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.   

You can learn more about the event on the Women Changing the Face of Agriculture website and Facebook page.
