Paid journalism internships @ Wall Street Journal

The Wall Street Journal will soon begin accepting applications for paid internships during Summer 2011 at its New York newsroom. Deadline is Nov. 1.

Internships are aimed at undergraduates or recent graduates who intend a career in journalism. To apply for this internship please submit a cover letter, resume and six to eight writing samples. We will select about 10 interns for the summer 2011 program. The selection process is highly competitive and most of those chosen have had prior internships with other newspapers as well as extensive experience on a campus newspaper. The internships are for ten-week periods in June, July and August. The pay is $700 a week.

The screening process puts heavy emphasis on clips and journalistic experience. Only the applicants who are selected for final consideration will be contacted. We will complete the selection process by the end of December.

ART INTERN: We also accept photo, infographics and art internship applications. Applicants should include samples of their work.
