depending on their class load.

Special consideration for the part-time spring internship is given to students who come from underrepresented communities, local public schools, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), other minority-serving institutions and professional affinity groups.

We offer internships in reporting, graphics, data reporting, podcasts, video, social media, photo editing and audience engagement. Past reporting interns have worked in the U.S. and Europe covering beats across markets, finance, business, economics, careers, sports, education, real estate, health, entertainment, technology, politics and national news.

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.

Summer interns are paid $900 per week and part-time spring interns are paid $25.71 an hour.

The program has a storied history as a pipeline to a full-time job at the Journal, whether immediately or down the road.
