Summer is in full swing at Monsanto! We are excited to have 154 summer interns majoring in a wide range of academic programs working at our World Headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri, and at sites across the U.S. Our twelve-week internship program is uniquely designed to provide a quality hands-on educational experience across more than twenty business areas as we develop Monsanto’s next generation of talented leaders.
Of the 154 summer interns, eight have been selected this year as Student Ambassadors who will represent the company on their college campuses throughout the upcoming academic year, beginning in the Fall of 2015. Over the next few months, you will catch a glimpse into a day in the life of a Monsanto intern through the Student Ambassadors’ eyes. Each Student Ambassador has returned for a second summer, so their perspective is one that you won’t want to miss!
Be on the lookout for posts from these 2015-2016 Student Ambassadors over the summer months:
