30/01/2015: USPOULTRY Foundation College Student Career Program breaks record at 2015 IPPE

The USPOULTRY Foundation College Student Career Program, held in conjunction with the 2015 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), attracted nearly 600 students from 38 universities throughout the United States, while the International Student Career Program brought in 18 students from nine universities. The graduating students interviewed for jobs and internships with 119 human resource representatives from 33 industry and allied firms. They were also able to visit the exhibit floor to see the most current technology used in today's industry.

“I heard about this great opportunity through my business fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi. I am a finance major, and I have been offered a great internship opportunity with one of the interviewing companies. This program and industry is new to Radford, but I'm so glad I came. Thank you for this great opportunity,” said Marie Ackah, student at Radford University in Virginia.

“The College Student Career Program had some of the best and brightest students this year. The industry as a whole should be very pleased with the caliber of students the universities are putting out,” remarked, David Jones, director of human resources for Perdue Farms in Salisbury, Md.

Commented Rashad Delph, director of candidate branding, pipeline strategy and global mobility for Tyson Foods, Inc, “The College Student Career Program allows us the opportunity to interview students and hire perspective team members to join the Tyson Foods organization. Each year the Program has grown to exceed our expectations, and the students are well prepared. The College Student Career Program is one of the few events we can collectively interview very knowledgeable domestic and international students from great agricultural universities from the U.S and aboard.”

“The 2015 USPOULTRY Foundation College Student Career Program interview session was a wonderful experience. There were many highly qualified students from across the country looking for internships and job opportunities. As usual, the interview event was very well organized, and I felt like I was able to get some good leads on some great prospects,” said Pat Allen, area human resource director for Pilgrim’s.

The USPOULTRY Foundation College Student Career Program, along with the International Student Program, gives companies an opportunity to interview top students for industry-related jobs and internships in one location, during a three-day period. The Program involves students from national and international universities and has been an important part of the hiring process for many companies for more than 40 years.
