The National Cattlemen's Beef Association's government affairs office in Washington, D.C., is accepting applications for a summer 2012 public policy internship. The deadline to submit an application for this opportunity is March 12, 2012.
"Gaining valuable, hands-on experience through opportunities like the public policy internship at NCBA helps prepare college students to make the challenging transition from college to career," said NCBA Executive Director of Legislative Affairs Kristina Butts. "We are looking for college students with an interest in the beef industry and in public policy to help NCBA represent cattlemen and women in Washington, D.C. The internship is designed to work closely with the lobbying and communications teams on Capitol Hill and assist with NCBA's regulatory efforts.
The full-time internship will begin May 29, 2012 and end Aug. 17, 2012. To apply, interested college juniors, seniors or graduate students should submit the application, an official college transcript, two letters of recommendation and a resume to [email protected]. More information and the internship application are available on NCBA's website.
"This isn't a 'check-the-box' style of internship. NCBA's public policy interns work alongside NCBA staff on critical issues ranging from the estate tax to food safety, the environment and more." Butts said. "If you or someone you know is interested in this opportunity, we encourage you to apply."
