Meet some of the John Deers interns 

Andrea is a Human Resources Intern, who says that, "The best part of working for John Deere is all the challenging and beneficial work assignments that you get to do."

"They give you real work that makes an actual difference in the company. The fact that you are given the opportunity to use your own creativity in that work and that they trust you to do so is amazing. My favorite part of my internship, aside from all the amazing projects and people, is all the traveling I have gotten to do. Doing this has allowed me to tour many of the amazing factories within Deere and learn about our customers and many products that we produce. It makes me very proud to see what Deere is doing as a company for their customers, and I am proud to have the opportunity to have a small part in it," Andrea continues. 

Meghan, meanwhile, is a Mechanical Engineering Intern, who says if she had to pick, her favorite part of her internship at John Deere is the people. 

"Every single engineer and operator I have talked to or worked with has been so genuine and helpful. Everyone seems to love their job and is passionate about what they do on a day-to-day basis. Whenever you need help, someone is always willing to work with you directly and in detail, which has been extremely helpful to learn and develop during my time here. Each employee genuinely wants to see you succeed," Meghan remarks.
