Burnett’s first ever job was at Goldman Sachs as the financial analyst. She worked in corporate finance and acquisitions and mergers in the investment banking division of the company.

Burnett left Goldman Sachs when she was offered a job by CNN in 1999. In CNN, she worked as a booker and writer for the show ‘Moneyline.’ Erin worked with Lou Dobbs, Stuart Varney, and Willow Bay. Erin quit CNN and joined as vice president of CitiMedia, which is a digital media group of Citigroup. Next, Erin joined Bloomberg Television and served the company as an anchor and stocks editor.

In 2005, Erin started hosting the ‘Street Signs’ and co-anchoring the show ‘Squawk on the Street’ along with Mark Haines. Both the show aired on CNBC. Erin worked on three documentaries named ‘City Money & Mystery,’ ‘India Rising: The new Empire’ and ‘The Russian Gamble’ in the year 2008. A year later in 2009, she worked on the documentary ‘Dollar & Danger: Africa, The Final Investment Frontier.’

In August 2009, while discussing a report about the plan of Minister Kevin Rudd, the Australian Prime to spend a huge amount of money on aerial shooting to reduce the population of the Australian feral camels, Erin used the term “serial killer.” The comment stirred up a controversy and the next day Erin announced on the show that her previous comments were nothing but a joke. Erin did an investigation on the company ‘Transammonia,’ which deals with chemicals.

Soon after the release of the report, on December 13, 2010, ‘Transammonia’ released a press release affirming that the Swiss subsidiary of ‘Transammonia’ would not enter into any new contracts with the Iranian companies and also would finish all their existing business with Iran “as soon as possible.” Erin’s excellent work on this investigative report earned her a nomination for an Emmy, the next year.

Erin also worked on two documentaries, ‘Big Money in the Middle East’ and ‘On Assignment: Iraq’ in the year 2010. Erin left CNBC, after working for five years with them in May 2011 and joined their rival network CNN in October 2011. Erin started hosting ‘Erin Burnett OutFront’ her own show for CNN.

Erin again faced a controversy when she mocked the protesters of the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protest, on air, in October 2011. She was heavily criticised for this by journalist Glenn Greenwald in an article written for ‘Salon.’ Greenwald wrote in the article that Erin’s reporting was biased as she had worked on Wall Street. In response to this article, CNN made a statement in support of Erin saying “We support Erin and the OutFront team and we respect that there will be a range of opinions on any given story.”

In 2014, Erin acted in a film called ‘Edge of Tomorrow.’ Presently she is hosting ‘Erin Burnett OutFront, ’ and along with that she is a member of the ‘Council on Foreign Relations.’
