At AgCareers.com, we really stress to our audience (and our employees) the importance of career education. While many of us are often caught up in our professional lives, it’s important to remember continued growth. A great way to continue to learn about the agricultural field as well as professional development is to follow particular social media accounts geared toward your interests as well as career preparation. The following are some social media accounts that I would recommend if you are interested in becoming a more well-rounded professional ready for anything from writing a resume, an interview, or your first performance review. Or just follow some of these accounts to get a better idea of what your industry is really like.
Shameless plug: follow AgCareers.com on our available social networks. Whether you’re looking for career development and preparation or agricultural knowledge, you’ll find it all with AgCareers.com. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and YouTube. Also, if you’re interested in relocating to or already reside in Australia, we have an AgCareers.com Australia Twitter account.
