Currently, the thought leadership (TL) division of The Economist is offering exciting internship opportunities in Asia. TL interns function like entry-level editorial staff members—they don’t make copies, fetch coffee or answer phones.
Interns work closely with TL’s editors and have the opportunity to work on live projects and contribute to one-off research reports that will help advance their careers. TL’s internship program is competitive; we look for interns that have a profound interest in journalism, research and global trends in technology, healthcare and a variety of other subjects.
The intern's time will be split across a range of projects, including an index of the best Asian cities for business and leisure travel (or "bleisure") and a global barometer measuring executives' awareness of data-privacy issues and their readiness to face new regulations.
We are recruiting a six-month intern based in Hong Kong. Please note we cannot sponsor training visas for interns so applicants must be legally allowed to work in Hong Kong.
