Internship in the Creation of Press Videos in the USA

The Wall Street Journal requires interns to apply for its internship program. It is an opportunity for college juniors, seniors and graduate students to be fully immersed in the Pulitzer Prize-winning newsroom, working with some of the best journalists in the world. The 10-week internship program 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. The summer 2019 interns reported front-page news, created interactive graphics, edited photo projects, wrote colorful features, produced videos, curated and published the journalism across platforms, and much more.
