A veteran’s job search can be intimidating, especially if you haven’t been in the civilian workforce for a while. A veteran’s job search in agriculture may be equally so if you’re new to the industry. However, AgCareers.com and our Ag Warriors partner employers have had a longstanding commitment to aid military veterans in their agricultural job search. Check out some of the ways veterans can easily search for jobs in agriculture utilizing AgCareers.com:
Military Veterans Virtual Career Fair
AgCareers.com is excited to present our first ever virtual career fair exclusively for military professionals and veterans on November 9, 2017. Join us from 10 am to 4 pm Eastern to visit with employers like CHS, DuPont, Farm Credit Services of America, Hogan Trucking, Tyson Foods, and Valent USA about available opportunities in agriculture. This is an event like none other currently available. A veteran’s job search is always made easier with career fair opportunities, and a virtual career fair makes it possible to connect with employers without leaving your home. We look forward to visiting with you on November 9!
AgCareers.com took over the Ag Warriors program from the International Agri-Center in 2012 and has since carried it forward to create a campaign between our veteran job seekers and committed Ag Warrior employers. AgCareers.com’s Ag Warriors program makes a veteran’s job search easier by providing a special community to join that will get you recognized by employers. It works like this: create an account on AgCareers.com and while filling out the prompts, be sure to check the box marked “Ag Warriors” under “Organizations.” AgCareers.com employers who have pledged to actively support Ag Warriors will then know when you apply to any of their open positions that you are an Ag Warrior. Learn more about this unique program available only on AgCareers.com.
There are always unique opportunities to amplify a veteran’s job search in agriculture, but we like to think that these opportunities jumpstart your ability to effectively market yourself as a military veteran to agricultural employers. Be sure to join us November 9 for our virtual career fair exclusively for military veterans and professionals, and check out our Ag Warriors program on AgCareers.com.
