Students seeking meaningful public relations, communications or marketing internships in agriculture should consider the Illinois Corn Marketing Board fall internships recently announced. Applications are due on June 17.

For all students taking college level classes during the fall 2013 semester, the ICMB Social Media internship is an excellent opportunity to engage in promoting agriculture, learning key social media techniques, and keeping up on issues important to the industry. Students who have completed the social media internship can expect to exit the semester with a meaningful portfolio of work and a new skill set to aid in their future job search.

The social media internship consists of managing a social media application for the semester and can be done from any college or university in Illinois. Applicants do not need to reside in or near Bloomington, IL.

Students with video production skills may also wish to consider the ICMB Video Production Internship, available to students taking college level classes during the fall 2013 semester. Throughout this internship, students will be shooting, editing, and producing videos that promote agriculture and Illinois farmers through on-site investigations of why farmers do what they do. Examples of previous completed videos can be found on the IL Corn YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/ilcorn.

The video production internship can also provide much needed diversification for a video production student’s portfolio.

For more information on either of these opportunities, please visit www.ilcorn.org/education/higher-education or email Lindsay Mitchell at lmitchell@ilcorn.org.
