Your agency/organization can provide career information to future employees and meet with our next generation of applied economics leaders.  If your agency is interested in participating please RSVP by July 20, 2012.

C-FARE and the USDA Economists Group are working together to better reach the next generation of agricultural and applied economists.  We are organizing several joint events for students that are interning in Washington, DC with an interest in agricultural, natural resources, food, and applied economics areas.

On July 27, C-FARE and USDA Economists Group will host a breakfast and Career Fair for interns in Washington, DC that have an interest in agricultural and applied economics. The event will be held in the back of the USDA South Building Cafeteria. The students who will be in attendance are graduate and undergraduate level students, most have an interest in economics or agribusiness, and their intern host organizations include the range of agencies at USDA, offices on Capitol Hill, and private sector organizations. 

In order to make this event as successful as possible, please have information available that will be of interest to students, such as:
  • information on internships provided by your agency,
  • information on entry level jobs within your agency, and
  • general agency information, and
  • people from your agency there to talk to students about what it is like to work at USDA.

The set up time will be 7:00-8:00 AM, with tables opening at 9:30 AM. From 9:30-11:00AM, students will have the opportunity to browse the tables and speak with organization representatives. We anticipate about 50 students will attend.  Encourage your agency to come out and support the next generation of economists by participating in this event.  It could help you identify outstanding future employees!
