January 23rd, 2013

AMES, Iowa -- More than 100 organizations will be on the Iowa State University campus Feb. 6 to recruit at the spring job fair of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.

Ag Career Day is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union.

Last October, 208 employers participated in the fall semester Ag Career Day, making it the largest job fair of its kind in the country. The latest survey of recent College of Agriculture and Life Sciences graduates found a nearly 98 percent placement rate.

Many of the recruiters at the Feb. 6 job fair look to fill employment needs, both internship and full-time, as well as promote opportunities for next year, said Mike Gaul, director of Agriculture and Life Sciences Career Services.

"Spring also is when many natural resource organizations begin to fill their internship needs, so we are excited to have many of these types of organizations join us for the event," Gaul said. "The event is a great second chance opportunity for both students and employers."
