Internship Opportunity at the 2013 National Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show

This is an AWESOME internship opportunity that I would encourage all undergraduate and graduate students that are passionate about the beef industry to apply for! I had the opportunity to intern with NCBA during the 2012 conference and it was one of the coolest things I've ever done. The NCBA staff is wonderful to work with and you have the opportunity to learn about all different sectors of the cattle industry and what it takes to plan and put on a conference of that capacity! I met some really good friends while interning in Nashville and we have kept in touch ever is truly a once in a lifetime experience!

WHEN AND WHERE?? February 4-9, 2013 in Tampa, Florida


As an NCBA intern, you get the opportunity to network with NCBA staff, visit with industry leaders, assist with events during the conference, meet new friends from across the country, and the list goes on!

NCBA will provide the student’s convention registration, lodging and certain meals while
in Tampa. Students are responsible for their own travel to and from Tampa, along with all incidental expenses.

Comment or send me an e-mail with any questions...I would be happy to answer them!

Undergraduate internship opportunities...

It may seem early to start looking for summer internship opportunities, but now is the time that you should be on the look out. Many applications for summer internships are due as early as December so you don't want to wait! I received this information in a newsletter this week from the American Society of Animal Science. The University of Connecticut has compiled a list of companies that offer internships for undergraduate animal science students. You can visit their page at Many universities also offer internships. The University of Nebraska has a Feedlot Management internship program where interns have the opportunity to take classes while working at a feedlot.
It's always a good idea to visit with your undergraduate advisor. They might have ideas or industry connections that can be useful to you. It seems like university job fairs also surface this time of year. There are many useful outlets out there for information...never be afraid to take advantage of them!
Good Luck!
