Agriculture Future of America, a development organization for young leaders in agriculture, and AgCareers.com, a provider of global talent solutions in agriculture and food, announced a career success partnership. This partnership will utilize both organizations' strengths to continue spurring collegiate students forward in their pursuit of careers in agriculture.
"This partnership will enhance the student search for internships and first full-time positions," said Mark Stewart, AFA president. "Internships are a vital step in the career development process. Through this partnership we look forward to continuing to provide resources to students to help them find and make the most of their internships. We want our students to know AgCareers.com is their go-to resources for job searches, and we want our partners to have a site to utilize if needed."
Through this partnership, AFA industry partners can post their internships free of charge through the AgCareers.com site. AFA will be actively encouraging students who participate in AFA programs to seek experiential opportunities through the AgCareers.com site. The two are working together to create more promotion of opportunities and remove barriers to searching for internships and first full-time positions.
"AgCareers.com is excited to strengthen our relationship with AFA. The experiences and opportunities they provide to young people within our industry develops top talent, and we're proud to be their preferred resource for discovering and connecting with career opportunities," shared Eric Spell, president of AgCareers.com. "This career success partnership is an integral component of our vision to feed the world with talent."
Additionally, AFA partner companies will have an exclusive opportunity to engage with selected AFA delegates from across the country in the first AFA/AgCareers.com Virtual Opportunity Fair. This opportunity will be held on Sept. 13, 2016.
