Published: Tue. Jan 11th, 2011
Selecting a career path can be a very daunting task for students. Have you considered a career in agriculture? The agriculture industry has a variety of career paths that appeal to everyone's interests. Not sure if you would fit in? Not to worry, the Illinois Agri-Women’s second annual career fair event, “Women Changing the Face of Agriculture – Building steAm” can help you.
This career fair is specifically geared towards young women who would like to learn more about, or wish to pursue a career in, agriculture. High school FFA, junior college, and university students are welcome to attend, as are women who are interested in a career change.
This year, the career fair will be held March 4th, 2011, at the Bone Student Center – Illinois State University Campus - in Normal from 9:30 to 3:15, with lunch included. The fair will feature successful women who have chosen a career in agriculture and their companies. It is expected to have more than 90 agribusiness women to participate and share their experiences in the agriculture field. The attendees will have a chance to interact with the professionals, ask questions, learn about opportunities, and network with each other.
The cost to attend the career fair is $15.00 per individual, but the EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT is $10.00 per individual until January 15th.
