2008 International Poultry Expo welcomes students
The U.S. Poultry & Egg Association will be sponsoring the College
Student Career Program at the 2008 International Poultry Expo and International
Feed Expo in the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta from 23-25 January.
The College Student Career Program provides a mutually beneficial
experience for students and industry recruiters, giving employers the
opportunity to interview qualified college students for employment or internship
openings in one location over a three-day period.
The program allows students to experience the largest annual gathering of
poultry people, technology and services. Through exhibits and educational
programs they are provided with the opportunity to acquire the tools they need
to successfully transition from academics to industry. The students eligible to
participate are seniors or graduate students from a 4-year program with various
majors. Underclassmen seeking internships are also eligible to interview.
The U.S. Poultry & Egg Association began sponsoring the annual College
Student Career Program nearly 40 years ago. The 3-day event, held during the
International Poultry Expo and International Feed Expo, is the only one of its
kind in the poultry industry. Approximately 300 students from over 25
universities participate each year.
