Our Culture

Why Intern at Rayonier?

At Rayonier, people are our top priority, and that includes our interns. As a part of our team, you’ll be exposed to a variety of assignments, learn to use Rayonier’s systems and technology and acquire new skills and experience.

You'll gain a well-rounded view of our operations and career opportunities throughout the company. Our interns work on site across our U.S. locations and also have the opportunity to meet with senior leaders at Rayonier’s corporate headquarters in Wildlight, FL.

Our forestry interns have routinely been involved with field reconnaissance, mapping, inventory, photo interpretation, field measurement techniques, timber sales, silvicultural planning, market intelligence, timber market analysis and more.

We appreciate that you need time to learn the ropes, so our internships span a minimum of 10 weeks. Interns receive competitive pay including holiday pay. We also offer an allowance for housing, cell phones and safety boots when applicable and cover travel expenses.

Testimonials

Learning at Rayonier

These former interns, now Rayonier employees, share what their experiences were like.

  • Duncan Wilder
    Inventory Analyst in Wildlight, FL

    Rayonier invests in its employees. As an intern, you aren't used as an expendable employee to complete grunt work. You are introduced to a broad array of work tasks and valued as a contributing member on many projects.

    Serenia O’Berry
    Tree Improvement Forester in Glennville, GA

    Rayonier cared about what I found interesting and, as a student, they wanted to give me an opportunity to find the part of forestry I loved. My internship with the research team provided a kick start to my path of tree improvement.

  • Joe Geisel
    Technical Forester in Hastings, FL

    At Rayonier, you’ll find a down-to-earth team environment in which every person cares about one another and truly wants them to succeed. Being in a real-world job for 12 weeks changes your perspective in many ways. It helped me decide the forest industry was the path I wanted to take after finishing school.

    Justin Wesson
    Timber Marketing Forester in Manor, GA

    As an intern, I was trained early on how to use several of the Rayonier systems including its Land Management System, which gave me a great head start in getting my full-time job with Rayonier and being able to perform many of the tasks I still do today.

  • Dwight Hilton
    Technical Forester in Dublin, Georgia

    The internship program at Rayonier is an excellent way to experience the many different facets of what a forestry career has to offer. Rayonier invests in its employees, including interns, and gives them experience in what interests them instead of dictating a set schedule for the 12-week period. It also provides a headstart on training in internal programs and methods that can better prepare you for a possible career with the company after you graduate.
