What do you enjoy about working with AgCareers.com?
I enjoy having the freedom to take the lead on a wide variety of tasks. Through this, I am getting valuable experiences outside of what I would get in the typical classroom while having the help of the friendly AgCarees.com team when needed.
What advice would you give to job seekers using AgCareers.com for the first time?
Take advantage of the advanced search options but don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone. There are countless job postings on the site and one you never would have thought of might be the perfect fit. Remember to add your resume and cover letter for even more positive exposure!

Overall, I’m just looking forward to learning as much as a can and connecting with others during my time with AgCareers.com.
In your spare time, what do you like to do on the weekends?
On the weekends I like to relax with friends and travel around to any livestock related events in the area. I also love spending extra time hanging out with my best dog friend, Creo.
What’s your favorite snack and name one thing you can’t live without while working?
My favorite snack is either fresh fruit or Goldfish crackers. I find dry lips super distracting, so I can’t live without chapstick while working (Blistex medicated lip balm is the best).
Favorite book & favorite movie?
I like any sort of suspenseful fiction book and my favorite movie currently is The Greatest Showman
