Kansas State University student Paige Druffel has joined Monsanto for a summer internship this year.
“I am looking forward to this hands-on opportunity to grow as an agriculturist and develop the skills needed for a future career in the industry,” Druffel said. “My passion for agriculture stems from my on-the-farm experiences and my involvement in FFA [Future Farmers of America] as a state officer.”
For the next three months, the interns will build sales skills and relationships with customers by participating in team and customer call projects and completing a county market analysis. With professional guidance, they will assist the local sales team in delivering customer service, while making industry connections and networking with other young professionals.
The Monsanto summer internship program has been active for more than a decade.
