The Wall Street Journal is seeking a photo editing intern to work with the photo team based in New York. The photo team researches and commissions photographs for digital and print editions of The Wall Street Journal. We’re looking for someone with interest in visual storytelling, enthusiasm for good journalism and current events, and sharp instincts for news and news values. You should have a basic understanding of photography and familiarity with photo editing programs, such as Photoshop and Photo Mechanic, and you must have evident knowledge of photojournalism and documentary photography. You should have strong communication and organizational skills, plus a positive attitude and a drive to complete work quickly and efficiently. Social media savviness, from Twitter to Instagram, is a must. Basic coding skills are a plus.
While we welcome active photographers to the department, the majority of the work during the internship will be in daily photo editing and department production assistance.
