Job Description
CNBC is looking for the next generation of multimedia journalists!
Our Digital Rotational Program is a postgraduate opportunity designed to provide participants with exposure to a wide range of experiences, ongoing mentorship and targeted training within the fast-paced world of digital news.

After four, four-month rotations within our newsroom, team members will graduate from the program with the chance to apply for exciting internal roles and will be equipped with the knowledge and tools to thrive in today's digital space. The program will begin July of 2022.

Responsibilities may include, but are not limited to:
• Pitching both breaking news and enterprise content for CNBC.com and/or CNBC Make It;
• Developing sources and building your network to land the next big scoop in business news;
• Conceptualizing and producing videos, including scripting, shooting and editing original content;
• Using all major social platforms to create and publish sharable multimedia stories.

Exciting roles are available within the following areas:

Breaking News
CNBC Digital delivers fast, accurate breaking news for a wide range of industries, including markets, economy, technology, and consumer business. The breaking news desk moves quickly to make sure readers are quickly informed of all the news they need in order to make smart decisions. The breaking news team coordinates with the newsroom at large to make sure the website is comprehensively covering the news of the day.

Digital Video
Our digital video team is responsible for the development, production and delivery of original video content across multiple platforms. This includes day-of stories, features, premium content and video series and franchises. Video producers touch all aspects of video creation - from conception, pitching ideas, writing scripts, shooting and editing.

Social Media
Our creative social media team creates shareable multimedia stories and uses all major social platforms to publish and distribute this original content. They track social media trends and use this information to develop and execute our social editorial strategies.

Enterprise Reporting
CNBC's enterprise reporters work hard to own the beats that matter most to finance and business readers. Each reporting group works closely with a section editor to delve deeply into their beats, chase down scoops and push the news forward.
