Welcome to CALS Career Services

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!
