Dow Jones is offering an exceptional 10-week paid internship opportunity to beginning journalists – juniors, seniors or recent graduates with reporting and writing backgrounds at their school newspaper or elsewhere – in the New York City office in the US. The internships are an opportunity to get hands-on experience working alongside some of the best opinion writers and editors in the world. The Summer 2020 Books and Arts Criticism Internships award young thinkers and writers who intend to pursue a career in journalism or cultural criticism. Internships are paid, and generally take place during June, July and August, though start dates can be flexible.

Responsibilities:

The fellow(s) selected to work with the Books and Arts teams will assist in commissioning reviews, researching, fact-checking and editing content for the print and digital editions of the Journal, contributing to social media and digital production, and will be encouraged to submit their own ideas for exhibitions or other cultural events to review. They may also submit ideas for articles or projects to editors in any part of the Opinion section.

Requirements:

  1. Though a reporting and/or writing background is a plus, the fellowship is primarily an editing internship. Therefore applicants should have experience editing arts or arts-related copy for their college newspaper, literary magazine, or a comparable publication.
  2. Students from any discipline may apply, but preference will be granted to those concentrating in literature, history, a foreign language, classics, pre-law, music, theater, art history, studio art, architecture, philosophy, political science or archaeology—via coursework (though not necessarily a major) or sustained leisure-time activity.
  3. An appreciation for both the Western and non-Western canons is desirable, as is an understanding of current issues in the arts. 
  4. A demonstrated ability to multitask and meet daily deadlines is critical for success, as is attention to detail and a focus on accuracy. 
  5. Applicants should be familiar with technology as it relates to journalism. 
  6. Social media experience with a publication or brand would be a plus.
  7. Applicants who are able to demonstrate familiarity with the section’s content will be especially attractive.

Funding:

This internship is paid, and Dow Jones is committed to providing reasonable accommodation for qualified individuals with disabilities, in the job application and/or interview process.
