CNBC WORKSHOP AT #AAJA17
Connect. Cultivate. Capitalize.
Companies, markets, the economy, and politics are all interconnected and have tremendous influence on people’s lives and money. Business news relies on real-time data analysis and clear communication to decode and define a story’s immediate and future impact on business and society.
This summer, CNBC is hosting an invitation-only workshop at the 2017 AAJA National Convention designed to educate aspiring journalists about the fundamental values of world-class business journalism and demonstrate the underlying strategies that define and differentiate CNBC in the marketplace.
By participating in this workshop, you’ll prepare yourself for new opportunities to jumpstart your journalism career and connect with CNBC.
Some workshop attendees who have a bachelor’s degree may be selected at the end of the workshop for a chance to interview at CNBC Global Headquarters for the CNBC Business News Associate Program. The workshop will take place Friday, July 28.
