The U.S. Poultry Harold E. Ford Foundation (USPOULTRY Foundation) and the Poultry Science Association Foundation (PSA Foundation) are pleased to announce the 2nd annual, jointly sponsored Ph.D. and Vet Student Career Fair which will be held during the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), scheduled for February 12 - 14, 2019, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Ga. The Career Fair will be held 8:00 - 11:30 a.m., Tuesday, February 12 in conjunction with the International Poultry Scientific Forum (IPSF). This unique program is designed to better serve U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) member companies and allied suppliers, particularly involving, but not limited to, technology driven companies such as those in genetics, health, pharmaceutical and nutrition. The target participants are Post-Doctoral and early Ph.D. and vet students.
USPOULTRY, through the USPOULTRY Foundation, hosts a well-established and highly successful College Student Career Program during IPPE. The integral components of this outstanding program include interview opportunities with member companies and exhibitors for summer internship employment and entry level career positions for B.S. and M.S. students seeking employment in the poultry production, processing and allied supplier industry.
The Poultry Science Association (PSA) provides a career program focused primarily on academic career opportunities for graduate students, both M.S. and Ph.D., through the PSA website. The effort is supported by the PSA Hatchery, which is PSA's graduate student organization and the PSA Foundation primarily through the Giesen Internship Program for aspiring graduate students in conjunction with industry partners, endowed undergraduate scholarships, and through M.S. and Ph.D. Fellowships supported by Foundation donors through grants or endowments.
This is a great service our two organizations can provide to the poultry and allied industry, particularly those with needs in genetics, health, pharmaceutical and nutrition fields. Further, this opportunity is provided in one place at one time in conjunction with the IPSF, conveniently benefiting these exceptional students and industry companies seeking talented employees to provide for their next generation of scientific leadership.
Each company will receive a table and 2 chairs. We encourage you to bring literature, pop up banners, and/or other information about your company to give to prospective candidates.
