The Wall Street Journal is seeking an intern to work in the Hong Kong office or another bureau in Asia for the summer. Interns work closely with reporters and editors to deliver prompt, accurate reporting of news relevant to their beat.
This is a paid summer internship that lasts for 10 weeks. The summer internships generally take place over June, July and August, though start dates can be flexible in certain circumstances.
Your application should include a cover letter, resume and six published samples of your work. Any clips published in a language other than English should be accompanied by a full English translation. Applications should be submitted by 8 a.m Eastern Standard Time Jan. 1.
Interns work closely with reporters and editors to deliver prompt, accurate reporting of news, features and multimedia material relevant to their beat. Interns are expected to generate their own story ideas and follow the stories through to completion with supervision and guidance from an editor. They might also assist reporters and editors with story research and other tasks.
Interns should be self-starters who understand the needs of the Journal’s growing audience on various print and digital platforms.
Dedication to the highest journalistic standards is vital. Candidates must be able to work independently and under deadline pressure.
