The Wall Street Journal's Opinion section is seeking a Social Media intern for a 10-week paid summer internship in our New York City office. The internship is an opportunity to get hands-on experience assisting the social media editor and editorial team with drafting social media copy, optimizing digital stories, and promoting across social channels. Applicants should be juniors, seniors or recent graduates with a deep interest in US politics and digital journalism.
Our internships - formally, the Bartley Fellowships - are in honor and memory of our section's former Editor, Robert L. (Bob) Bartley. Opportunities will be awarded to young digital storytellers, whose views are broadly consistent with Bob’s and the Opinion section’s, philosophy. It is essential that applicants be familiar with, and interested in, the ideas for which the Journal editorial page stands.
Several fellows will be selected each year through an application process that will be judged by senior editors. Bartley Fellows will be assigned to a department within the Opinion section - Social Media; Features (Op-Eds and Columns); Arts in Review; or Book Reviews. While they're assigned to a department for the summer, all interns are encouraged to submit their ideas for articles or projects to editors in any part of the Opinion section.
