As our mission statement is to provide global talent solutions in agriculture and food, we strive each day to better our products to aid your business in attracting and retaining talent in agriculture. Learn about these popular tools that we have created with our employer clients in mind.
1. Job Board
This is probably the most obvious answer because our job board is the heart of our business. Employers can post job openings for 60 days and we do the work for you! Applications go straight to your email or to your apply links online.
You may not know that AgCareers.com also offers training/consulting on many topics such as Generational differences, Leadership Enhancement, Building internship programs and much more! Plus if you have a specific need we don’t have listed we can customize a session to fit your needs.
3. Compensation Benchmark Review
This confidential tool serves the unique needs of the agribusiness industry in salary benchmarking. Clients can choose to focus on general trends or sector specific reporting. They will also receive location specific information such as region/state/city, urban vs rural and company size.

6. Career Guide
This has to be one of my favorite products because I get to hand it to the new set of career professionals at the Career fairs and experienced talent at trade shows. We know that printed material may seem out dated but I see first-hand how excited people get to take something and flip through it to keep! Of course we have the online edition as well but students and professional still enjoy good marketing at their fingertips.
7. Virtual Career Fairs
Are you unable to travel to every career fair and trade show across the US you would like to attend? Does your time not allow for multiple days of travel? Our virtual career fairs allow you access to job seekers from the comfort of your office. Plus it is convenient for job seekers as well that may not can attend those events for the same reason!
8. Internship Benchmark Survey
Do you have an internship program? If so it is a no brainer to participate in our survey! Interns participate in an evaluation both at the beginning and end of their experience. We find the participants are a little more honest when being asked the questions from a third party and they aren’t worried about ruining their chances of a job offer. This analysis also allows employers an opportunity to gauge student expectations and deliverables. Not only do you get to review what your own interns expect but you see the expectations of interns throughout the industry.
Do you need training on hot topics in agriculture but don’t have the time to travel to everything offered? AgCareers.com offers webinars and workshops online you can attend on your lunch break! With topics that are sure to be top of mind in the industry such as Campus Recruiting, Generation Z, and Keeping Negativity Out of the Workplace.
10. Ag & Food HR Roundtable
Our annual Roundtable brings industry HR professionals and Collegiate Representatives/Career services staff together for a networking opportunity. Our advisory committee comprised of peers in the industry work to ensure topics are of high interest that you will find nowhere else!
