Angus internship apps due Feb. 5

College students with an interest in the livestock business should consider applying for a summer internship with the American Angus Association. The 10-week, paid internship programs offer three students a chance to gain real-world knowledge and experience in the beef cattle industry.

The member-driven organization provides internship opportunities through the events and education department, communications and public relations, and the Angus Journal editorial team. Application details are outlined below, and all materials must be received by Feb. 5, 2016.

A summer intern joining the Association’s events and education department can expect to play a significant role in planning youth events hosted by the National Junior Angus Association (NJAA). The selected intern will assist with preparations, communications and correspondence for junior shows and events.

Applicants must be enrolled in an agriculture-related major, and consider themselves a self-starter, detail-oriented and an outgoing individual who has the ability to work well with others. Travel to the 2016 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS), Leaders Engaged in Angus Development (LEAD) Conference, and other shows and events is expected.

To apply, send a cover letter, résumé and references to Jaclyn Clark, events and education director, American Angus Association, 3201 Frederick Ave., Saint Joseph, MO 64506, or email

College students with a passion for agricultural communications would make an excellent addition to Angus Media’s communications team. From print stories to television scripts, and photography to graphic design, the summer intern will experience all facets of communications for the American Angus Association.

Applicants should have strong writing and design skills, in addition to having completed coursework in news and feature writing, editing and design. Experience in photography, video and social media is an asset in this fast-paced internship.

To apply, send a cover letter, résumé, references and writing samples to Jena McRell, digital editor, Angus Media, 3201 Frederick Ave., Saint Joseph, MO 64506. For more information, contact McRell at 816-383-5100 or

Working closely with the communications intern on the Angus Media team, the Angus Journal offers a college junior or senior the opportunity to be part of its editorial team for the summer. The writing-intensive internship offers the selected intern an opportunity to participate in producing various publications, including the Angus Journal, the Angus Journal Digital, the Angus Beef Bulletin, the Angus Beef Bulletin EXTRA, the Angus Journal Daily, editorial websites, and social media efforts.

The internship will be flexible enough to tailor to the strengths and needs of the intern, but many duties can be expected. Experience in news and feature writing, editing and photography are strongly suggested.

To apply, send a cover letter, résumé and writing samples to Shauna Hermel, Angus Journal editor, 3201 Frederick Ave., Saint Joseph, MO 64506. For more information, contact Hermel at 816-383-5270 or
