Ten is the magic number for new talent in the fresh produce industry. The Center for Growing Talent by PMA recently launched the 10 for Talent fundraising campaign with a goal to get 10,000 produce and floral professionals to give $10 in celebration of their 10 years growing talent in the industry. DMA is excited to support this effort and we encourage you to do the same!
So to keep the magic 10s coming, we wanted to share 10 tips for connecting with and strengthening young talent coming into your organization:
- Identify potential talent by actively engaging with college communities and offering to speak at student organizations about the industry. You can also post job opportunities to the organization Facebook and Twitter pages, and offer to mentor students at local universities.
