Testimonials

Stories about students who attended the Ag Career Day and acquired internships and jobs as a result of contacts they made.
Matthew Leise accompanied Cargill nutritionists onto farms where they would evaluate and discuss the agricultural operations. He learned a lot from talking to the farmers and animal nutritionists about how producers collect their milk and protect its quality.

The typical procedure for most students applying for a job or internship these days starts by applying online, and then later, they hope, getting an in-person interview. But Matthew Leise was able to short-circuit the process at Ag Career Day — and he was greatly rewarded.

During the internship, Azzara saw concepts he learned in his food science classes applied in  real-world situations. He helped to develop new ice cream flavors that should be in stores in 2017.
