CARS 1st Annual Career Fair, Spring 2014
On February 11, 2014, the College of Agriculture and Related Sciences held its first annual career fair, which focused on professional development, networking, and graduate school inquiries. This fair exposed students to the variety of opportunities awaiting them upon graduation in agriculture, food and nutritional sciences, natural resources, and textiles and apparel industries.
Students who attended the Fair met with potential employers and representatives from universities that offer advanced degrees in their fields. Attendees learned about graduate programs, internships, and employment opportunities as it related to their majors.
The career fair was a success for all of the participants; students are looking forward to next year’s event.
