This annual event will have over 30 agriculture companies and organization looking to find their next intern and employee. Some of our sponsors that are looking to fill positions include John Deere, Monsanto, ConAgra, Pioneer, Carhartt, USDA, American Farm Bureau, BASF, Case IH, Kraft Foods, and Elanco.

While I know many students will not be able to attend our convention and the Expo, I did want to extend the opportunity for students to submit their resumes to us. Students can send their resumes to and they will be added to our resume book that will be given to all of our sponsors. It is our way of helping every agriculture student find a job or internship in order to be as prepared as possible for the day they graduate.
