What advice would you give to job seekers utilizing AgCareers.com for the first time?
I don’t interact with job seekers directly on a one-on-one basis, but I would like to advise them to understand that the agriculture and food industry is one of the top growing industries with many job opportunities. We are the leading job board in agriculture with more than 5,000 jobs posted each month, so every job seeker who is seeking opportunities in agriculture must visit AgCareers.com.
What is one of your favorite memories while working with AgCareers.com?
I have only been with AgCareers.com for less than a year, but AgCareers.com gave me an opportunity to attend the Adobe ColdFusion Summit 2016 in Las Vegas and I think that is my favorite memory thus far.
In your spare time, what do you like to do on weekends?
I emigrated from India to Canada last winter, so this country is still new for me. So in my spare time, I love to go outside to visit different places, take long drives, and much more. I am very curious about health and fitness, so I enjoy going to the gym as well. I love watching movies and sometimes cooking a little bit in my spare time.
What is your favorite snack and name one thing you can’t live without while working?
Anything high in protein and low in fat is my favorite snack. Chicken snacks are top among them, and I can’t live without coffee.
Favorite book and favorite movie?
I don’t read much, but I liked Veronika Decides to Die. My favorite movie is Titanic.
