Westminster, MD (PRWEB) July 08, 2014
MidAtlantic Farm Credit recently introduced their four student interns. “Our intern process is critical to our commitment to hiring the best and brightest in our community,” says Bob Frazee, CEO of MidAtlantic Farm Credit. “Many of our interns in the past have gone on to great careers in agriculture, including some who joined our staff permanently. We are proud to have these students as part of Farm Credit while they prepare for their careers and further their education.”
MidAtlantic hires interns in several of their departments, giving students from varied backgrounds the opportunity to work with the agricultural lender. In addition to working closely with their department supervisors, MidAtlantic’s interns are given the opportunity to visit customers’ farms, which gives them a first-hand opportunity to learn more about agriculture and the continuing need for credit in producing food for a growing population.
