MFA interns explore career opportunities
The 2019 group of MFA Ag Experience Apprentices started their internship May 20 with an orientation at the home office in Columbia, and they will complete their 12-week program on Aug. 9. The interns work with MFA Incorporated and its members in areas that match their career objectives. As trusted employees, the students have access to the same technology resources, events and programs that other full-time employees in similar positions do. Students are challenged to apply their classroom knowledge and previous work experience in real-world situations affecting business. To be eligible for this program, students must be pursuing a bachelor’s degree at an accredited college/university, be a full-time student in good standing with a grade point average above 2.75 and have completed their sophomore year of college. At the conclusion of the program, students give a presentation of what they learned throughout the summer to senior-level managers. Students who perform well during the program may receive an offer to return to MFA the following summer or work part-time throughout the school year.
