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.”
