Agtegra Interns will complete a project related to their field of study. Managers work with the intern to find a project that will benefit the company and help the intern learn. For example, a project may concentrate on the nutrient requirement variations in corn, while other projects can include working with vendor accounts to receive outstanding credits or assisting with yield estimates.
IMPORTANT INTERNSHIP EVENTS
Agtegra Cooperative offers a true internship program with multiple events for all interns to attend. Agtegra interns dive in and experience an exciting hands-on summer immersed in real world career activities. Following are the Internship Events:
Jump start your internship experience in May at our internship kick-off. Here, you’ll identify your internship goals, network with the management team, receive training, and meet all the other interns. You will also have the opportunity to meet the Agtegra leadership team and ask them any questions you may have.
Agtegra Cooperative proudly operates in 50 communities and is committed to making a different in these areas. On Volunteer Day, interns come together for a day of volunteering to gain a different perspective - one of service, purpose, and community.
Agronomy Day allows Agtegra First interns the chance to learn from our agronomy experts and discover more about the agronomy field, regardless of their internship field of interest. Past topics covered during the day have included MZB, drones, FieldReveal and weed identification.
As the season ends and your internship nears completion, join us for the Intern Wrap-up in August. This is your chance to make a lasting impression! Share your achievements and key learnings from your internship experience with Agtegra Cooperative’s Management and Leadership Team.
The Agtegra internship program is like no other. They are more than willing to let you try anything you want while providing learning opportunities that teach you necessary life skills. The sense of community that the Agtegra employees create is something that I feel is unique to this cooperative. Everyone strives to make sure you leave this internship experience more knowledgeable then when you started.
Respectful. Robust. Relevant. Everyone at Agtegra has gone out of their way to treat us interns with respect. I’ve had access to a range of opportunities and assignments. Everything I’m learning is relevant to my technical growth, relationship-building, or life skill development.
Working at Agtegra has provided me with opportunities to continue my education while gaining hands-on experiences. I really enjoy learning from the many different areas Agtegra has to offer. During my time here, I have been fortunate to have people around me that want to see me succeed and are quick to answer any questions I have.
My internship with Agtegra has allowed me to grow and learn in the field of grain marketing. Agtegra has molded the internship towards what I was interested in, while allowing me to have many different experiences. They never said no when I asked to do something, like sitting in on a meeting to shadowing an employee who worked at a different location. Agtegra does a great job teaching its interns, from taking notes in the conference room to learning through real-life experiences. The people here welcome any questions, which I truly appreciate. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to experience this internship. I know it will help me out in the future.
