Journalism: Foreign Affairs Internship for The Economist

Posted on behalf of The Economist. Blogged by Hugh Nicholson-Lailey on 06/03/2018.

Great opportunities don’t always have a massive flag over them to say ‘apply here’. Hidden in the small print of this week’s Economist magazine (p.57 if you must know) is a summer internship opportunity with The Economist.

Foreign internship:

We are seeking a summer intern to write about foreign affairs for The Economist. The internship will be London-based, will last for three months or more, and will pay £2,000 per month. Anyone is welcome to apply. Applicants should send an original unpublished article of up to 600 words on any issue in international politics or foreign affairs, a CV and a cover letter to foreignintern@economist.com. We are looking for originality, wit, crisp writing and clarity of thought. The deadline is 3 April.
