This year, we are excited to offer a two day Ag Showcase, providing you the option to recruit students on Thursday, Friday, or both days.  Cal Poly’s Agribusiness Management and National Agri-Marketing Association (ABM/NAMA) Club presents the annual Ag Showcase. With over 95 companies in attendance, students are given the opportunity to communicate and network with company representatives from a wide range of fields in the industry. Ag Showcase not only provides Cal Poly students with opportunities for internships and careers, but also allows companies to showcase their company and meet with potential employees.
