Former Interns...Where are they now?
We hope to encourage YOU, future candidates for Horticulture Internships, with personal updates from our former interns.
We offer interns many opportunities to network and develop professional connections to last a career and to make friendships to last a lifetime.
Such opportunities abound during a summertime at MBG. Many former Horticulture interns have been hired into permanent positions here at the Garden, and so are still with us today. Most were hired into Horticulture, although others went to positions here in Research or Education. Other interns left the state, yet continue to keep in touch with us years later.
If you're interested in a career in the field of Horticulture, read on to see how former participants remember interning here and how their own careers have evolved from the days when they were once horticulture interns at Missouri Botanical Garden.
