Ever wonder what it would be like to intern at FBNSM? We asked our most recent class of interns who they found the experience. Here's what they said.
"I came to FBN because I knew they were making great use of data from farmers and helping farmers understand more about their fields and crops. It was my first industry experience, so I was a bit nervous before I started, but my co-workers were all really friendly and helpful, not to mention that they are really smart and dedicated to their work."
"In my time at FBN, I worked on three different projects associated with weather, and not only were these projects really interesting to me, they were also important pieces FBN’s big picture."
"Right now, farmers are having a tough time because low commodity prices, and at FBN, we're helping farmer manage this in a lot of different ways, from basic analytics to seed intelligence to price transparency. I was able to participate in creating products that not only help farmers make wiser decisions in order to improve crop production, but also help them earn and save more money."
"Because I loved the mission, the work, and because I want to be part of making thse things happen, I decided to come back to FBN after finishing school. I have been studying/working in ag for more than ten years and I hope that joining FBN will allow me to use my knowledge to make meaningful contributions."
"I know that by the time I get back next year, FBN will have grown a lot. I am really excited to work with the data to help understand and improve the profitability of farmers. The best part of working at FBN was seeing that even a small change, a small step is making an impact. Nobody else has ever accomplished these things before, and at the core of all these projects is helping farmers. That feels great!"
