Iowa State University's Spring Ag Career Day Set for Feb. 1
January 18th, 2012
AMES, Iowa — About 100 employers are expected to recruit students Feb. 1 at the Iowa State University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences spring career fair.
“We are seeing companies and organizations that were not at our fall event attend the spring event,” said Mike Gaul, director of Agriculture and Life Sciences Career Services. “This is especially true for many of the natural resource-type organizations.”
The career fair is open to the public. It will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Great Hall at the Iowa State University Memorial Union.
This is the fifth year a spring event was added to the annual fall Ag Career Day on the Iowa State campus. The fall event is the largest such career fair in the country, attracting students from other colleges.
“The job market remains strong for our students so I am not surprised to see the type of response that we are getting for the event. It really is a great ‘second chance’ event for both students and employers,” Gaul said.
