Journalism students or recent graduates can apply for a paid internship.
Thomson Reuters is seeking summer interns for its London, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Beijing locations.
These internships are a crash course in hands-on business, political and general news reporting. Every intern will report to a senior editor and be assigned a journalist mentor to provide advice and guidance. They are expected to write regularly and deliver in-depth stories during their assignment.
Interns will receive several days of formal training before they start work, focused on writing skills, journalism ethics and basic financial knowledge. They may also be able to take advantage of other, regularly scheduled training opportunities during the summer, depending on where they’re based.
Six interns will be selected to train in Europe and Asia, respectively. London internship sessions are six weeks long, and Asia internships last eight weeks.
Fluency in English is required.
The deadline to apply is March 31.

The Guardian’s Reader’s Editor Chris Elliott will be speaking at Brunel on Tuesday, Oct 11, at 12 noon in LC217.
Chris is also a leading member of the NCTJ. He will discuss what journalists need to launch their careers in the digital age, and will answer questions.
This week’s speaker Richard Peppiatt left his job as a reporter at the Daily Star by writing an extraordinary letter to proprietor Richard Desmond to denounce the paper’s journalism – and did so publicly by leaking the letter to The Guardian.
In the letter he admits to being involved in made-up showbiz stories, but says his decision to leave the paper followed coverage of the English Defence League, and a controversial front-page story about it becoming a political party – which he believes was wrongly hyped-up.
Many a morning I’ve hit my speed dial button to Muslim rent-a-rant Anjem Choudary to see if he fancied pulling together a few lines about whipping drunks or stoning homosexuals.
Our caustic “us and them” narrative needs nailing home every day or two, and when asked to wield the hammer I was too scared for my career, and my bank account, to refuse…
This lecture will be a fascinating and disturbing account of his experiences but also an important discussion about ethics.
