I offer career resources and networking connections to job-seekers in the agricultural industry. This includes search, placement, recruiting, job postings, training, and consulting. I am willing to connect with teachers and their classrooms to provide background information for lesson content or do a virtual classroom visit via Skype.
Collaboration between industry and education is vital to both parties. For us in industry, we benefit from a direct connection to future employees, customers, and partners. For educators, this allows for input to ensure that content is relevant to preparing tomorrow’s industry leaders.
There continues to be a shortage of qualified employees in agriculture. However, this industry is constantly changing, and positions that will be in demand tomorrow are not the same as those that we needed yesterday. This makes constant communication vital between industry representatives like myself and educators.
