Educating the public about agriculture is important to Farm Credit East. Knowledgeable consumers who support agriculture are essential for the long-term strength of the Northeast agricultural, forest products and commercial fishing industries. At the same time, educating youth about agriculture is important to developing the next generation of ag business operators as well as future consumers.
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.
