Find your fit at Cultivate a Career

Over the summer, we gave you a preview of the new Cultivate a Career exhibit at this year’s fair. Sunday, Baby Goat and I took a tour to discover all the great activities the exhibit offers visitors. Check out the video below of our experience:

Upon entering the exhibit, head for one of the laptop stations and take an interest test. This test is designed to help you get a better idea of the types of jobs you would enjoy most. After finishing, the computer gives you a personality score you can use to guide yourself through the rest of the exhibit.

With your score in hand, you can check out informational signs, watch videos and speak to career counselors and industry representative about jobs in the agriculture industry that fit your personality traits. Each sign and video also features a QR code that you can scan with any smartphone to get additional information directly on your phone.

Whether you’re still in school, a new college graduate or well into your career, the Cultivate a Career exhibit will help you find your fit in the agriculture industry.

About Tilt-A-Whirl

Jeff Miles interned for the N.C. State Fair in 2011. This is his bio from that year: People usually call me Jeff Miles but when asked what my favorite part of Fair was, rides was the first thing that came to mind--so call me Tilt-A-Whirl from here on out. I've always been a big fan of the State Fair and I'm really excited to be working here this summer. I'll be bringing you weekly updates on the goings on at the fairgrounds and hopefully much more. I can't wait to see you all in October (and hopefully before)!
