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."

"My internship with CNBC.com was one of the best I've had, journalism or otherwise. At CNBC, interns have the opportunity to do so much more than just viral news or reworking press releases — editors are interested in ideas that are contrarian, analytical and forward-looking. They challenge you to think critically and reach out to real people who are affected by business issues."
"You may not think that you're qualified to write stories about markets, but the editors at CNBC are so welcoming and teach you the kinds of technical skills that set you apart from other writers. I was always intimidated by breaking news, but after a few months at CNBC I'm not afraid to jump in and raise my hand as events unfold. When I was offered a full-time job after my internship, it was a no-brainer — I know it is the kind of place where you can continue to grow and try new things every day. Now, I'm writing about technology companies, which gives me a chance to cover some of the world's most powerful people every day."
