Productive and innovating workplace surrounded by intelligent and motivating coworkers
CNBC Assignment News Desk Intern (Former Employee) – Englewood Cliffs, NJ – March 20, 2017
My job was different everyday which is why I fell in love with the business news industry. One day I would be at the NASDAQ, NYSE, or on a field shoot with top producers. I would see what production looked like behind the scenes and how business news was put together. I learned a lot about the importance of team work and a positive attitude in the workplace. I had a lot of autonomy and management made sure we always had something to do. The work culture was warm and engaging at all times. During lunch we would play at the ping pong table and then get ready to log an interview, go on a field shoot, or finish writing an article for CNBC.com. Some shoots were challenging, for example, I went to the Sports Illustrated Red Carpet Event for the Sports Person of the Year. I was the only producer/reporter there and I had to interview Serena Williams and Jack Nicklaus. It was overwhelming, but exciting at the same time.
Numerous of opportunities for informational interviews
