Cornhusker Economics (June 26, 2013)
During the Spring of 2012, a survey was sent to the alumni of the Department of Agricultural Economics, for the main purpose of collecting information to assist students and aid in student recruitment. We surveyed 2,899 potential alumni and had 789 responses.
At the end of the survey we asked, “What advice would you give our students that wanted to follow your career choice?” Responses were varied, but centered on the following six themes:
Develop Leadership Skills by Engaging in Extracurricular Activities
Develop Communication Skills
Challenge Yourself in Your Schooling
This article will focus on internships and extracurricular activities.
