PURDUE UNIVERSITY BECOMES A STRATEGIC CORPORATE SPONSOR ON PIGCAREERS.COM
Source: Purdue University news release

PigCareers.com the leading Pork Industry Careers website is pleased to welcome Purdue University's Department of Animal Sciences as a Corporate Sponsor for the Student Jobs section. This addition creates a perfect match between one of the leading University programs that graduates 125 Animal Science students annually, and a website focused solely educating and promoting only Pork Industry Careers.

Online career sites are standard for most industries, just not for the Pork Industry which makes PigCareers.com so unique. Rather than just providing "Job Posting Opportunities", PigCareers.com launched a corporate support/marketing program in 2011 where companies can market products through Banner Ads, Sponsored Pages, and email marketing along with other Sponsor support services.

The success has spread with Veterinary Clinics, Swine Research Companies, and Job Placement Agencies utilizing this type of marketing approach, but after several years of development PigCareers.com was able to secure a working collaboration with one of the leading Universities in North America.

The University partnership with Purdue Animal Sciences was vital to connect new graduates with entry level positions to initiate their careers in the pork industries. And PigCareers.com is a resource to help students achieve their career goals.

It is the perfect fit for Purdue Animal Sciences to be recognized as a "supporter of Swine industry careers" but to also promote student success and showcase tips, flyers, and other information to help enhance their potential employment and facilitate a flourishing career.

Jim Eadie from PigCareers.com talks about the vision. "We have had over 20% traffic growth from 2011 to 2012; to continue to build momentum for our corporate program we approached Purdue about a unique opportunity to build value together.

This was easy to achieve since it is both organizations goal is create more jobs in our industry and showcase how many different types of jobs are available, and continue to focus on positivity and growth in North America for Swine jobs. We thank Purdue for seeing the value and sponsoring important sites like PigCareers.com

"Sponsoring student employment opportunities is aligned with Purdue's progressive goals for success of our graduates, and we see ourselves as a leader in that area"- notes Alan Mathew, Professor and Head at Purdue. "You can view our program information on the Student Jobs page http://pigcareers.com/category/student/ along with other key information in the PigCareers.com monthly newsletter.

We believe in the digital technology PigCareers.com offers for career information, and making it as easy as possible for job seekers and prospective students to gain knowledge and empower their future careers."

PigCareers.com is the leading online Human Resource Connection for the entire pork industry, since its inception launch in 2008 it has been a vital connection to employment and networking for the Pork Industry with over 25,000 page views monthly and access to hundreds of Swine industry jobs.
