College students majoring in business, finance, accounting, agricultural economics, or marketing may now apply for Southwest Georgia Farm Credit’s 2013 Summer Internship Program. The eight-week program is designed to challenge students, develop skills, engage in meaningful experiences and provide an opportunity to put academic skills to the test.

The Summer Internship Program offers hands-on training in business and finance, with a comprehensive overview of four key modules: credit analysis, sales, accounting/operations, and executive leadership.

The goal is to provide students with experience in a fast-paced financial environment.

“Our objective is to give students a true-to-life business experience,” said Allison Godwin, assistant controller and internship program coordinator. “That means our interns will not only develop their analytic skills, they’ll develop their leadership potential, as well.”

The Summer Internship Program opportunities are paid positions, and will be offered through Southwest Georgia Farm Credit’s Bainbridge office. Students should visit SWGAFarmCredit.com for program details and to apply.

Video testimonials from Southwest Georgia Farm Credit’s 2012 interns are also available online. The deadline to submit a resume/application is Nov. 30.
