CNBC Seeks Participants for Business Reporting Workshop at Convention

CNBC is thrilled to be hosting an educational workshop focused on business reporting on July 20 at the NAHJ 2018 International Training Conference and Career Fair. This invitation-only workshop is geared toward current on-air reporters and multimedia journalists who are planning to attend the NAHJ 2018 International Training Conference and Career Fair in Miami, FL. Interested candidates must apply to be invited to attend the workshop.
 
The Business Reporting Workshop will feature:
 
  • An interactive session designed to teach journalists how to quickly uncover, identify, and critically assess the most impactful information in a financial news story, then clearly deliver that story on camera for a sophisticated audience
  • Conversations with CNBC professionals to identify the most effective tools to improve storytelling
Participants in the workshop could have the opportunity to further engage with CNBC. After the workshop, some participant may be selected to visit CNBC headquarters for a camera test and interviews with members of CNBC’s executive team.
 
To request an application to this free workshop, interested applicants should send their resume and contact info to bizreportingworkshop@cnbc.com. Completed applications must be submitted to CNBC via email no later than 11:59pm PT on June 15, 2018.
 
CNBC will have the sole discretion on the selection process. Due to the high volume of resumes we receive, we regret that we will only be able to respond to those in whom we have interest. Please note that each applicant’s convention registration is subject to verification. Applicants are responsible for their registration and travel costs to the NAHJ 2018 International Training Conference and Career Fair. Applicants must possess all of the basic qualifications and eligibility requirements.

Want to join or renew your NAHJ membership? Here’s how!

How_to_become_a_member_of_NAHJ

Perhaps you joined the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) as a student decades ago and your membership lapsed.

Perhaps you finally realized all of the great benefits an NAHJ membership affords and you felt it was the right time to join.

Regardless of the reason, your membership in NAHJ will help the organization show the strength in our numbers — not just in the number of Latinos in newsrooms, but in the allies that want to see more diverse faces and stories at media companies across the country.

Joining or renewing is easy: Log-on to NAHJ.org and under the membership tab choose Join/Renew. If you’re renewing, sign-in (if you forgot your password that’s okay!). If not create a new account to become a member!

The cost of a membership is reasonable too: Only $35 for a regular membership and $25 for a student.

If you are in the Bay Area, which if you are reading this post you probably are, then don’t forget to affiliate with our chapter. The national office keeps 70 percent of the cost of the dues, and the chapter receives 30 percent. If you don’t affiliate, the Bay Area chapter doesn’t get your portion of the dues and every bit helps us with programming!

Thanks again for becoming a member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists. Remember that NAHJ is a 501(c)(3) organization and your membership is tax-deductible.
