Internships at IHS Markit
Open the door to outstanding career opportunities with a global information leader
What to Expect
We offer an, exciting learning opportunity for our summer interns. The program runs for 10 weeks over summer across a number of offices globally.
You will be given a real job and form a key part of a team, undertaking work that is valuable to us and to you. You will have objectives, which will be reviewed and discussed with your manager throughout the program. Essentially, you will be treated like all other employees.
In addition to your core job, you will work with interns in different locations on a project that poses a real business challenge. At the end of the project, you will present to our COO and/or other members of the senior management team. This is a highlight of the program, which will help drive your business acumen, team work and presentation skills to the next level.
In addition to on-the-job training, we organize regular learning sessions to help you develop core business skills. Business information meetings will give you exposure to different areas of our business, introduce you to the world of finance and enable you to meet various business leaders.
Social and networking opportunities
Our intern program includes plenty of social events and networking opportunities and you will also participate in a volunteer project. In addition to your manager, you will be paired with a mentor and an intern ‘buddy’ based in an office in another country.
Industries We Serve

“From day one when I was overwhelmed by tons of acronyms, and worried about where to have lunch for the next two months, to week ten when we confidently presented to a senior audience our bold ideas on Innovation and a multi-tiered data analysis project, my internship with IHS Markit was full of challenges and achievement. IHS Markit created an inviting environment for interns to learn different aspects of its business and network with a wide range of people, making staying in your comfort zone the last thing you would do. The broad exposure to company's products, people and culture over the summer helped me ask the right questions, find the right resources and not panic at the acronyms – they all make sense now.”

“Walking in to a very structured internship program straight out of college was a challenge that I undeniably relished. The entire internship was a learning experience providing me with ample opportunity to experiment with different roles within my department and figure out where I saw myself contributing the most. A year on from the end of my internship I find myself working as a Junior Product Manager for a product that is disrupting the FinTech market. IHS Markit promotes a culture that gives you freedom to be innovative while ensuring that you are sufficiently challenged with your day-to-day tasks. More important, IHS Markit makes me feel like an integral part of the team which is a great feeling to have when you are only a year out of college.”

“I interned at IHS Markit the summer of 2015 on the sales team. I worked closely with the Account Management team as well as the Fund Administrator team learning about the sales process and how to run client meetings. After my internship, I started full-time on Lead Generations Sales Team for 18 months before transitioning to the Fixed Income sales team, where I am today. My internship gave me the knowledge and experiences I needed to continue my progress my career in sales at IHS Markit.”

“The IHS Markit intern program is a very well structured program, which exposes you to every aspect of the department you are working in. From the start, I was enrolled on a series of different training schedules which gave me an extensive understanding of how the company is organized and the roles of senior employees. The global intern project was one of the most enjoyable experiences of the intern program, as we were given the opportunity to meet new interns and to present our idea to senior members of the company. I highly recommend the IHS Markit intern program as it has given me the experience to pursue a career in marketing, and has also led me to undertake a year in industry with the company.”
