Currently, the Thought Leadership (TL) division of The Economist is offering exciting internship opportunities in Asia. TL interns function like entry-level 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 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, education and a variety of other subjects.
The intern's time will be split across a range of projects including year two of The Worldwide Educating for the Future Index, a ground-breaking study exploring the extent to which 50 countries around the world are instilling young people with the skills they need to succeed in future, and a Transparent Business Barometer, assessing how global companies are readying themselves for a wave of new data-protection regulations.
We are recruiting a six-month intern based in Hong Kong. Please note we cannot sponsor training visa for interns so applicants must be legally allowed to work in Hong Kong.
