Career Fairs

To help members identify promising young talent, FPSA is collaborating with universities to help connect students with potential employers.

As part of this initiative, we have identified several programs with strong engineering and food science departments and are highlighting Career Fair events on their campuses. Members are encouraged to add these dates to their recruitment plans and sign up directly with the university to participate in their spring hiring events. As these events are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, interested members should sign up sooner rather than later.
