Job Description

The Wall Street Journal is seeking a graphics intern to work with our team of graphics editors, developers, designers, as well as the broader newsroom. The Graphics department is responsible for driving innovative storytelling with graphics, interactives, data journalism and newsroom apps that are created for digital and print.

 

The following attributes are considered mandatory for all applicants:

  • A solid understanding of journalistic principles
  • A passion for visual journalism, reflected in portfolio examples of data visualizations, digital presentations or designs
  • The initiative to take on and learn new tasks in a fast-moving environment.
  • Excellent communication skills

 

For static data visualization, experience with Adobe Illustrator is required. For interactive graphics, experience with HTML and CSS is required. Experience with JavaScript and D3.js is a significant bonus.

 

This paid internship is 10 weeks long and generally begins in June, though the start date can be flexible in certain circumstances. The position is based in New York.

 

WSJ interns should be self-starters who understand the needs of our growing readership on various print and digital platforms. Dedication to high journalism standards is a must. The screening process puts heavy emphasis on work samples and experience. Only finalists will be contacted.

 

Include a cover letter, resume and up to six samples of your work in your application, which is due no later than midnight Eastern time on Nov. 1.
