Summer is an exciting and busy time for Syngenta. Each growing season, we hire a large number of students from across the country to help with our small and large scale research trials and provide additional field and grower support for our sales force. In fact, many of our full time employees started their career with Syngenta as a summer student!
Many of our summer positions will help you gain valuable experience and insights on the exciting career paths available in Agriculture. For example, if you are interested in sales and marketing, you may spend the summer months working closely with a Territory Sales Representative supporting grower and retail customers. Is research and development a strong consideration? Try working alongside our field biologists or breeders conducting small-plot research programs and getting involved in the preparation of research materials, data collection, and analysis of results.
No matter what your interests are or what program you are studying, consider a summer role with Syngenta! Check back for postings in October and watch for us this fall where we will be present at Campus Career Fairs in Canada to answer your questions about potential summer and longer term career opportunities.
Here's what some of our former students had to say about their summer work experience:
“Syngenta treats their employees with respect, and offers work that provides a feeling of accomplishment.”
“Syngenta gives lots of options and opportunities for students as well as a clear idea and appropriate training at the beginning of the work term. They also have awesome people leading the summer students!!”
“Syngenta takes care of its employees – they provide very good, organized safety training making things a lot simpler on the job. They treat employees very well and show appreciation with perks such as meals, golf tournament, free clothing, etc. They make the summer work term enjoyable and memorable!!!!”
