One doesn’t need to look far to find handfuls of reports on labor trends and the educational assets our graduates will need in order to fill jobs related to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) careers.

Join this session to hear from a young woman who works as an agronomist for a DuPont/ Pioneer in Iowa. She will tell your students how she got interested in the field and more importantly how she took advantage of her high school years to prepare for her career and her college education.

Her enthusiasm for the job is contagious. She'll discuss the fun and engaging aspects of the job as well as how her work allows for personal growth and development. Something she values in an employer. Today she is teaching other Pioneer employees as she pursues corporate training and development in addition to her other duties as an agronomist.

The career field looks promising for women so please encourage all your students to attend this great information ICN session. Register today!

Educators know that in grades seven and eight, Iowa schools are required to offer career education including exploration of career opportunities. This process is designed to help students complete a high school and career development plan.
