Bloomington - The GROWMARK/FS System welcomes 85 interns from across North America into its storied internship program. GROWMARK made it a point to continue its internship program last year through the pandemic by adapting to a virtual format with socially distant hands-on experience in the field. This year, GROWMARK is building upon that hybrid model with even more opportunities for its interns.

"We found the hybrid model helps our interns by bringing together the whole class on a more regular and efficient basis, especially since they are working at GROWMARK retail and subsidiaries and FS member cooperatives throughout North America," said Kayla Tobias, GROWMARK Member & Student Recruiting Manager. "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 sales, 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, all while building professional relationships with FS locations and customers while learning the different products and services the GROWMARK System provides.

Interns in the Exploring Agriculture program will be focused on agronomy, energy and grain operations, equipment & technology for crop 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.
