Description

The Wall Street Journal’s global real estate bureau is seeking an intern who is eager to learn about the ecoNomics, business and investing aspects of residential and commercial real estate. This is wonderful opportunity to write about one of the most popular subjects with readers: the housing market. Some stories can simply take the temperate of the housing market to see what’s hot and what’s Not. But other stories can dive deeper into ecoNomic and demographic data to discover interesting trends about home purchases and valuation, lingering foreclosure problems and the increasing role that investors play in the housing market. We also envision the intern tackling stories about the rental market. Indeed, as the U.S. shifts from a nation fixated on home ownership toward a nation of renters, there are plenty of stories to write about the implications of this trend.

Interns should be self-starters who understand the needs of the paper’s growing readership on various platforms. Dedication to high journalism standards, creative thinking, excellent writing skills and dogged reporting are absolute musts. Candidates should have a demonstrated interest in news as well as the ability to work independently and under deadline pressure.
This is a 10-week, full-time paid internship for undergraduates, recent graduates or graduate students who intend a career in journalism. It canNot be completed while taking classes.
The screening process puts heavy emphasis on journalistic experience. Most of those chosen have had prior internships in other large media organizations as well as experience on a campus news outlet or as a freelancer. Only finalists will be contacted.

The application for fall internships must be received No later than July 1, though applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Include a cover letter, resume and up to six published clips with your application.

This internship is based in New York City.
