Off-Farm Income

Applying for, receiving and working in an Internship was one of the best things I did while I was in college.  And, even though it sounds like everyone does this when you listen to my Ag College Episodes, that is not true.  Many college students allow this opportunity to pass them right by.

On today's episode I really want to encourage students to get involved in internships during the time they are in post-secondary education, whether that be trade school, community college or a four year university.  There are so many reasons that this will benefit you, including:

  • Exposure to industry
  • Determining what career you want
  • Determining what career you do not want
  • Creating a network of industry people
  • Building a resume
  • Learning things and building skills for the future and opportunities that have not even been invented yet
