College juniors and above may now submit applications for internships at the 2016 Cattle Industry Convention and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Trade Show. The internship is for those interested in being part of the cattle industry’s largest event, with a passion for cattle and agriculture. Interns must have minimum 3.0 GPA and be able to travel to San Diego from January 25-30. NCBA President, Philip Ellis, lauds this opportunity as a chance to gain first-hand knowledge and network with leaders from the many areas of the industry.
“Convention interns will benefit from a behind the scenes look at the cattle industry’s most prestigious event,” said Ellis. “The skills they are able to take from their experience and the contacts they make during this internship will last a lifetime.”
Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show interns are vital to the success of the event and a valued member of the team. Student interns will help many different NCBA staff members with a variety of meetings and events. Students should be prepared for a wide range of responsibilities from overseeing committee sign-in to working closely with the NCBA Political Action Committee and Cattlemen to Cattlemen television program.
“In addition to working with leaders in the cattle industry, the convention internship gives student the opportunity to meet and work with other young people from across the country,” said Ellis. “I would strongly recommend anyone who is interested to apply for this one-of-a-kind opportunity.”
