If You’re Passionate About Media Apply For The Economist Internships
The Economist group will start advertising its 2012 internships in November 2011.
For all you business students and recent grads with a penchant for the media business, here's the latest info on the prestigious Economist Group internships that will run next year. As well as The Economist magazine, the Group owns the Economist Intelligence Unit, Euro Finance magazine, the capitol hill paper RollCall and several others.
"The Economist Group is an independent company that wants to attract and develop the best people in our industry, wherever they are from and wherever they are.
We are an international company, employing over 1000 staff throughout the world, with offices in London, Brussels, Frankfurt, Geneva, Paris, Vienna, Dubai, New York, Boston, Washington, DC, Hong Kong, mainland China, Singapore, Tokyo and India.
We offer competitive salaries, a comprehensive benefits package that includes pension (for positions in Europe and Asia or matching 401(k) in the US, extended vacation (US), life assurance (UK), health insurance, and bonus schemes that recognise and reward individual and team performance.
We offer internships, across our businesses, across the world. Business internships are aimed at graduates or equivalent individuals with a flair for business and a passion for the media.
Our interns work hard on real business issues: managing projects, analysing markets and presenting proposals; and you must be able to demonstrate your skills in these areas. Our business is global, so we are keen to receive applications from anywhere in the world.
Editorial internships are very limited but include the Nico Colchester Internship, Richard Casement Internship and Marjorie Deane Internship.
Interns, when they come, are treated as members of staff and are expected to join in accordingly. The competition is fierce.
You can hear past and present interns talk about their experiences here.
Please check the website from November 2011 to apply for opportunities in 2012."
