The Illinois Corn Marketing Board is currently accepting applications for fall 2016 internships. This is part of our effort to provide meaningful agricultural experiences to college students and encourage investment in the industry, as well as utilize college students to boost the image of the Illinois farmer.
Applications for fall 2016 social media internships are due on May 2 and can be found at http://www.ilcorn.org/education/higher-education with interviews being held in Bloomington, IL on May 10-12, 2016.
Social media interns with the Illinois Corn Marketing Board are encouraged to promote agriculture via various social media outlets. Each intern receives an application to focus on (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest or Instagram) and generates a fan base and content for their application to promote the work of corn farmers and the image of agriculture.
Social media interns are compensated for their semester of work, but the experience should also be viewed as an online portfolio of work to be included on a resume or during a job interview. Interns can expect to learn more about their social media application as well as techniques for building readership and interactions with fans/followers.
