The Department Head needing the intern.
(608) 273-1000
It depends on the department. If it’s Farm, then it will be to work with the Farm Director and cover meetings and ag events etc. If it is Events, it will be during the summer when we put on most of our larger events and the intern will help with putting on and working the events. If it is on air, then the Program Director and the Promotions Director will assign specific duties to the intern. The main purpose is to help the intern learn and experience the job to which they are interning, presumably so they can make a decision on their future.
We have had paid and non-paid. Summer is more popular due to all that is going on with the stations, the farm department and the events.
