Agricultural Sales Intern
May 2019 - August 2019
“Through this experience, I learned more about agronomy and sales than I imagine I ever could learn in a classroom setting. The team gave me hands-on experience that was so fun, it didn't even feel like work. I loved having two pieces of training because it made me feel all the more prepared, which is something that is unique from other ag sales internships. We had a leadership/sales training at the company headquarters in Memphis during February and we had an agronomy training in Des Moines in May. I also liked going out of state for a new experience and because of the independence I gained from it. ”
“I was free to work by myself without someone looking over my back. The people are awesome to work with and I learned a lot about Agricultural. ”
