NAMA is looking for a few good professionals to participate in the Student Mentor Luncheon at the upcoming 2005 Agri-Marketing Conference & Trade Show in Phoenix. Here’s NAMA’s call for help, along with contact information:
Students hungry for advice (and lunch) need you! This event was a success last year in Kansas City and we hope to improve it this year with more students, more professionals and more quality interaction time.
Don’t miss your chance to come face-to-face with topnotch employee candidates! In an effort to provide students with an opportunity to connect with professionals about careers and job opportunities, we are organizing this event during the Thursday, April 21, tradeshow luncheon from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. in Phoenix.
All you need to do is click here to sign up: Mentor. Then, show up at the luncheon, sit at the designated Student Mentor Luncheon tables and chat your heart out with the students for 60-90 minutes. For this effort, you’ll gain the satisfaction of knowing you’ve helped a young person along his/her way and you will gain one more special ribbon on your NAMA badge when you check in at registration. This year we are going to provide table tents with your name, company and location as a way to more quickly start the conversation.
Organized by the NAMA Careers Committee, the luncheon is intended to:
Provide students with the opportunity hand out resumes and business cards.
Provide professionals with an opportunity to interact with students and answer student questions.
Mentors and students are welcome to keep in touch, however, there will be no specific responsibilities designated for the mentors after the meeting.
If you have any questions, please contact Myrna Krueger, NAMA Careers Committee. 952-852-6291.
So, don’t forget to sign up to be a NAMA Student Mentor at Phoenix in April 2005!
