Deadline: 1 November 2012
Internships are aimed at undergraduates or recent graduates who intend a career in journalism. The selection process is highly competitive and most of those chosen have had prior internships in other large media organizations as well as experience on a campus newspaper or as a freelancer. The internships are for ten-week periods in June, July and August (earlier start dates are possible in certain circumstances). The pay is $700.00 a week. The screening process puts heavy emphasis on clips and journalistic experience.
It helps for applicants to state if they have preferences in where they intern, and also if they have any preferences in subject matter (for example: metro, economics, politics, finance, arts, WSJ. magazine, etc). We cannot guarantee to meet your preferences, but it helps us in placing interns.
Dow Jones Newswires interns are selected from those applicants who have a demonstrated interest in and aptitude for business and financial journalism.
