The relationship-building Student Career Center at the 2011 Mid-America Horticultural Trade Show (Mid-Am) will take place at the show's new location at Chicago's Navy Pier on Friday, Jan. 21. The Student Career Center attracts more than 600 horticulture students from throughout the Midwest who meet with prospective industry employers to ask questions, learn more about their companies and make important connections. Both employers and students benefit by getting to know each other in an informal atmosphere.

Invitations have been distributed to more than 250 colleges, universities and trade/technical schools that have horticultural education programs. Full-time students enrolled in valid horticulture programs who have shown an interest in pursuing a career in the industry, including high school seniors, are eligible to attend.

Representatives from industry companies will be conducting preliminary interviews for internships, summer jobs and full-time positions. To help spread the word about the Student Career Center among horticulture instructors and students and to facilitate event registration, Mid-Am has updated the Student Career Center page.

There is no cost for instructors and their students to attend the 2011 Student Career Center. Students are also invited to attend the trade show for a reduced registration fee of $10 per student and must register at the show to receive the discounted entrance fee.

Horticulture instructors who have not received information from Mid-Am and wish to bring their students to the Student Career Center on Friday, Jan. 21 are encouraged to contact Mid-Am at mail@midam.org or call 800.223.8761.
