Students at the annual career fair

Annual Agriculture Career Fair

Wednesday, October 4, 2017 • 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. • University Union Grand Ballroom

The Western Illinois University School of Agriculture would like to invite you to participate in the 21st Annual Agricultural Career Fair. The fair will conclude at 1:00 p.m., with lunch to follow. The $50 registration fee covers all registration materials and lunch for all exhibitors. You will be provided with one 6' table and 2 chairs (additional chairs available upon request).

The Ag Career Fair is specifically designed to focus on agriculture career opportunities. The goal of this Fair is to see that our students are exposed to the different careers available. By dealing directly with agriculture students, you will be able to give them more insight into the professions attainable within the ag industry. Your company does not need to have positions or internships open to participate in the fair.

Please return the registration form (pdf) by Thursday, September 28. Once your form has been received, we will send you additional information about the fair. If you have any questions, please contact us at (309) 298-1080 or through email at DC-Pestle1@wiu.edu.
