The National Cattlemen's Beef Association is accepting applications for a fall 2013 public policy internship at the organization's government affairs office in Washington, D.C.
The deadline to submit an application for internship is July 8, 2013. The full-time internship will begin Sept. 9, 2013, and end Dec. 13, 2013.
College students with an interest in the beef industry, public policy and communications are the ideal target for the internship opportunity. Responsibilities will include helping NCBA represent cattlemen and cattlewomen with the NCBA lobbying team on Capitol Hill and assist with NCBA's regulatory efforts, according to NCBA Executive Director of Legislative Affairs Kristina Butts
"NCBA's public policy internship gives college students a one-of-a-kind view into the policy making process in Washington, D.C., while helping them prepare to transition from college to career," Butts says. "This isn't a 'check-the-box' style of internship. NCBA's public policy interns work alongside NCBA staff on critical issues ranging from agriculture policy to trade, the environment and more."
To apply, interested college juniors, seniors or graduate students should submit the application, a college transcript, two letters of recommendation and a resume to [email protected].
More information and the internship application are available on NCBA's website.
