The problems of individual farmers in Iowa aren’t carrying over to Iowa State University graduates looking for jobs in agriculture. Some 145 employers are in Ames today to look for potential employees at ISU’s College of Agriculture Career Day. Career services director, Mike Gaul, says there’s a lot for graduates to chose from. He says industries dealing with food are the hottest right now.Gaul says students will get a first chance to interview today, and many will start deciding on summer internships. Gaul says the heavy-duty push for graduates comes in the next few weeks as they’ll have 6 to 800 interviews.Iowa political leaders are trying to figure out how to keep graduates in Iowa. Gaul says that’s not been a problem for ag grads. Gaul says the career day runs from 9:30 a-m until 3:30 p-m today at the ISU Memorial Union.
