“Bridging the Gap” Provides New Opportunities for Hereford Youth
The National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) is excited for Bridging the Gap to make its debut at the 2019 Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE).
Taking place Monday, July 8, and Tuesday, July 9, 2019, in Denver, this college and career fair will bring colleges and employers to Herefords on the Hill where members can engage in one-on-one interactions with industry representatives. Hereford juniors can get a head start on their future career by making connections at this two-day event in the Stadium Arena Link.
The purpose of this event is for juniors to begin their college and career search early while learning about internship and job opportunities. Recruiters and brand representatives will be on hand to help guide youth as they begin making decisions that will influence their future.
To prepare for Bridging the Gap, high school- and college-aged members are encouraged to think about potential college majors and careers of interest. This forethought will help industry representatives connect and align juniors with the best fit possible. For members who are starting early in a college search, this event will be a great opportunity to start learning about colleges with an agriculture program.
“Hereford juniors are highly regarded and represent the utmost in talent,” says Nathan Hopkins, NJHA membership chair. “What better way to feed their potential than provide avenues for education, internships, careers and future endeavors?”
This new experience will bridge the gap for many Hereford youth looking to further their education or to find a career in an agriculture-related field. Each year at the JNHE, Bridging the Gap will feature new colleges and careers unique to the area. Juniors should arrive in Denver prepared to start their path to success for their future career.
