Cheesemaking is a dynamic and diverse career field, with great opportunity for advancement.

Consider an internship - paid or unpaid - with a WCMA member company to gain meaningful experience and make valuable connections.

The WCMA Internship Exchange accepts applications from students interested in a variety of careers in the dairy processing industry: Production, Machine Operation, Maintenance, Packaging, Quality Assurance/Food Safety, Marketing, Accounting, and Human Resources. 

WCMA works with the University of Wisconsin System, Wisconsin Technical College System, and high school guidance counselors to promote these opportunities.

WCMA also invites members to share their interest in hosting interns. Employers should expect to commit to an intern for a full semester, offer structured and supervised opportunities for learning, and be prepared to complete evaluations on the intern’s efforts for educational credits.
