Sign Up Now to Host an AAEA 2022 Summer Intern!

The AAEA Future Ag Communicators Committee is looking for editorial and marketing companies to host an AAEA intern next summer!

The AAEA Professional Improvement Foundation, PIF, provides annual internships to qualified students. Through PIF grants and support from industry leaders, agricultural communications students have the opportunity to gain real-world experience through a summer editorial or marketing internship.

Just ask AAEA 2021 Intern Baylee Hogan. "I believe I flourished as an intern because of the mentoring I received at broadhead marketing agency. I loved working in the public relations department. My supervisor gave me projects that took me out of my comfort zone, and broadened my horizons," she explained.

Host companies benefit too through brand promotion and having a front row seat as that aspiring ag communicator develops and hones their skills thanks to the guidance, expertise, and mentoring your organization provides.

Don't miss an opportunity to make a difference!

2019 Intern Reflections

Loren Lindler, 2019 AAEA intern with DTN/The Progressive Farmer

Loren Lindler, Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College

"I had the opportunity to work with a diverse team and learn from some of the best ag journalists in the game. DTN/Progressive Farmer has so much to offer, from weather to ag policy, I feel that I truly earned a taste of all aspects of ag journalism."

Read about Loren's experience.

"I knew that this internship would push me out of my comfort zone and it did just that, as well as helping me to grow my communication skills. I mainly worked with the account service team but was lucky to get to work with the creative team as well, especially on the agency’s social media.

This experience allowed me to watch many amazing people work through many different challenges. This gave me insight into what questions to ask my future employer to make sure the company is the right fit for me."
