One of the biggest challenges employers in the agriculture industry face is finding and retaining talent. This is where AgCareers.com comes in! The AgCareers.com job board is unique in that it allows employers to post their jobs, exposing these opportunities to candidates with agriculture backgrounds, knowledge and/or education. These candidates apply directly to these opportunities, connecting employers with the right talent. Additionally, employers have another tool at their disposal, the AgCareers.com resume database. Many candidates are open to new job opportunities but are not necessarily actively applying to open positions, so they will post their resumes in the AgCareers.com database, where potential employers can contact them.
In Canada, I have been lucky to work with some fantastic employers who are looking for talent to fill exciting job opportunities in agriculture. One of the most successful sectors of agriculture for filling positions using AgCareers.com has been Agronomy. One recent success story is Allam Farms Partnership, located in Ardrossan, Alberta. Allam Farms grows wheat and canola, and in the past has grown a variety of crops such as peas, lentils, barley, faba beans, oats and hay. New to 2016 is malt barley! They are a thriving business having experienced exponential growth over the past few years and AgCareers.com has been pleased to assist on the recruitment side!
Chris Allam, Chief Operating Officer at Allam Farms posted an Agronomist position on AgCareers.com and found his successful candidate in the resume database on his first day! The majority of employers using AgCareers.com to source talent find success through direct applications to their posting and Chris was pleased to have found a candidate so early in his search. Says Chris,
“AgCareers.com has been more successful for us in finding professionals than free sites, as the quality of resumes is much higher.”
AgCareers.com is pleased to be able to connect quality talent with our employer clients and look forward to forging more successful relationships in the future! Check out our advertising rates and easily post a job online today.
