“My favorite part about working for John Deere is being able to express myself and my personal interest without being held down in my position. This includes being involved with different Employee Resource Groups such as International Cultural Exchange, Black Employee Resource Group, QC Women’s REACH, Rainbow and Allies, and the vast variety of volunteer opportunities. I have found over my two summers that Deere is very much open to showcasing excellence and interest within its employees. Everyone at Deere wants you to succeed no matter what direction or field you decide to end up in.” – Abagail, Marketing Intern

“I have been working for John Deere since I was a freshman in college. The reason I keep coming back is because of the opportunities I have been presented with in each of the different positions I’ve been in. From the challenging projects that help me to grow in my career and accounting knowledge, to the people I work with who are always willing to give me a helping hand, I wouldn’t trade my intern and part-time student experiences for anything.” – Liz, Agriculture Finance Intern
