Entry-level hiring at CNN is done through a Video Journalist position.
The Video Journalist (VJ) position, offered at the Atlanta Headquarters of the Cable News Network (CNN-US/CNN International/HLN), provides hands-on experience and training for entry-level candidates pursuing one of three career goals: technical control room, video editing, or editorial. VJs fill a variety of jobs in many departments at CNN, CNNI, HLN and CNN Media Operations. The primary duties are floor directing, teleprompting, and script distribution for live broadcasts, as well as production support for Media Operations.
Strong performers among the VJ ranks may have the opportunity to train with media coordinators, video editors, assignment editors, writers, producers, audio operators, electronic graphics operators, and master control operators. However, this is not guaranteed and is subject to individual performance and job time constraints.
Video Journalists are at will, hourly employees and are guaranteed a scheduled 40-hour workweek with the potential for overtime. Video Journalists are expected to work all major holidays, unless they fall on their scheduled off days or during designated vacation time. To compensate, newsroom employees receive four weeks of paid vacation per year, prorated from their hire date.
Promotions are based on merit and an evaluation process that may include practical and/or written assessments. A promotion is not guaranteed, but many Video Journalists move to higher positions in the newsroom within six to twelve months.
