NCBA offers internship opportunity at cattle industry trade show

Published:

For many college students, gaining industry experience can be the most rewarding portion that comes with following their passion while also preparing them for their career. A fun, rewarding, and engaging opportunity is available for college students wanting to attend the 2021 Cattle Industry Convention and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Trade Show in Nashville, Tennessee, from Aug. 10 to 13, 2021.

A team of interns — vital to the success of the largest annual meeting in the U.S. beef cattle industry — will gain first-hand experience and be able to interact with leaders of every segment of the cattle and beef industry. This is a great opportunity to receive industry experience, participate in an industry event, and make connections with other professionals in the industry. 

Up to 18 interns will be selected for this opportunity. They will be assigned to help many different staff members and attendees with meetings and events and should be prepared to handle a wide range of responsibilities, from setting up the indoor arena, assisting at committee meetings and Cattlemen’s College to posting on social media and contributing in the NCBA booth. NCBA will strive to provide students time to maximize industry networking.

Students must be able to work Aug. 8 to 13 in Nashville. They must be at least a junior-level college student at an accredited university at the time of the industry meeting. Preferably they will have a background in, or working knowledge of, the cattle and/or beef industry, and must have a minimum 3.0 GPA. Students should be well-versed in all areas of social media.

Interested students must complete a Student Internship Application and send college transcripts, two letters of recommendation and a resume. For those interested in this opportunity, the deadline for applying is April 15, 2021.
