As an editorial intern, you will participate in the planning, research and writing of articles, blog posts and all the other things that go into the Beijinger website. Better yet, if you have a particular niche or obsession – be it food, nightlife, shopping or sports – we can arrange it so that you get to write as much as possible about the things you care the most about.

As everyone knows, getting published is the main route towards a career in journalism, and this could be your first stepping stone.

Most of our interns either end up working for us full time or getting swooped up by another media outlet that has seen their work published here.

4. A network of contacts in Beijing, especially in your field of interest
5. Hands-on knowledge of the behind-the-scenes work of a dynamic website
