2011 Ag Finance Interns

The 2011 FCS Financial internship program kicked off on May 16 and ended on August 5. The 12-week program exposes the interns to the association and the Farm Credit System. Interns spend two weeks at Central Office where they work with several departments including credit, loan documentation and risk management. Their remaining time focuses on learning the day-to-day tasks of the field staff in various retail facilities. The interns finish off the summer working in a field of interest to them.
