It’s the time of year when tax staff across Farm Credit East are working extra-hard to help our customers wade through the complexity of farm income taxation. Before the craziness of income tax season set in, Jean Gallagher spent some time chatting with Nick Norton, a Tax Specialist in our Presque Isle, ME, branch office about his career with Farm Credit East so far.
Bringing together nearly 1,600 customers within three weeks is no small feat, but our annual Customer Appreciation meetings are important to Farm Credit East’s mission and grassroots foundation. If you weren’t able to attend this year, here’s a review of the highlights.
This summer, Farm Credit East welcomed 16 interns to the team. Our interns always leave a lasting impact through the meaningful work they complete and relationships they build with fellow staff and customers. With summer coming to a close and internships winding down, Jean Gallagher asked three interns to reflect on their summer experience.
Farm Credit East offers a 12-week, paid summer internship program where students can learn about our company and gain insight into the type of career they’d like to pursue. We recently interviewed some Farm Credit East employees who began their Farm Credit career as an intern to find out what they enjoyed most about their experience and what led them to choose us to begin their career. Here’s what they had to say.
