Each semester CASNR Career Services plans group externship experiences for CASNR students to assist them with learning about the background and real world practices of agricultural and natural resources-related businesses, with exploring career opportunities, and with developing their professional networks. Organizations provide:
· An overview of their organization,
· An understanding of potential internship and/or fulltime career options/opportunities,
· A perspective of how various functions and specific positions within an organization connect and collaborate to accomplish the businesses’ mission, and
· Any additional “real world” words of wisdom or recommendations of benefit to college students planning to pursue a variety of careers in the agriculture and natural resources fields.
