Certified Angus Beef ® brand 2020-’21 Internships – Producer Communications: Closes Dec. 1, 2019
The Certified Angus Beef ® (CAB®) brand is looking for students interested in the cattle industry and communications who want to gain experience with the world’s leading branded beef program. CAB’s year-round internship program develops the writing skills, storytelling talent and beef industry knowledge of its interns.
Tell the Certified Angus Beef brand story to stakeholders across the beef supply chain through news writing, photography, social media content and video scripts. Interns will be responsible for projects that help increase farmer/rancher brand awareness and inspire commitment to producing cattle that fit the world’s leading beef brand. Interns must be self-starters, highly accountable with a strong desire to write. Work may be completed from a remote location or the CAB headquarters in Wooster, Ohio. Some travel is required; school-term internships work with the intern’s class schedule. Prior to the internship, all selected interns will travel to Ohio for training at the 2020 Youth Beef Leaders Seminar, slated for January 6 to 8, 2020. Other training will be in the field or via phone and frequent email.
Past interns have had a variety of career goals that require effective writing. This position offers valuable experience whether your target is print journalism, public relations or advertising copy writing. This internship is not a good opportunity for graphic design or consumer focused-communications experience.
Length of Employment:
The internship is available year-round to last one semester or summer. The fall and spring internship offers part-time employment equivalent to 10 hours a week during the academic year. The summer internship is a full-time position equivalent to 40 hours a week. Summer interns will work from home or the corporate office in Wooster, Ohio.
Specific dates of the school-year internship will be determined to coincide with the academic year. The FALL internship may be offered as renewable, continuing through SPRING after the semester break. Depending on the applicants, a separate spring internship may be offered. SUMMER terms cover a 10- to 12-week period from as early as mid-May to mid-August. The internship is often eligible for credit, and enrollment is encouraged. Regardless of whether it is taken for credit, the intern will be accountable for performance.
