What is the best part about our internship program? Show us your hard work ethic, and you’ll have the chance to snag a full-time position. Dan Klavetter is a prime example of that!
Dan Klavetter completed an agronomy internship with All-American Co-op during the summer of 2012, and enjoyed his experience so much that he came back in 2013. “The reason I went back another year was because I had a such a great experience my first year,” Dan says. “I liked that it was very hands-on. I was able to take what I learned in the classroom and put it to use in the field.”
Dan, who graduated from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls with a degree in crop and soil science, spent those two summers doing various hands-on activities, including treating seed, planting a plot, and scouting fields for weed and insect pressure. He says All-American Co-op made him feel like part of the staff.
“I’ve had other internships, and in this one I didn’t feel micromanaged,” Dan comments. “They put a lot of trust in you, and hold you to a higher standard.”
Today, Dan continues to work for All-American Co-op, first as a sales agronomist from their Stewartville location and now as our Agronomy Location Manager in Plainview. He says his internships solidified his career choice and made him realize he truly does appreciate agronomy.
“I have a passion for agriculture, and it’s what I enjoy being around,” Dan mentions.
So why does he continue to enjoy working at All-American Co-op? “It’s the people,” Dan states. “They are a great group to work with.”
