What to Expect

Each summer, Farm Credit Services of Mid-America provides a unique internship opportunity for college sophomores and juniors above and beyond a summer job. Farm Credit encourages interns to evaluate our company as a potential employer and we in turn view this as a 10-week job interview, as many interns return as full-time employees.

Summer interns are placed in a field office close to their college residence or hometown, and paired with a Financial Services Officer who will serve as a mentor. The Financial Services Officer role is a competitive, goal-oriented sales and marketing position. A Financial Services Officer’s responsibilities are not only to sell and market financial products to potential and existing customers, but to build relationships with these clients and meet their financial needs. Also, a successful FSO maintains a positive presence in the rural areas he or she serves by becoming involved in community organizations and events.

An intern has the opportunity to observe this role first hand through numerous job shadowing opportunities such as sales calls, loan closings in and out of the office, customer appreciation events, and other networking events. Interns are also encouraged to job-shadow other departments in our organization such as marketing, credit, and appraisal.

In the spotlight

A marketing project is also assigned which will be presented to area leaders and our CEO nearing the end of the internship. Projects in the past have included: competitive analysis of local banks, evaluation of market penetration, research on crop insurance providers, and marketing plans for specific products or programs. A detailed development guide is provided which outlines the assigned project and available resources.

There’s More…
The internship program is kicked-off every year with a group dinner and orientation at our central office in Louisville, Kentucky so interns can get to know their teammates and have an introduction to Farm Credit Services of Mid America.

Furthermore, interns are taken on a two-day team building outing in July where they experience unique agribusinesses and operations in our four-state region. FCS interns have toured Beck’s Hybrids in Anderson, Indiana, the Kentucky bluegrass region, and Mayfield Dairy in southeast Tennessee followed by white water rafting!

Benefits

Interns are provided with:
Laptop
$15/hour salary

JOB DESCRIPTION

 

Performance Services is looking to hire an intern who either needs an internship to graduate or someone who has graduated already who is looking to work about 30 hours per week here in our Indy office.  This would be a temporary job, as our hope is that our intern could turn this experience into full-time work somewhere.  Our most recent intern just got hired by Fox News in selling on-line advertising and they told him that his internship here, and the responsibilities he had, helped him get that job in Chicago.

 

Our interns in the past have been very supportive of our business development efforts.  So, they would engage in developing renewal energy/wind proposals, assisting in sales targeting, creating marketing collateral, developing a marketing budget, identifying legislation that we need to know about, creating competitive tactics and working to find a way to increase our web traffic.  

 

Also, we move quickly here so priorities change in this size business.  We need someone who is adaptable, articulate, has great computer skills and is focused on growth.

 

If you know of anyone that fits that bill or is interested, please have them contact me directly.  They can learn more about us through our web site, www.performanceservices.com. Thanks.

Florida Crystal Corporation

Position: Internship

#1 Role Description: The intern will be exposed to Farm, Factory, Refinery and Packaging Operations and Management. In Florida

Crystals we believe that the operational approach to management training is most suitable when trainees see and practice what

managers do. To be successful, the manager has four functions to fulfill: PLAN, ORGANISE, MOTIVATE AND CONTROL. Most

important, he most do all four if anyone is to succeed.

#2 The Specific Tasks:

Planning is choosing a course of action from alternative courses of actions

Organizing is learning that people will work together most effectively if they know the contribution they need to

make to the operation and how their contribution relates to others.

Motivation is learning a skill that enables the manager to get his employees to do what he wants them to do,

continuously and enthusiastically.

Control is a management function of making sure that plans will succeed.

#3 Specific Goals: The chief problem of the sugar industry remains that of lowering cost of production of a high quality raw material.

An intern will meet the following challenges:

Performance of sugarcane varieties on different growing conditions and in processing.

Cultural aspects of sugarcane: land preparation, mechanical tillage, weed and disease control, distinction between

“mill cane” and “seed cane”.

Sugarcane nutrition: The question of optimum requirement of nutrients in the form of organic and synthetic

fertilizers attracts considerable attention.

Irrigation & Drainage: Level ditch system of irrigation is largely the one used in Florida. An intern will become

acquainted with a system unique and possible because of the fairly flat slope of the land.

Chemical ripening off the crop. The intern will learn about chemical formulations, air & timing of applications.

Farm Safety: An intern will learn that working in the sugarcane industry can be a hazardous occupation. There are

many common type of accidents caused by tractors, other vehicles, water, electricity, shops, material handling.

He/she will become aware that accident effects can be very long lasting.

Harvesting & Transport: mechanical harvesters have simplified harvesting procedure but it has its unique problems.

Sugar Milling: The intern will learn how a mill tandem crushes and washes the juice from the cane. This is followed

by a series of operations, in which it separates as much as possible of the sucrose from the water, impurities, fiber

and dirt that make up the balance of the cane juice.

Laboratory & Quality Control: The intern will be exposed to the significance and meaning of polarization (Pol),

moisture, ash, color, filterability, dextran, grain size, and starch in sugar. This is important because customers firstly

inquire about price and what grade of sugar will be supplied.

#4 Knowledge, Techniques to be learned: The answer to this is already implicated in step # 3

#5 Methods of performance evaluation: I suggest to evaluate the intern based on the following performance reviews:

Attitude and approach to work

Attendance to work

Dedication to work

General job skills

Interpersonal skills

Judgment

Learning skills

Potential management skills

Organizing skills

Potential for advancement

We would like a student willing to work 8-10 hours a week not always guaranteed and one who

will be willing to work through the summer. Mostly morning hours (sometimes before 8:00) but

with swine including positive reinforcement training. As well as they should have the ability to

dose oral compounds for studies.

Someone is needed who will be willing to work independently and confident enough to take on a

slight leadership role towards the end of summer/beginning of next semester in the absence of

the supervisor. This individual should be able to direct the person who will be running studies in

my absence.

around for specific tasks.

Friends of Fred Stout Experience Committee

The Friends of Fred Stout Experience Committee would like to make you aware of 2 unique

summer experiences available for those interested in working Jersey cattle.

The link below will provide more details.

http://www.usjersey.com/YouthProgram/stoutexperience.htm

The Jersey breed is rapidly growing in popularity for their efficiencies and profitability. One

experience is available to work with the marketing/merchandising of Jersey cows and the other is

an on farm experience at a host herd the winner will be matched with (the potential host herd list

ranges in herd size and location with some even specializing in on farm processing).

As a past on farm experience winner, I can tell you that the opportunity to learn by doing proved

to be extremely valuable to my career in the dairy industry. The recipient does not have to have

previous Jersey specific experiences, but does need to exhibit interest in learning more about the

breed.

Please feel free to email or phone with additional questions or comments.
