An Internship to jumpstart your career


Our world-class summer Internship Program runs from June to August and provides challenging, hands-on work experience in either a production or corporate business department. Interns will have the opportunity to work on meaningful projects that develop individual skills and knowledge base and impact the business in a meaningful way.

Thinking long term? So are we! Successful interns will have the opportunity to interview for the Management Trainee Program at the end of their internship before the positions are opened to anyone else!

The high visibility and access to Executives provided me with rare insight into macro-level strategies and business rationales few internships across the country offer, certainly not in companies as large. Furthermore, the Internship naturally progresses into the Management Trainee Program, a curriculum I was really attracted to upon graduation.”
-Dolan, Corporate Intern and JBS Trainee

Management Trainee Program


The Management Trainee Program is an 12-month rotational leadership development program for recent graduates who want to pursue their passion and build a career in leadership with the world’s largest protein company. Management Trainees have the unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in multiple areas of a facility providing an in-depth understanding of how the pieces of our business work together to feed the world.

Each rotation includes a project that will allow trainees to utilize and grow their project management, problem solving and collaboration skills. In addition, trainees receive formal and informal leadership development training to help prepare them for an accelerated career path in their area of interest upon completion of the program.
