2021 Networking and Career Fair

July 16 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

Networking and Career Fair

The annual Networking and Career Fair is an unique opportunity for students and young professionals to interact with top employers in the Washington, DC area. This career fair is free and open to the public. A broad range of federal/local government agencies, non-profits, and private sector employers have attended past CAPAL career fairs.

“I have attended CAPAL’s career fair for the past few years here in Washington DC.  I am always amazed at the caliber of talent I see each year.  The students are very well prepared to have meaningful discussions around their career goals, as well as intriguing insights into how and where they may fit into the mission of our organization.  I look forward to our continued support of this event and others at CAPAL.” –Tamieka Jones, AARP

For employers, the career fair is a unique opportunity to meet and recruit qualified students and young AANHPI professionals in the region.

 

“Every year is rewarding! USDA Rural Development (RD) has participated in CAPAL’s career fair for the past 3 years. The students and recent graduates that participate are of high caliber and seem genuinely interested in learning more about RD and what we do. Even when we do not have positions actively available, we still participate to provide outreach and information about our organization. RD is a proud supporter of CAPAL and looks forward to participating in the career fair next year and years to come!” –Dominique Brown, RD Student Employment Programs Manager

The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) administers programs that create domestic and international marketing opportunities for U.S. producers of food, fiber, and specialty crops. AMS also provides the agriculture industry with valuable services to ensure the quality and availability of wholesome food for consumers across the country.

Nearly 4,000 AMS professionals work every day to support the country’s diverse agricultural operations, which range from individual farmers to international businesses and employ 1 in 12 people. AMS services and its millions of dollars in annual grant investments also create opportunities by supporting economic development in small towns and rural communities that stand as the backbone of American values.

Much of the agency’s support for agriculture is provided through commodity-specific efforts, such as its Dairy; Specialty Crops; Livestock and Poultry; and Cotton and Tobacco Programs. AMS also oversees the National Organic Program; Science and Technology Program; and the Transportation and Marketing Program. AMS also provides regulatory oversight for over 20 research and promotion programs, and enforces other Federal regulations such as the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA) and the Seed Act.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was founded in 1901 and is now part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. NIST is one of the nation’s oldest physical science laboratories. Congress established the agency to remove a major challenge to U.S. industrial competitiveness at the time—a second-rate measurement infrastructure that lagged behind the capabilities of the United Kingdom, Germany, and other economic rivals.

From the smart electric power grid and electronic health records to atomic clocks, advanced nanomaterials, and computer chips, innumerable products and services rely in some way on technology, measurement, and standards provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Today, NIST measurements support the smallest of technologies to the largest and most complex of human-made creations—from nanoscale devices so tiny that tens of thousands can fit on the end of a single human hair up to earthquake-resistant skyscrapers and global communication networks.
