Iowa State University Agricultural Job Fair Set for Feb. 5

AMES, Iowa — The spring version of the Agriculture Career Day at Iowa State University offers a “second chance” for students who may have missed last fall’s record-breaking job fair.

The event is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 5 in the Memorial Union on the Iowa State campus.

“The spring event continues to be an excellent second chance for both students who perhaps missed out on the fall recruitment season, were studying abroad or are new to the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, as well as employers who still have hiring needs to meet, both full-time and internships,” said Mike Gaul, director of Agriculture and Life Sciences Career Services.

Due to space limitations, the event is limited to 110 organizations and is full. Gaul said interested groups are still encouraged to register in case of cancellations.

About 10 percent of the employers scheduled to participate are new to the event. A list of organizations is on the event web page at

“There’s an excellent mix of organizations for natural resource students, probably our best ever,” Gaul said.
