Students at the annual career fair

Annual Agriculture Career Fair

Wednesday, October 7, 2020 • 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. • University Union Grand Ballroom

The Western Illinois University School of Agriculture would like to invite you to participate in the 24th Annual Agricultural Career Fair. The fair will begin an 9:00 am and conclude at 1:00 p.m., with lunch to follow. The $50 registration fee covers all registration materials and lunch for all exhibitors. You will be provided with one 6' table and 2 chairs (additional chairs available upon request).

The Ag Career Fair is specifically designed to focus on agriculture career opportunities. The goal of this Fair is to see that our students are exposed to the different careers available. By dealing directly with agriculture students, you will be able to give them more insight into the professions attainable within the ag industry. Your company does not need to have positions or internships open to participate in the fair.

Contact Debbie Carithers, Office Manager, at DA-Carithers@wiu.edu or 309-298-1080 with any questions.
