'Apprentice' contestant joins CNBC
"Rebecca has shown herself to be an intelligent, poised, inquisitive individual with a keen interest in business reporting," said CNBC's senior vice president of business news David Friend. "She achieved a great deal at a young age and impressed everyone here. Her background as an investment banker and currency trader has provided her with the insights that will give her depth as a business reporter."
Jarvis will be based at CNBC headquarters in New Jersey. There, she will "work with every department at CNBC, including the assignment desk, video editing and graphic art, as well as accompany CNBC reporters in the field, and develop and report her own stories," according to a CNBC press release.
The CNBC job isn't the first TV gig for Jarvis; the investment banker appeared on a local TV station in Minneapolis in her teens as a reporter for a weekly teen show.
