The Wall Street Journal F. James Pensiero internship program is open for a current student or recent graduate who intends to pursue a career in business and financial journalism to work in New York for a summer internship. This scholarship-funded position includes a stipend to help with housing or travel costs.
In this role, you will work with reporters and editors to deliver prompt, accurate reporting of news relevant to your beat. You will be expected to generate your own story ideas and follow the stories through to completion with supervision and guidance from an editor.
Dedication to high journalism standards and excellent writing and reporting skills are a must. A demonstrated interest in business reporting is a plus, though prior business/finance reporting experience is not required.
Preference for the scholarship internship will be given to University of Oregon students, though it is open to those from any state school in the U.S.
Please submit a resume, cover letter and no more than five published clips (PDFs are ideal). You must also submit a one-page essay explaining why you want to cover business, finance or economic news.
The deadline to apply is Friday, Oct. 30, at noon New York time.
Summer internships take place over June, July and August, though start dates can be flexible in certain circumstances.
