Krishibid Institution Bangladesh (KIB) is set to organize the two-day-long “Agro Career Expo 2017” on November 29.
This is the first ever career expo for agricultural university students at the national-level. The career expo will be jointly organised by KIB and Swisscontact Katalyst, which is a leading market system development project under the Ministry of Commerce and funded by the UK government, SDC and Danida.
The objective of Agro Career Expo 2017 is to create a bridge between agriculture university graduates and private sector employers.
The two-day event will be comprised of a career fair as well as professional development sessions. More than 100 companies from agribusiness and other sectors have booked stalls to participate in the fair.
Since May 2017, a dedicated sub-committee within KIB has been actively overseeing the planning and preparation for Agro Career Expo 2017. As a part of the lead up to the event, campus awareness programs and road shows were held in seven leading agricultural universities of the country.
