Meet the Interns!
Think of all the movies you’ve seen in which the interns make the copies, get the coffee and wait on the “boss” hand and foot. Now erase that from your memory, because that is nothing like the experience these students had.
Our Interns commit 7 months of time away from their studies to train and work just as a normal part of the Ag Leader Tech Support team. This year Tech Support had five outstanding Interns that have proven to be a great asset to the team. Take a minute and learn about them below. Chances are you’ve talked to them at some point and didn’t even know it.
Major: Agriculture Engineering – Iowa State
What does is mean to Jacob to be an “Ag Leader”? It means improving the world of Ag. Whether that is from the support side helping customers get their system up and running or in the long run on the engineering side, designing and finding new ways to improve the ag community.
Major: Agricultural Systems Management – The Ohio State
Evan remembers one phone call when a customer called in and could not view his map on the run screen. Evan assisted him through the process of clearing the bounds. Once the customer did that he was able to view his map. He told Evan he was a genius. “To me it’s a simple task, but for him it really made a difference. Hearing that complement from a customer makes me enjoy helping them. I have to try and put myself in his/her shoes and see things from that point of view,” said Evan.
A huge thanks to our devoted interns for the hard work they have put in over the past seven months. We wish them the very best of luck in the future!
