Opportunity Fair

The agriculture and food industry is demanding a highly talented workforce.

 The AFA Leaders Conference Opportunity Fair is a unique event that is mutually beneficial for industry professionals and AFA students.

 The Opportunity Fair gives human resource representatives a chance to communicate, advocate and mentor AFA students about  opportunities available within the industry. At the same time, professionals have the chance to engage the nation’s top student leaders from  more than 70 different colleges and universities.

 During the fair, students not only have a chance to network and learn from industry professionals, but they can also search out  opportunities for internships, full-time employment, additional leadership organizations, graduate studies and international travel. All of  these opportunities help create a personal and professional portfolio of experiences.

AFA continues to be a resource to both students and employers year-round by reviewing resumes and linking students and employers based on individual interests.
