CNBC.com is offering an immersive writing and editing internship on the digital breaking-news desk. Interns will edit and produce news stories from wires, CNBC reporters and partners. Interns will write quick flips as well as original stories throughout the semester. We're looking for highly motivated students who love the fast pace of a newsroom and have a serious interest in business news and online journalism. Interns must have strong writing, editing, research and organizational skills. Journalism experience such as working with a college newspaper, website or blog is preferred.
"From the moment I interviewed at CNBC Digital for an editorial internship in my senior year of college, I saw that this was a place where I could grow, while being at the forefront of journalism's development. CNBC did not disappoint. One internship semester turned into two, and then a full-time job after graduation.
Since then, the opportunities at CNBC have only continued to evolve. I've been able to develop different reporting beats and use some of Wall Street's top analytics tools. The learning curve does only get steeper here, but that means the growing never stops."

"I wouldn't be where I am now if it weren't for my internship with CNBC.com. What I learned during the semester was invaluable to my career. Getting the opportunity to work with some of the best (and kindest) editors taught me lessons I never learned in the classroom.
From the beginning, I was treated like every other person on the staff – not just an intern. I was given important assignments and had the opportunity to write on topics I enjoyed. The guidance I received along the way helped me grow as a journalist.
The positive experiences made it obvious to me that CNBC was where I wanted to start my career after graduation. The connections I made and the knowledge I gained from the program helped me receive a position as a digital news associate."
