Agricultural Sales Intern

May - August 2019 • Shelbyville, IN

What I liked

Through this experience, I learned more about agronomy and sales than I imagine I ever could learn in a classroom setting. The team gave me hands-on experience that was so fun, it didn't even feel like work. I loved having two pieces of training because it made me feel all the more prepared, which is something that is unique from other ag sales internships. We had a leadership/sales training at the company headquarters in Memphis during February and we had an agronomy training in Des Moines in May. I also liked going out of state for a new experience and because of the independence I gained from it.

What I wish was different

My only complaint was that the year of 2019 was so unique that I didn't learn as much about the usual circumstances.

Advice

Get out of your comfort zone and be confident you doing so. Don't be afraid of something you aren't familiar with–it will only create more opportunity to learn and grow.

Agricultural Chemist

May 2018 • Berne, IN

What I liked

I was free to work by myself without someone looking over my back. The people are awesome to work with and I learned a lot about Agricultural.

What I wish was different

I wish the pay would have been better but I can’t complain for a summer job.

Advice

I would say others should try it, it’s a good experience and you learn a lot. You also get to work with a good group of people.
