Your Future in Ag: A Conversation with US Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack

Webinar & Virtual Career Fair

Monday, Oct 4th

This year's program featured a virtual “Fireside Chat” with Sam Farr, former US Congressmember from the Central Coast, and US Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack discussing USDA programs and careers in agriculture.

The discussion was followed US Congressman Jimmy Panetta moderating a panel of leaders from USDA agencies responding to questions submitted by students and sharing some of the specific work of the agencies with an emphasis on jobs.

A virtual Career Fair was hosted by CSUMB, Hartnell, and USDA staff representatives in breakout rooms where students heard about internships and career opportunities, and participated in Q & A with panel participants.

Greater Vision is an annual event addressing contemporary issues in agriculture and society. The program is designed for students, professionals, and community members and is a collaboration of the Grower-Shipper Association Foundation and the College of Business and College of Science at California State University Monterey Bay.
