Interning for Farm Credit

Hello everyone, my name is Jalen Gaines. This summer I will be working in the Statesville Administrative Office and the Brown Summit Office as a Credit Analyst Intern and Loan Officer Intern for Carolina Farm Credit. I am from Statesville, North Carolina. I am a senior, applied mathematics student, currently attending the illustrious North Carolina A&T State University. At NCA&T, I have been a part of the Aggie Athletic Foundation (AAF) and New Student Programs (NSP). In my leisure time, I enjoy reading, participating in community events, writing poetry, and spending time with my girlfriend.

            I have experience interacting with customers and providing excellent customer service to them. I believe certain skills that I have maintained throughout my work experiences will benefit my time here at Carolina Farm Credit. This is my first internship and it has definitely been an amazing opportunity. Learning more about what it takes to become a farmer or getting loans for farming operations will allow me to inform those who may not know the information but, would like to know. This will help me connect with minorities and socially disadvantaged groups who are interested in agriculture.

My mentor at Carolina Farm Credit has presented a lot of information to me and is one of the top Credit Analyst. I enjoy learning from him because it has sparked interest in wanting to be a part of the credit department here at Carolina Farm Credit. I am looking forward to learning more about what it is like being a Credit Analyst and what they do on a day by day basis. I am very thankful for this opportunity and would look into possible opportunities with Carolina Farm Credit after my undergrad at NCA&T.
