“Working as an intern at John Deere has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have known. Having the chance to apply classroom knowledge with the technical skills I gained while working on real-life engineering problems has been invaluable. Engineering is about solving problems and making a change, and John Deere gave me the chance to do that.” – Michael, Product Engineer Intern

You know you’ve worked an amazing internship when you walk away from it feeling like you’ve learned a ton, and John Deere makes sure every single intern feels this way.

2. You Build an Entire Network

“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

The best internships don’t just give you a great learning experience; they also make sure you’re exposed to an entire networking of people dedicated to making your career great.

3. You Get Real Work and Are Challenged

“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

No intern is grabbing the boss’ coffee or picking up dry cleaning at John Deere; it’s all about working hard and getting new experiences.

4. You Get Intern-Specific Professional Development
