Student Summer Intern Programs
If all of your business and technical knowledge has come from books, your world of knowledge could use a dose of reality. Nothing beats the opportunity to put book knowledge to the test. That’s where our student programs come in. It’s all about learning the business and the technology from the inside out. People who excel in this program may be invited to return the following year or receive an offer of full-time employment.
Hands-on experience working full time during summer break will develop you as a person and your career. Our summer intern program lets you build a network of friends and contacts, have fun, prove yourself to us—and let us prove ourselves to you!
Preferred candidates have exceptional leadership and communication skills and have completed the sophomore year of an undergraduate program or the first year of a graduate program. Most opportunities are for students in Horticulture and Agriculture fields, but students in other disciplines are sometimes considered.
You will have the opportunity to gain knowledge through hands on work experience in the fields of Propagation, Pest Management, Fertility, Irrigation, Plant Culture, Growing, Sales and Shipping. Our program is scheduled during summer break. You will have a written schedule that will allow you to spend organized time in each of the areas for a maximum learning experience. As an intern, you are an hourly paid employee of the nursery receiving a paycheck once a week. That’s a real benefit, being paid to learn! Greenleaf will help you in locating housing for the term. We will help with information needed to qualify for college credit. Our program is designed for you to learn about the nursery industry, about us, and for us to learn about you.
