Cuban Offered Kwame a Job After Show

4/16/2004 7:48 AM Eastern

Just hours after being fired by Donald Trump live on national television, Kwame Jackson was offered a job to work for another billionaire: HDNet founder and president Mark Cuban.

Jackson, the runner-up on hit NBC show The Apprentice, said the offer came at his personal afterparty Thursday night. Cuban, he added, waited two hours for him to arrive.

Appearing on CNBC Friday afternoon, Jackson -- a Harvard MBA who quit The Goldman Sachs Group Inc. to make a run for a job with Trump -- said Cuban asked him to consider running a few investment portfolios.
