It's a great resource to help students find scholarships and internships in the green industry!  -LA

**********************************************************************************

People are excited to work with plants, we just need to make sure enough qualified candidates find their dream green-collar job. Only 61% of the annual job openings across the horticulture industry are expected to be filled annually.

That's why the team here at Seed Your Future is thrilled to launch our new free online Horticulture Careers Internship Search Tool to help students find internships across the wide diversity of the art, science, technology and business of plants.

The new tool is unique in both its inclusion of internships across the art, science, technology and business of plant careers; and in the three ways for site visitors to search for their future internship, by job category, by employer and by state.

“Internships are the number one experience that employers look for on a resume. The Seed Your Future horticulture careers internship search tool is a great way to find the internship that will help students get the career they want,” said John Dole, Ph.D., of North Carolina State University and a member of Seed Your Future's National Leadership Cabinet.

Find an internship - or share this new tool with a student - and help us build the pipeline of #FutureGreenCollar professionals! Together, we can help more people find their #PlantPower.
