Journalism Internship in Hong Kong
The Wall Street Journal is seeking a budding multimedia journalist to serve as an online intern in Hong Kong for Summer 2013. Over the course of 10 weeks, the intern will work in a high-pressure, real-time newsroom, alongside other editors and reporters, testing your skills at an impressive variety of tasks. You must be passionate about news and stories and work calmly under tight deadlines.
This is not a technical or programming internship. Qualified candidates need knowledge of online publishing and Web page-management, a demonstrated aptitude for using social media and proficiency in working with videos, photos graphics and be able to edit copy. Skilled Final Cut editors, strong video shooters or those with experience using HTML5 or Flash will have an edge in seeking this highly competitive position. Fluency in at least one Asian language is a plus. Day-to-day responsibilities will include editing and publishing of stories and graphics, working with photos, video and slideshows, creating polls and helping our social media efforts. Interns can expect the chance to flex their programming, writing or video storytelling muscles during the internship.
Pay is $700 per week. Employment will be contingent upon securing the right to work in Hong Kong. Room and board will be the intern’s own responsibility.
Please send cover letter, CV and supporting links to show your best, most-diverse writing, video, graphics or other superior online work to firstname.lastname@example.org. Application deadline is Friday, Nov. 2, 2012, with the internship to commence sometime in June 2013.
