Purdue College of Ag grads fare well in job market

Purdue College of Agriculture grads continue to have success finding jobs.

A recent survey indicates 86% of May 2011 graduates found employment.

That compares with 85% in 2010 and 83% in 2009.

The technical director of the Hanor Company, one of the nation’s leading pork producers, says young professionals should be patient and resilient when first entering the work force.

Dr. Dean Boyd says having a clear cut career vision as an undergrad is easier said than done.

He made the comments during a College of Ag forum on the Purdue campus.

The keynote address was part of the Book Harmon Leadership Program’s forum on animal agriculture.
