I once sat at the press scrum with Neel Kashkari, president of the Minneapolis Fed, during a morning breakfast. It was just myself, a handful of other journalists, and I was wired on caffeine after a night of research when it hit me: There is no other CNBC reporter, just myself and the camera operator. I'm the one who has to ask him questions!
I'm the CNBC reporter.
It's that "wow" moment when you realize you're more than just an intern – you're an equal with the same access as the best reporters in financial journalism, and all of CNBC is counting on you to get that quote or find that story.
Here's the kicker: It's just another day as an intern at the Assignment Desk with Ryan Ruggiero. The desk constantly sends interns into the field, and that's always where you learn the most: how to take accurate notes, ask the right questions, find court documents (hint: just ask!), and learning how to interview the sharpest people in business and government from the very best journalists in the field.
But working with JeeYeon Park at the editorial desk at CNBC.com — this is where I learned to write. I put together statistics-heavy stories on the best times to travel and wrote about market-moving stocks in the news. But more importantly, it was at CNBC.com where I could explore the topics that mattered to me: business, technology, strategy ... and video games.
Interning at CNBC.com gave me the freedom to pursue enterprise stories — those hard-to-find gems of news that you can help blossom into full-length stories. It's challenging and demanding, with the clock always ticking — but there's no better feeling than seeing your bylines next to the Peacock on the CNBC website.
Interning at both divisions in CNBC as a graduate student at New York University also meant being able to bring real-world experience into the classroom every day. CNBC taught me the basics of how to cut video, how a script works, and the best way to frame a shot. It taught me the basics of interviewing, writing quickly and getting a story published. And what I learned from the classroom, I immediately brought back into work, letting me tackle larger and more complex projects.
The one constant in all of this is the culture of CNBC. There's always a helping hand whenever you need it. It shows how much CNBC invests in every employee — and how much they expect from you, even as an intern. It's not a desk job. What you do here matters, and you can see the results in a visceral way. By the end of my internship, I could pull together multipart online series that included my photos, my videos ... and of course my writing.
That's what's different about this internship. You're not shoved into the
