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.
