INSIDE THOMSON REUTERS
Celebrating our interns and new grads
This year for National Intern Day, we’ve been celebrating our resilient Thomson Reuters interns and new grads. Adapting from an in-office experience to a virtual experience, or starting their new positions remotely, our international interns shared how they made their mark at Thomson Reuters so far in 2020.
Brigitta, Legal Content Marketing Intern – MSP, Minnesota, United States
"Starting a job remotely during a global pandemic has had some challenges. Nonetheless, I have been blown away by the efforts Thomson Reuters has made to make us feel a part of the team without stepping foot into the office. This is my work from home setup. No, it isn't a fancy double monitor setup or on an actual desk for that matter, but I couldn't be more thankful. When I accepted my internship in November, I never thought I'd be working off my kitchen counter. I feel so lucky to say that my internship continued during these trying times, and I had the opportunity to work from home."
Janvi, Technology Intern – Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India
"Starting a new job is always a mix of excitement and nervousness - especially with your first internship. Thomson Reuters is special to me because it gave me my first experience as a Tech Intern and my current opportunity as an Associate Software Engineer. I'm developing my skills as a technologist while being inspired by female leaders in technology roles. I've felt supported throughout COVID-19 through our transition from in-office to remote working. Most importantly, I jumped out of my comfort zone to grow personally and as a technologist by mentors who believed in me."
Leo, Data Scientist Intern - Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
"I'm completing my Master's in Computer Science, and my expertise is in Natural Language Processing. This summer, I'm interning on a team with researchers who are as obsessed with Deep Learning as I am. We're like a startup culture; we're constantly sharing knowledge, encouraging innovation, and collaborating but as an international team. Now, working from home, the way I work remains the same, and I'm still applying state-of-the-art methods to real-world use cases. While I like working from home and saving on my commute time, I do miss the office ping-pong breaks with my team."
Elizabeth, Reuters Training Programme Alumni – London, United Kingdom
"Reuters has been an amazing organization to start my journalism career. Completing my rotations in the London office in the Reuters Journalism Training Programme, I was blown away by the quality of teaching and the sheer enthusiasm Reuters journalists have for their work. Through the Programme, I got a massive range of experience in a short time—from reporting on Brexit night in Parliament Square to asking a cabinet minister a question about Huawei at a press event. Moving into my new role during COVID-19 seemed daunting, but as we work from home, journalists are sharing advice and helping me pitch my story ideas."
