Career Connections    
Career Connections joins our 13,000 members to current positions available with our Strategic Partners. 

Dear Strategic Partners,

Do you offer internships or shadowing opportunities?  Are you in need of hard working and dedicated employees?  The Pennsylvania FFA Association membership is over 13,000 strong, which means we may be able to help you find the right person for your organization. The Pennsylvania FFA Foundation is now offering you, our strategic partners, the convenience of advertising current job openings, internships or job shadowing opportunities on our website. 

We are providing the opportunity to advertise on our website free of charge, to say thank you for continuing to be our strategic partner.  All we need from you is a link to your career page or you may choose to send us a specific job posting/ad.  Either way, we’ll be sure to add it to our Career Connections and Opportunities section of our website, which can be found at www.paffa.org/foundation.

Why advertise on the Pennsylvania FFA Foundation website? In addition to our strong numbers, our members boost communication and leadership skills, strong interpersonal and teamwork skills, and demonstrate critical thinking skills; abilities that were obtained through the FFA.  Our alumni have gone on to become ag industry leaders, teachers, professors, laborers, farmers, lobbyists and mechanics.  We hope that you will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to connect directly with past and present FFA members.

If you’re ready to get started, send us a weblink or an advertisement for a current job posting, internship or job shadowing opportunity toaisenberg@paffafoundation.org.

If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Sparks atssparks@paffafoundation.org.
