Intern Insights: Why I Chose GreenStone

By: Colin Cook

When I started looking for a summer internship, there were a few standards I set for myself. First, I wanted to do something that would force me out of my comfort zone. Secondly, I wanted the internship to teach me about something that would help me in my future endeavors. Third, I was seeking an internship that could potentially be a future career for me. All of this contributed to why I was thrilled when I received the call offering the internship with GreenStone.

I am currently a senior at Northwood University. I will be graduating in the fall with a major in management and a minor in economics. I knew from a very young age that I would be working in the business field.

For the last seven years, I have worked on a large beef operation in Huron County. This is where my interest in farming kindled. I became very familiar with operating large machinery and much of what goes into carrying a steer from calf to fat. Every so often, I would see a GreenStone representative on the farm, in fact, that is how I first learned of the internship program. I was very interested in all the different services GreenStone offers farmers. Finance has always been one of my strongest subjects, from high school and through college. I thought that it would be perfect to work for a company where my prior work experience can help me with what I will be doing in the future.​​
