Ag career day points the way


California State University-Chico's College of Agriculture held its eighth annual career fair for students today, and 35 vendors participated -- up from 27 a year ago, fair coordinator Susie Funk said.

"It seems like more jobs are coming available and more internships," she said. "We have several new companies this year that have never been here."

Students walked around the pavilion at the university farm and talked to representatives of seed companies, nut growers, poultry farms, the USDA's veterinary services office and other industry representatives.

"I think it's great," said student Jessica Cook, 21, of Santa Rosa. "It gives us an opportunity (to meet prospective employers). It kind of forces us to go out, too."
