Afterwards relax and enjoy an amazing buffet with beverages, mingle with this year's Career Pathways participants, and participate in several fun contest holes like the chip and putt contests.

Career Pathways brings the best and brightest university students, along with faculty from various universities around the globe, to our industry’s events. Students are provided with numerous opportunities to network with industry professionals, attend customized workshops, tour facilities and walk the exposition floor. A career ambassador is assigned to each student to answer questions, introduce them to industry leaders and simply help them embrace the myriad of opportunities and rewards the produce and floral industry has to offer.
