ST. JOSEPH, Mo. — The 13 regional managers of the American Angus Association® are the boots-on-the-ground Angus experts who wear many hats. This fall, the American Angus Association’s field services team is excited to offer the new 2021 Regional Manager Internship, which is designed to enhance a student’s ability to build effective relationships, craft a promotional strategy and learn about the Angus business and cattle industry. The 9-week, full-time internship begins in August and lasts until December and will be based at the American Angus Association headquarters in St. Joseph, Mo., with numerous opportunities to travel to different regions of the country.
From assisting with herd visits to securing advertising in the Angus Journal and Angus Beef Bulletin to providing insight to the breeder, the regional manager intern will gain valuable hands-on, real-world experience in the Angus business.
“The Regional Manager Internship provides a unique learning experience for rising junior and senior college students interested in a career as a field representative with a breed association or similar positions within the industry,” said David Gazda, regional manager and director of field services. “It will provide an opportunity to gain valuable work experience and exposure to all entities and departments of the Association from conception to end product. Most importantly, this internship will provide an individual hands-on experience and a greater insight into the role regional manager’s perform as a representative of the Association and the skills sets required to serve successfully in this position.”
The selected intern will have the opportunity to promote the Angus breed and represent the American Angus Association by attending production sales, shows and other events.
“The role of the regional manager is what truly drives the advancement and connection within the Angus breed. This team of dedicated professionals serve as a trusted resource for Angus breeders and buyers of Angus genetics by delivering information, guidance and support across all aspects of the Association and its entities,” said Brett Spader, Angus Media president. “This internship is a unique opportunity to become familiar with all aspects of the Angus breed while having a meaningful impact on Angus breeders.”
