GROWMARK Announces 2022 Summer Interns
Pennsylvania Ag Connection - 05/18/2022

After two years of offering a hybrid program, the GROWMARK/FS System is pleased to welcome its newest class of interns back in-person for the complete immersive experience. Seventy-four interns were selected during a rigorous application process and are now working hands-on at GROWMARK and FS-company locations across North America.

"We are excited to be back to fully in-person with our internships this spring and summer. Our interns' experiences in their day-to-day jobs is the most important piece of the programs. We want to give the students the opportunity to experience the inner workings of an agri-business and help them determine if this career path is right for them. said Kayla Tobias, GROWMARK senior manager of talent acquisition and member employment. "Students will be able to engage with industry professionals in-person on important projects and have the opportunity to clarify career goals, while we get exposed to some of the most talented students. These programs continue to be a key component in identifying and retaining top talent for the System."

There are two tracks: the GROWMARK Interns are exposed to accounting, marketing, and product and service-related activities. Each intern will complete a business-related project and deliver a presentation on their project at the conclusion of their internships.

Interns in the Exploring Agriculture program will be focused on operations, equipment & technology for scouting, assisting with facility and equipment maintenance & repair, and building professional relationships with FS locations and customers while learning the different products and services the GROWMARK System provides.
