The Experience

We’re talking about valuable real world experiences and real paychecks. You can make a difference at work and in your professional development with a COUNTRY internship.

We value you!

We value each employee, including our interns. You have the opportunity to contribute in a meaningful way, to achieve your potential and to fulfill your career goals in a professional and supportive environment. From planning the COUNTRY Youth Classic to integrating Six Sigma processes, our interns build solid work skills and achieve great accomplishments during their experience. You will work side-by-side with employees across departments, apply fundamentals you’ve learned in class, make a difference for others in the community by volunteering during IMPACT week and bring fresh ideas to contribute to the success of our organization.

Here's a Taste of What we Offer

Our intern program has great benefits that will help you secure your future career goals.

Networking Opportunities
Networking Opportunities

Our interns attend the annual kick-off to meet other interns and engage with the CEO of our organization. As a COUNTRY intern, you will get the chance to interact with managers, directors and top executives as part of our “Leadership Speaker Series.” Nothing takes the place of interacting and learning directly from our organization’s leaders.

Mentorship Program
Mentorship Program

You will have a mentor who is also in your division as a direct contact for questions and guidance throughout your internship. Managers and mentors are both available to assist you in gaining exposure to other departments or areas through job shadowing opportunities.

Compensation & Housing

Interns earn competitive pay and enjoy paid holidays alongside our full-time employees. Eligible interns also have the option to utilize the COUNTRY housing assistance program and receive a stipend for the rent expense paid by COUNTRY directly to the housing company.

Real Fun & Giving Back
Real Fun and Giving Back!

Program activities vary from year-to-year, but include intern fishbowl lunches and local community sporting events.

Each year our interns give back to the community by volunteering at places like Habitat for Humanity, Midwest Food Bank, Safe Harbor and most recently the Washington, Ill. tornado clean-up effort.
