The Northern International Livestock Exposition (NILE) is searching for college students who are willing and able to work all day and into the night, eat and sleep minimally, handle high pressure situations, work in the extreme weather conditions of October in Montana, and enjoy every minute of it!
From the bright lights of the rodeo arena, to the heart pounding hooves of the horse events and finally to the smells of adhesives in the cattle barn, you won't want to miss out on the action! The internship is ten days of early mornings and late nights. Some interns work the livestock show ring; checking in exhibitors, lining up steers, shuffling sheep, and recording results. Other interns set up horse awards, buck bales, and score keep the ranch rodeo. All interns laugh, goof around, and accomplish tasks. The work details are to be determined, but we guarantee they'll be valuable!
So, are you one of those college kids who are little obsessed, a little quirky, and has a lot of heart? Do you eat, breathe, and sleep stock shows and rodeos? How are you at functioning on minimal sleep and maximum caffeine or sugar? This is a job for those college kids who have brains and brawn-handle high pressure critical thinking and not be afraid to pick up a pitch fork, can you handle this?
We get it, the NILE is during the school months and it's hard to get away, but believe us, it's worth it for the experience! Yes, the NILE is months away, but it's not too soon to start thinking about your future. Many of the NILE's past interns are gainfully employed and attribute some of their success to the NILE internship experience. Apply today (while you have a little extra "unexpected free-time) and set yourself up for success!
A new addition in 2020, is changing the Media internship from a 10-day option to a semester long opportunity. This will allow the student chosen the opportunity to get an in depth knowledge of the inner workings of the Media side of the NILE Stock Show and Rodeo and receive full college credit for their efforts.
