Agriculture and Life Sciences Career Day at Iowa State University Set for Oct. 9
September 26th, 2018
AMES, Iowa — Hundreds of job recruiters will be looking for employees Oct. 9 when the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Iowa State University holds its fall career fair.
This event is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Lied Recreation Center, 518 Beach Road in Ames. It is open to the public as well as Iowa State students and alumni.
“Despite the turbulent economic conditions in the agricultural industry, we’re encouraged with the response we have seen from our industry partners. I'm confident we will exceed last year's number of participants,” said Mike Gaul, director of agriculture and life sciences career services.
The Agriculture and Life Sciences Career Day has so far attracted about 260 organizations and Gaul expected to at least reach last year’s 265. He said last year the college hosted 850 job interviews the day following the career fair.
