It’s called the ag warriors program, and it made its debut last year. This year, several exhibitors are hosting Ag Warrior interns who will learn about career opportunities in the agriculture industry. Interns will shadow sales teams, help with booth setup and tear down, give site tours and help staff exhibit space. In partnership with College of the Sequoias, the interns attended workshops to prepare for their internships. Topics included communication, goal setting, interviews and presentations. Ten interns are taking part in the opportunity this week. They come from three California colleges – College of the Sequoias; California State University, Chico and Porterville College.
