Business Insider is hiring an intern for its markets team

Business Insider’s markets team is looking for someone who is fascinated by financial news and wants to tell the world about it.

The ideal intern will be someone who is following the price of oil and gold, the Nikkei in Japan, and the latest developments out of Greece.

We’re looking for someone who gets a thrill out of scouring earning reports, economic data, and futures markets for the next big story.

And we need someone who reads The Financial Times, Les Echos, The Australian, or The Guardian like it’s their local paper.

This role will involve a large amount of reading, aggregation, summation, analysis, and some reporting.

Our interns are an integral part of our team, and many of our current writers and editors started as interns. We seek out self-starters and people who are enthusiastic about collaborating with other reporters, video producers, social media editors, and other team members.

This is a full-time internship position at our Flatiron headquarters in New York City. The internship will run for six months, and interns are expected to work 40 hours per week.

Apply HERE with a resume and cover letter telling us why you’re the right person for the internship.
