NILE internship apps are due end of August
March 9, 2018
The NILE is offering the experience of a lifetime October 11-21!
The Northern International Livestock Exposition (NILE) is looking for college students who are willing and able to work all day and into the night, eat and sleep minimally, handle high pressure situations, work in the extreme weather conditions of October in Montana, and enjoy every minute of it.
NILE staff is looking for those college kids who are little obsessed, a little quirky, and have a lot of heart. We want those who eat, breathe, and sleep stock shows and rodeos. We want those who can function on minimal sleep and maximum caffeine. College kids who have brains and brawn-handle high pressure critical thinking and not be afraid to pick up a pitch fork.
From the bright lights of the rodeo arena, to the heart pounding hooves of the horse events and finally to the smells of adhesives in the cattle barn, you won't want to miss out on the action! The internship is ten days of early mornings and late nights. Some interns work the livestock show ring; checking in exhibitors, lining up steers, shuffling sheep, and recording results. Other interns set up horse awards, buck bales, and score keep the ranch rodeo. All interns laugh, goof around, and get stuff done. The work details are to be determined, but we guarantee they'll be valuable!

All we are missing is this year's group of interns! It could be YOU!
