questions to ask during your internshipBy Danielle Tucker, 2017 AgCareers.com Marketing Intern

 

As you start your summer internship, have you thought about what to ask your supervisor? Here are five questions to ask during your internship:

 

1. Can we talk about expectations?
 
One of the most important questions to ask during your internship: make sure you understand what your supervisor and coworkers expect from you. However, don’t forget about your personal goals as well. One major point of the internship is to make sure you get the most out of it. Use the experience for personal growth. If you ask this early on, it will help everyone establish a good idea of what all the expectations are so you don’t walk away from the internship down the road with it not meeting any of your own goals.

 

2. What are some areas I can improve on?
 
There’s a good chance your employer won’t fault you on your strengths, but will probably notice your weaknesses. Ask how you can improve! By asking your supervisor this, you are showing your willingness to learn. Feedback is the best way to figure out how you are doing as an intern. Being a coachable person makes for a great intern. Willingness to listen from the experts and use their advice to better your skills will not only benefit you now, but also later in life.

danielle tucker agcareers.com internDanielle Tucker joins AgCareers.com this summer as our Marketing Intern in Ames, Iowa. She is currently a student at Iowa State University pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science and a Master’s of Business Administration.

 

What will you be working on this summer with AgCareers.com?

 

I will be working on a few large projects including creating an Ag Major Profile section for the website and putting together reports for companies about what their interns experienced. Also, I will be doing some benchmarking analysis on AgCareers.com to see how well we are serving customer needs. I will be writing articles and blogs about multiple areas in the workplace. I look forward to helping with the Roundtable as well and experiencing it for the first time!

 

What are you most excited for about this internship?

 

I’m excited to gain experience in marketing! I recently headed a new direction in school by pursuing a MBA along with my Animal Science major so this internship will allow me to explore areas within the business industry while still being involved in agriculture.

Free internAs an employee of AgCareers.com, I’d like to think that most internships nowadays are paid. In fact, of the 704 interns participating in our 2016 Internship Benchmark Survey, NONE of their internships were unpaid, and only 1% were paid between $5 and $8.99 per hour. But there are still a few organizations out there that do not offer concrete compensation to their interns year after year (in my book, being paid less than minimum wage is essentially an unpaid internship). They may have good reason for it: they may be a nonprofit or government organization, or they offer benefits such as housing that they feel covers an intern’s compensation for the summer/term. Or perhaps your “unpaid internship” are really just clinical/educational/job shadowing hours you need to complete for educational purposes.

 

If you are considering an unpaid internship, apprenticeship, co-op, or the like, you’ll want to examine the opportunity for everything’s it’s worth to determine if the experience will pay off for you one way or another. Check out the positive and negative points about unpaid internships below before making your decision. Also, be sure to know whether your internship is really paid or unpaid before you make your decision. And inquire deeply as to whether or not this internship experience has true educational value, because if not, it could be illegal.

how important are internshipsGuest Blogger: Vera Marie Reed

 

When it comes to preparing for an agriculture career, an internship will definitely help you.

 

Even the most qualified candidates will face a lot of competition for good jobs, so having an internship under your belt could be the differentiator that kicks off a long and fruitful career.

 

The U.S. edition of AgCareers.com’s 2015 Agribusiness Job Report shows that the total number of job postings in the U.S. and Canada was up 26%, to 81,000+, compared to the year prior. AgCareers.com received almost 6,800 job postings each month throughout the U.S. and Canada last year. While there are plenty of jobs, there are lots of suitable applicants vying for them.

 

Consider these statistics from the aforementioned study, for example:

 

  • 64% of AgCareers.com applicants had an education level of a bachelor’s degree or higher
  • 51% of applicants either were currently or were most recently in an agriculture-related job
  • 54% of applicants had agriculture-based post-secondary education
  • 44% of applicants had more than five years of experience

 

With all of those highly trained people either already in or on the verge of entering the agriculture industry, you can improve your odds of landing a job by doing an internship.

 

Read on for information that’ll help you answer the question: How important are internships?

perceptions of agriculture; consider agriculture internships to test drive a career in agricultureBy Shelby LaRose, AgCareers.com Ambassador for the University of Saskatchewan

 

For those individuals who are not involved in agriculture, the first thing that comes to mind when they think of agriculture is farming, ranches and animals. According to a 2013 survey conducted by AgCareers.com, 44% of the general public views agricultural careers as hard work with little pay and 39% feel that little education is needed to pursue an agricultural career.

 

We know that careers in agriculture are not only diverse but rewarding. There is more to it than just farming, ranches and animals. Just like every other industry out there, agriculture cannot run without sales and marketing staff, numerous support staff and those working in the field every single day.

 

This is a very exciting industry to be a part of. Each year, equipment manufacturers are designing new machinery to help farmers work more land, seed companies are working with better technology to increase the viability of seed and environmentalists are working to make sure the land is used in the most sustainable way. And these are not the only sectors found in agriculture. If you are a student still considering career fields, one way to explore the agricultural industry is by participating in an agriculture internship.

“A summer is only as productive or unproductive as you make it,” said Megan Grant, a sophomore at the University of Florida (UF). If you aren’t interning, as is typical for many college students during the summer, there are still many options to make your summer productive and beneficial for your future.

 

Work a summer job to save and make money while gaining work experience. Food, retail, summer camps, or any job involving customer service provides valuable skills for any career. People skills will make you stand out as a candidate. Alexandra Steele, a junior at UF, has worked different jobs each summer since high school. “I think they have been very beneficial because even though they haven’t been something that I’d want to make a career out of, these jobs have taught me life skills and good work ethic for the future,” she said. “They helped me narrow down my decisions on my career path.”

 

Take summer classes to get ahead or take some extra time to do well in a challenging course. For students in the STEM field, this is a great option in the summer to focus on courses that would be tougher to balance in the fall or spring. Summer school also allows students to remain active in school organizations and help recruit incoming freshman. Haley Shavemaker, a sophomore at UF, said that she is ahead of schedule with her courses. She can now have a lighter course load for the fall and spring semesters and pursue and enjoy more college activities.

A mother lets go of her toddler as it takes the first steps into the world by itself, but remains close by to supervise. An employer lets go of the intern’s hand as they take their first steps into the “grown up world” and begin the journey of the career and professional life.
 
As an intern, we are all toddlers taking our first steps by ourselves. We are still needing our parents (mentor) to teach and give us the tools and skills to become a successful experienced professional but to provide those from afar in a supervisory role.
 
Internships are the exciting, dreaded professional development rite of passage every college student and young professional seeks to experience before starting their career. For many interns, it is a time where you get your first taste of the “grown up world” and a chance develop professionally.
