NCBA Looking for Public Policy Interns

NCBA Looking for Public Policy Interns
Interns will work with NCBA public policy team in spring or summer period

The National Cattlemen's Beef Association's government affairs office in Washington, D.C., is accepting applications for spring and summer 2014 public policy internships.

The deadline to submit an application for the internships is Oct. 6, 2013.

"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," said NCBA Executive Director of Legislative Affairs Kristina Butts.

Butts said NCBA is looking for college students with an interest in the beef industry, public policy and communications. The internship is designed to work closely with the lobbying team on Capitol Hill and assist with NCBA's regulatory efforts.

The full-time spring internship will begin Jan. 6, 2014, and end May 9, 2014. The full-time summer internship will begin May 19, 2014 and end Aug. 22, 2014.

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].

"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." Butts said. "If you or someone you know is interested in this opportunity, we encourage you to apply."

More information about the internships can be found on the NCBA website.
