TheStreet logoTheStreet.com co-founder Jim Cramer and the financial news site are launching a business journalism fellowship program.

The Jim Cramer Business Journalism Fellowship is a six-month intensive journalism training program aimed at providing digital journalism training to early career professionals interested in business news.

Jim Cramer fellows will work at TheStreet alongside our editorial team to create compelling, actionable news and analysis on the markets and the world of business. In addition to working daily in the newsroom, fellows will receive regular education from Jim Cramer, Susan Antilla and other award-winning journalists who write for TheStreet. The fellowship is designed to offer practical experience along with direct education.

Because Jim Cramer and TheStreet have built a reputation around smart commentary and analysis, in addition to straight news, the fellows will be taught more than the basics of reporting and writing. There will be a focus on writing smart takes on news of the day.

Each class will consist of two or three fellows. Each fellow will have the opportunity to work with our text, video and photo teams.

Eligible candidates will have a journalism undergraduate or graduate degree or equivalent work experience as well as a demonstrated interest in business and financial news.

Post-grad applicants with degrees in other disciplines, e.g. economics and business, will be considered if they have published works. Applicants must have work authorization for at least 18 months following graduation.

Fellows will be paid a weekly stipend each week for six months plus some company benefits.

The inaugural fellowship class will start July 1.  Those interested in applying should send their resumes and published works to Jeremy Greenfield, contributors editor at TheStreet, jeremy.greenfield@thestreet.com
