Summer Workshops with CNBC!
For a second year, CNBC is thrilled to be hosting a free educational workshop focused on business journalism at the Excellence in Journalism 2017 Conference. This invitation-only workshop is geared toward graduating seniors and recent graduates who are planning to attend one of the 2017 Conventions. Interested candidates must apply to be invited to attend the workshop.
By applying to attend this workshop, applicants are also applying for a position as a CNBC Business News Associate. After the workshop, some participants who have a bachelor’s degree may be selected for an opportunity to interview at CNBC Global Headquarters for a job as a CNBC Business News Associate.
The Business News Associate Workshop will feature:
· A panel of seasoned CNBC professionals describing their roles at the network and sharing how CNBC’s guiding principles and best practices influence their work as business journalists
· An interactive breaking news simulation designed to teach the concepts, skills, and techniques CNBC professionals utilize daily to break down complex information about business, markets, and the economy
· Individual interviews with CNBC professionals
