Summer 2017 MarketWatch Journalism Internship

Job Description:

Dow Jones is a global provider of news and business information, delivering content to consumers and organizations around the world across multiple formats, including print, digital, mobile and live events. Dow Jones has produced unrivaled quality content for more than 125 years and today has one of the world’s largest news gathering operations globally. It produces leading publications and products including the flagship Wall Street Journal, America’s largest newspaper by paid circulation; Factiva, Barron’s, MarketWatch, Financial News, DJX, Dow Jones Risk & Compliance, Dow Jones Newswires, and Dow Jones VentureSource.

Are you an aspiring journalist who is adept at finding the financial angle in any story — and then using it to tell stories that help readers make better-informed financial decisions? (Or, perhaps, one who wants to learn how?) If so, we want your talents here at MarketWatch.

We are seeking an undergraduate or graduate student who intends to pursue a career in journalism for paid, full-time 10 week summer internships in our New York headquarters and London bureau.

This is an opportunity to work directly alongside our reporters, editors, visual journalists and other newsgathering and presentation teams as they cover news and themes in markets, corporate events, politics, economics, personal finance and other topics relevant to our audience.

The ideal candidate is enterprising, energetic, collegial and eager to learn about how to serve an audience in real time across digital platforms. An interest in at least one of reporting, writing, editing, web production, visual/data/interactive journalism or video editing is required, as is fluency in English and a commitment to the highest journalistic ethics.

Enthusiasm for financial and business journalism is a must; relevant experience is preferred but not required

Please include a resume, cover letter and work samples in your application.

Deadline: January 31, 2017
