Demand for CALS grads is stronger than ever.
USDA forecasts demand for college graduates in agriculture and food industries to be 57,900 a year.
American agricultural colleges only produce 35,400 graduates a year – employers need more agricultural graduates.
Six months after graduation, 41% of graduates were working in their chosen field1. 34% were attending graduate or professional school2.
Many fields have more jobs than we have graduates:
- Agricultural business management and economics
- Agricultural education
- Agricultural engineering
- Animal and poultry science and production
- Crop science and production
- Horticultural science and production
- Food science and processing
- Plant biology
- Soil science and land use
We help prepare and connect CALS students with employers seeking well-trained talent. Put us to work for you!
