NILE Offers 2014 Internships
The Northern International Livestock Exposition (NILE) is now taking applications for participants in the 2014 NILE Internship Program. The Internship program provides the opportunity to gain training and work experience in the livestock and equine industries as well as events based business through The NILE Stock Show and Rodeo, a non-profit organization.
During the program duration, interns will have the opportunity to assist in all aspects of event planning and execution for The NILE Stock Show and Rodeo.
“Being an intern with NILE helped me grow as a person and potential employee in the livestock industry, says Tierra Kessler, a 2013 NILE Intern. “I learned a lot about running a stock show and working on a team to put on an event. It gave me a greater appreciation for the staff of every show I’ve ever been to, because I learned just how much work it is to run these events.”
The NILE will select multiple college students to serve as 2014 interns. Interns will be hired in the areas of Competitive Event Internship-Livestock Emphasis, Competitive Events Internship-Equine Emphasis, Rodeo Relations and Media Relations. The Media Relations position is new for 2014, centered on marketing and promoting the NILE through various media outlets.
Interns will have the opportunity to earn financial scholarships through the NILE Foundation. Scholarships will be awarded to interns upon successful completion of the internship.
Any college aged student who is a sophomore, junior or senior is eligible to apply with preference given to those with an agricultural degree program or background.
All applications must be in the NILE Office by September 5, 2014 and interns will be announced shortly thereafter. An application is available online at http://www.thenile.org or by calling the NILE office at 406-256-2495.
