Internship, The Journal

Spotify team


The Show: The Journal is a daily narrative news podcast made in partnership between Gimlet and the Wall Street Journal. Each day, we tell one important news story in 15-20 minutes. Our show focuses on money and business, applying those lenses to general news or zooming in on business stories that other outlets do not tell. We cover everything from the war in Ukraine to the momentum around unionization to the business problems facing Oatly, a leading maker of oat milk. Recently, we published an explosive investigation into Facebook alongside the Wall Street Journal’s print paper.
The Role: The Journal is hiring an intern to join the team for the Summer/Fall of 2022 (July 11, 2022 - December 22, 2022). This is a paid, full time role based anywhere in North America, working East coast hours.
Our ideal candidate is a fan of the show, an enthusiastic consumer of news, curious about business, and excited about narrative storytelling. We are looking for someone who’s eager to learn the ins and outs of making a daily news show -- whether that means supporting hosts or producers in their roles, listening and responding to honest and open feedback, or contributing ideas of their own. Experience with podcasting or audio editing is a big plus.
What You'll Do:
  • Pitch story ideas
  • Find scoring and archival tape for episodes
  • Cut audio for daily productions needs (there will be training on this)
  • Find and book guests
  • Support producers in daily and long-term production needs
  • Attend interviews and edits of episodes in the works
  • Help make the best show possible


What You'll Bring:
  • Enthusiasm for working quickly and to a deadline
  • The determination to track down archival audio and facts
  • Experience in some kind of news environment
  • Some familiarity with audio editing software. If you know protools, great! If not, we’ll teach you
  • A low ego and collaborative spirit
  • A desire to tell new, compelling stories
  • A clear and open communication style
  • Humility and a desire to improve
Where You'll Be:
  • We are a distributed workforce enabling our band members to find a work mode that is best for them!
  • Where in the world? For this role, it can be within the Americas region in which we have a work location.
  • Prefer an office to work from home instead? Not a problem! We have plenty of options for your working preferences. Find more information about our Work From Anywhere options here.
  • Working hours? We operate within the Eastern Standard time zone for collaboration.
