The Poultry Industry Council collaborated with the University of Guelph’s Poultry Club to complete this initiative.
Goal of the Project: To promote turkey industry careers to recent high school, college and university graduates as well as individuals who are looking to change fields or research jobs and careers available within the turkey industry.
Students from the Poultry Club interviewed industry personnel and wrote descriptions for each of the jobs featured on the website. The students contributed to this project to earn a credit, which gave them more knowledge and hands-on experience in the turkey side of the poultry industry than a normal university course would have allowed.
An interactive and engaging website was created that will provide more information regarding the careers and specific requirements and skills that are needed. It also features some of the interviews that were filmed. Click on link to go to Turkey Careers website.
