Event Details

Join the University Career Center & The President's Promise on a Career Shuttle to the United States Department of Agriculture’s agency Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA APHIS) on October 18, 2019. 

This trip is open to all UMD students in all majors interested in exploring careers within animal health and welfare, plant protection, environmental policy, and international trade to name a few. The agency also hires communications majors, business majors, economists and IT specialists.

The visit will provide an overview of APHIS, a tour of their emergency operations facility, and small-group discussions with staff and alumni about employment opportunities. APHIS staff members will also lead an exercise to help you develop an “elevator pitch” about your career aspirations, which is useful for job interviews.
We require a government issued ID and request business casual attire 

Space is limited - please RSVP today and reserve October 18th from 9am to 12:30pm for the site visit. Due to limited space we will be enforcing our "no show" policy. Contact Christina Farmer immediately at if you register and are unable to attend.
