12th annual career and internship fair at the Chico State farm, at which ag students from the university as well as Shasta College and other area community colleges were able to meet face to face with prospective employers.
In the photos, from the top: Tyler Bramble, a Fresno-based regional manager for the Alltech feed additive company, Maria Vieyra, a human resources representative for the Driscoll's berry company, and Jeff DeClue, a Driscoll's recruiter, all talk to students about internships and job opportunities; and College of Agriculture dean Dave Daley (left) talks with Shasta College alum Garrett Wallis, the student herdsman for the beef unit at Chico State, about herd management.
That last photo was part of a shoot I did with Daley after interviewing him for a major report on the latest developments in the somewhat controversial use of antibiotics in livestock, including a council of scientists' recent report to President Obama and continuing efforts to pass state legislation restricting the practice. Daley is a rancher and vice chair of the California Cattlemen's Association, and he's been working on the antibiotics issue on a national level for several years.
Watch for my coverage of the career fair soon at CapitalPress.com, where you'll find my piece on antibiotics later next week. In the meantime, blog posts should pick up again after I send my project to my editors.
