The College of Agriculture hosts a career fair every fall and spring semester. Over 150 companies attend, providing recruiters with the opportunity to educate students about their organizations, advertise positions and/or interview students for permanent or internship positions.

During the fall, a Resume Blitz is held the day before the fair.  The evening prior to the Fall Career Fair, we host an Employer Panel Discussion. This is an open dialogue with 100 students, lasting 60 minutes, followed by a networking session.  If your company is interested in participating in either pre-fair event, please indictated your preference on the registration form for the fall fair only.
