Application Instructions

E-mail your resume, cover letter, and reference page to intern@nationalwestern.com.

  • Your cover letter needs to include a rank order of the top 2-3 NWSS internships you’re interested in. Please include the dates you’re available for the internship, year in school, and any skills or experiences you have that make you qualified for the position(s).
  • On your resume include your name, local address, phone, and e-mail. Include your major, GPA, and relevant computer and language skills as well.
  • On your reference page, please include a minimum of two names and current contact information for references. At least one reference should be a member of your academic community (i.e., professors or advisors).

Applications will be open September 1st - 30th, 2021.  You will be contacted to do an interview either in person or by phone. Students selected for an internship will be notified by mid-October. If selected, contact your academic advisor or department internship coordinator to register for internship credits. We realize that the Stock Show overlaps the first week of spring classes. While professors are normally willing to work with you during this time, if selected as an intern, it is your responsibility to contact professors in advance and arrange any necessary make-up work before you leave for the Stock Show.
