The Career Fair Is Amazing

Derek Berkshire (BS ’19, agribusiness marketing and agricultural communication) delayed college for a year to serve as an Indiana FFA state officer and was eager to get an internship following his freshman year.​

“I looked for a business internship, but one where I could use communication skills I learned at FFA,” says the agribusiness marketing and agricultural communication double-major. He found it at Tyson Foods as a corporate identity intern. The following year he pursued a more agribusiness-focused experience as a management associate intern with Cargill Feed and Nutrition. A common thread is he obtained both at the College of Agriculture career fair. “The career fair is amazing, just in size and scope alone,” says Berkshire, a Monticello, Indiana native, of the event that draws over 150 companies recruiting for permanent and internship positions. “The experiences you have are a great way to learn what you’re passionate about and give you a chance to put your knowledge to the test.”
