I began my CHS journey as an intern. CHS allows interns to experience something different: a rich collaboration and learning culture based on one of our core values, our cooperative spirit. We are fully committed to supporting employee growth and development.

— Jay Debertin CHS president and chief executive officer

This internship at CHS has exceeded my expectations with a thorough role explanation, clear project assignments, proactive support, regular one-on-one sessions, and a flexible working schedule.

— Jainish Supply planning intern (Virginia Tech, industrial and system engineering)

I’m able to do the real work here. I’m not just in the background listening. I’m in the meetings and I’m a part of it.

— Nathalia Business systems associate analyst (Metropolitan State University, management information systems)

Working for a coop like CHS gave me that opportunity to get back to agronomy, which is something I'm passionate about. My internship created this connection between what I learned in the classroom and what I got to see out in the field. That was rewarding for me.

Barrent Herman

With my ag business degree, I've taken a lot of different courses about soil science, plant science and business classes. Within my internship, I've been able to apply all of those things -- working with the plants, going out to farms, talking to growers and doing soil and plant tissue samples. It really has entailed everything.

— Kaylee Agronomy sales intern (University of Wisconsin-River Falls, agriculture business)

The best part of this internship has been feeling empowered by my team, mentors, and managers. They've encouraged me to challenge myself and set goals. Whatever I want to learn, they're there to help and teach me. It’s been awesome.

— Emily Senior data engineer (University of St. Thomas-Minnesota, masters of data science)
Emily Green

One of my goals for my internship was to better understand what aspect of finance I am most interested in. My team helped me reach that goal by allowing me to work on a variety of projects. Having a team that wants to see me succeed has motivated me to gain the skills necessary to achieve my career goals.
