Wall Street Journal is offering Summer 2021 Podcast Internship. The Wall Street Journal internship program is an opportunity for college juniors and seniors and graduate students to be fully immersed in our Pulitzer Prize-winning digital newsroom, working with some of the best journalists in the world. 

It offers hands-on work experience and one-on-one mentorship, plus orientation and tailored training sessions. Interns are treated like full-time staff members and are encouraged to pitch their own stories and projects. Previous interns have reported front-page news, created interactive graphics, edited photo projects, wrote colorful features, covered breaking news, produced long-form narrative podcast episodes, curated and published our journalism across platforms, and much more.

Internship duration and dates:

10-week internship program. Summer internships take place over June, July and August, though start dates can be flexible in certain circumstances.

Who can enroll:

  • The Wall Street Journal’s podcast internship is based in New York City and designed for students who intend to pursue a career in audio journalism.
  • You should have a strong interest in domestic and international news, as well as business and financial news. Though WSJ strives to be a welcoming, diverse newsroom. 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. The program has a storied history as a pipeline to a full-time job at the Journal, whether immediately or down the road.
  • Strong script writing, with an emphasis on writing for the ear
  • Audio producing, recording and editing experience, ideally in Pro Tools or Adobe Audition 
  • Comfort researching, finding and securing archival audio
  • Basic understanding of podcast formats and delivery methods
  • Social media savvy
  • Great communication and organizational skills
  • Our interns are self-starters who understand the needs of our growing audience across platforms and are able to work independently under deadline pressure.
  •  Sound news judgement and dedication to high journalism standards are a must. 
  • You will be expected to have the initiative to take on and learn new tasks in a fast-moving environment, while collaborating and communicating with other journalists around the newsroom. 

Internship duties:

The audio intern’s primary duties will include supporting the production of editorially sound and compelling audio for WSJ's podcasts, as well as publishing and promotion of shows both on the WSJ platform and off-platform.

Benefits offered:

Interns are paid $900 per week, and we help with the cost of public transportation. We do not provide housing, but we can help point you in the right direction.
