Fort Atkinson, WI • Summer 2022 • Paid
For the past 34 years, our internship program has provided agricultural journalism and dairy science majors with an opportunity to write for a national dairy publication, and applications are being accepted for our intern for the summer of 2022.
Interested students do not need to be journalism majors but should show a strong interest in writing. A majority of the summer will be spent working directly with the Hoard’s Dairyman editors and writing content for the magazine.
What would the summer involve? Here are just a few highlights:
* Writing for the magazine — Our intern writes the Farm Flashes page, which appears in every issue. The intern will also write longer feature articles and other shorter pieces for the magazine.
* Online communications — The intern would be a regular contributor to HD Notebook, our blog that is updated every weekday. There may also be opportunities to write for our e- newsletter, Hoard’s Dairyman Intel.
* The World Dairy Expo edition — Our intern works with the editorial team to gather articles, plan layout, and edit copy for the September 10 issue of the magazine that features World Dairy Expo.
* The opportunity to travel — During the Hoard’s Dairyman internship experience, students typically spend some time traveling to meetings and visiting dairy farms across the country. The purpose is to write farm stories and gather article leads, along with visiting and documenting the story of National Dairy Shrine’s student recognition winner.
This paid internship will be based out of Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin. Interested students should mail a current résumé (including college address), transcript, and cover letter, along with two written letters of recommendation, to Abby Bauer, Associate Editor, 28 Milwaukee Ave. West, Fort Atkinson, WI 53538. Materials can also be sent electronically to email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>. All application materials are due by Friday, October 22, 2021.
