An internship at CNBC can be described with three words: engaging, exciting, and, at times, challenging. This is, in my opinion, the definition of a great internship program. At CNBC, you make the most out of your time, and while I was interning here, I was a front-end engineer for their website. From the first moment that I was introduced to my team, I knew that if I gave my best effort, I would be rewarded with an unforgettable experience.

I've since had the opportunity to work on many projects ranging from creating newsletters to redesigning their markets and quotes page (some of their most frequented pages on the site). Along the way, there have been challenges. But I can say this for certain, everyone here wants to see you grow and succeed, all you have to do is ask for help. What I can say for sure is, I now know what it takes to launch software on an enterprise scale from understanding the development cycles work as well as collaborating with different teams in order to produce a product that our users want to use.

CNBC has created a program that is truly exceptional for college students looking for real-world experience in all aspects of media. You will walk out knowing so much more about your field of work. Last but not least, everyone at CNBC really treats each other like family, and that's what has really made my time here so memorable.
