Cargill Career Night

How many of you are still looking for a job or summer internship? Or even just want some tips from industry professionals? Well there is a unique opportunity that everyone can take advantage of even if you aren’t in agriculture.

Next Wednesday, March 30th, the Purdue Dairy Club will be hosting Cargill Career Night on campus at 7p.m. Representatives from Cargill will be here to talk about personal branding and establishing yourself in the professional world. President of Dairy Club Keith Hoeing is helping plan the event and is excited to learn some new tips.

“They will have a representative speaking to us about this and I am sure they will more than happy to answer any other questions about their company,” said Hoeing.

Keith also went on to say that Cargill will be looking for candidates for either full-time positions or internships and will holding interviews on Thursday.

I know you all are probably thinking this is just going to be like any other boring presentation, but Cargill is a great company with a lot of opportunities and I really encourage everyone to come check it out.

In case you aren’t as familiar with Cargill as a company, I thought I would provide a little information from their website about what they do so you are up to speed before you get there.


Agriculture: They buy, process and distribute grain, oilseeds and other commodities to makers of food and animal nutrition products.

Food: They provide food and beverage manufacturers, foodservice companies and retailers with high-quality ingredients, meat and poultry products, and health-promoting ingredients.

Financial: They also provide agricultural, food, financial and energy customers around the world with risk management and financial solutions.

Industrial: Cargill serves industrial users of energy, salt, starch and steel products. We also develop and market sustainable products made from agricultural feedstocks.


Even though they are commonly known for as an agricultural company, they also have several jobs that’s which you don’t have to have an Ag degree for such as:

  • Law
  • Communications
  • Engineering

And many more!

So be sure to stop by the ASTL building near Lily Hall on Wednesday at 7p.m. to learn about some job opportunities!
