Calling Future Cattle Producers: Making the 2019 Cattle Industry Convention Pay Off

Convention InternshipsA fun, rewarding and engaging opportunity awaits college students wanting to attend the 2019 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show in New Orleans, La., Jan. 30 to Feb. 1, 2019. A team of 18 interns – who are 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. They will also be provided with a one-year NCBA student membership.

Eighteen interns will be selected for this opportunity, which is non-paid but provides lodging and meals. They will be assigned to help many different staff members with meetings and events, and should be prepared to handle a wide range of responsibilities, from setting up sessions and distributing handouts, managing the indoor arena, staffing committee meetings to posting on social media. NCBA will strive to provide students time to maximize industry networking.

Students must be able to work Jan. 27 – Feb. 1, 2019 in New Orleans. They must be at least a junior-level college student at an accredited university at the time of application. 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. Deadline for applying is Oct. 10, 2018.
