The North Central NAMA Chapter hosted a Networking Event for professionals and students on Feb. 9, 2012. More than 70 students attended this event that involved roundtable discussions and a Career Fair.
The evening kicked off with roundtable discussions that included topics helping students prepare to find a job, as well as issues facing communications professionals. Students were able to attend four roundtable discussions during the hour.
Following the roundtables, a short career fair was held. Nearly 15 agribusiness companies and agencies were part of the career fair that allowed students to ask more specific questions about opportunities available within the individual organizations.
With the success of the first event, organizers are looking ahead to the next event. For more information on future events, contact Becca Yaklich, North Central NAMA Student Liaison Committee Chair, Becca.Yaklich@agribank.com.
