National Cattlemen's Beef Association is seeking a public policy intern for September – December 2013

College students with an interest in the beef industry, public policy and communications are the ideal target for the internship opportunity. Responsibilities will include helping NCBA represent cattlemen and cattlewomen with the NCBA lobbying team on Capitol Hill and assist with NCBA's regulatory efforts, according to NCBA Executive Director of Legislative Affairs Kristina Butts

"NCBA's public policy internship gives college students a one-of-a-kind view into the policy making process in Washington, D.C., while helping them prepare to transition from college to career," Butts says. "This isn't a 'check-the-box' style of internship. NCBA's public policy interns work alongside NCBA staff on critical issues ranging from agriculture policy to trade, the environment and more."

To apply, interested college juniors, seniors or graduate students should submit the application, a college transcript, two letters of recommendation and a resume to [email protected].

More information and the internship application are available on NCBA's website.
