This week on our blog, we welcome a guest blogger who maximized her summer experience with Co-Alliance. So many times she took the bull by the horns and far exceeded the goals ahead. Today we welcome Marketing Intern Abigail Hughes, from Greenfield, Indiana, to tell you her intern story:

Once upon a time, during my freshman introductory course, I distinctly recall my professor expressing the belief that securing a summer internship would be highly unlikely for a freshman like me, even though attending the mandatory upcoming career fair was a must. Determined to prove otherwise, I took it upon myself to seek out a company that would be willing to take on a freshman intern for the upcoming summer. Among the numerous options, Co-Alliance stood out to me due to their prominent presence in Purdue Ag. With a stroke of luck, I managed to secure an interview with Co-Alliance, and shortly thereafter, I was thrilled to learn that I had been offered an internship with them. 

Interning with Co-Alliance can be a truly transformative experience, filled with countless opportunities and cherished memories. So here are 7 reasons why YOU should consider interning with Co-Alliance: 

Hands-on Learning: Co-Alliance provides a hands-on learning environment where you can apply your knowledge to real-world scenarios. You'll gain practical skills and insights that will benefit your future career.

Diverse Projects: Co-Alliance offers a wide range of projects across various departments. This diversity enables you to explore different aspects of the industry and discover your passion. Little did I know that one of my projects would be helping travel across the beautiful state of Indiana to capture captivating moments at county fair Swine shows through photography.
