The Wall Street Journal Business News Internship in Singapore (Summer 2024

Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal internship program in Singapore is an opportunity primarily for final year students (undergraduate and graduate) to work for Dow Jones Newswires, the real-time professional news service of The Wall Street Journal. College juniors enrolled in a degree program by the application deadline are also eligible to apply.

You will work in a fast-paced news environment, delivering short-breaking news stories and analysis on company earnings, executive moves and IPOs to our professional readership of more than 90 million institutional and retail investors. You will be expected to generate your own story ideas and follow those stories through to completion with supervision and guidance from an editor.

You should be a self-starter who understands the needs of our audience across multiple platforms and is able to work independently under deadline pressure. Dedication to high journalistic standards and excellent writing and reporting skills are required. A demonstrated interest in business reporting is a plus, though prior business/finance reporting experience is not required.

You should have completed at least one prior reporting internship with another professional media organization or published exceptional work with a campus news outlet or as a freelancer.

Applicants must be authorized to work in Singapore and be able to write with proficiency for an English-language audience. Interns will assist in the coverage of companies based in and listed in China and Hong Kong, so a native level of proficiency in Chinese is also preferred.


Please upload one PDF document (max. 10MB). Your application document should contain:

  • A cover letter, including a response to the following question: How would you approach covering the tensions between the U.S. and China? (max. 800 words)
  • Your résumé.
  • Three examples of your published work. Please include full articles, not hyperlinks.

The deadline to apply is Monday, Dec. 4, 2023 at noon Eastern time. Late or incomplete submissions will not be considered.


10 weeks between mid-June and mid-August.

Only finalists will be contacted. We will review applications on a rolling basis and strive to make selections by the end of February.
