PMA A-NZ - Industry Talent

Overview

The PMA A-NZ Career Pathways Program

Designed to attract the best and brightest students to begin a career in the fresh produce industry, the PMA A-NZ Career Pathways program connects the Australian and New Zealand fresh produce industry to future leaders by providing ten university students the opportunity to attend PMA Fresh Connections Conference and Trade Show.

Scholarship students have the chance to network with industry professionals at all levels of their career, at workshops, social events and on the exposition floor. An industry mentor is assigned to each student to answer questions, introduce them to other industry professionals and simply help them embrace the myriad of opportunities and rewards the produce industry has to offer. Students are also given pre- or post-conference assignments to help them prepare for the event and add more value to the learning experience.
