Agrimarketing : Agribusiness Employer Guide 2008
AGRIBUSINESS EMPLOYER GUIDE 2 August 2008 Welcome back for the 2nd Annual Agribusiness Employer Guide from AgCareers.com and AgriMarketing magazine. We at AgCareers.com hope that you have gotten your school year off to a great start and are looking ahead to the upcoming internship and job search season. It is never too early to start reviewing companies and job opportunities whether it is for a full-time career or an internship. We are excited to once again bring you an even greater resource to help you explore your career options with the 2008 Agribusiness Employer Guide. This year’s guide features 24 employer profiles and ten helpful articles/ resources to help you along your journey. The Agribusiness Employer Guide was developed to help students better understand the companies and careers that are offered within the agribusi- ness and food industry. From these profiles, you’ll learn what our employer advertisers do, what types of jobs they offer, company culture, how to connect with the employer, and much more. The Agribusiness Employer Guide allows students the opportunity to comparatively look at a number of top employers and see where they fit best. Also, students will find helpful articles throughout, such as “Making a Great First Impres- sion” and “What Benefits Should I Expect from My Internship?” If you are considering pursu- ing an advanced degree, we have provided a list of MBA programs requesting to be included in the guide and is a good overall look at some of the great options students have to continue their education. Eric Spell As we mentioned in last year’s edition, there is going to be a gap in jobs available and peo- ple available to fill them within the next five years. This is a great opportunity for students and young professionals of today, as it gives you a true opportunity to seek a company, not just the job that is the best fit for you. Don’t keep the guide to yourself — there are plenty of job oppor- tunities to go around and our industry is better as a whole if we recruit and retain great people. This year, AgCareers.com is holding a “Great Job Search Tip” contest and we will be award- ing five $100 Visa gift cards. Within the Agribusiness Employer Guide you’ll find a tear out post- card with directions on how to access the Web site, which contains a few questions about you as well as an area to provide your tip. We encourage every reader of the Employer Guide to partici- pate as winners will be selected at random and not necessarily based on the best tip. However, some of the “Best Job Search Tips” will be featured in AgCareers.com newsletters as well as the 2009 Agribusiness Employer Guide. Be creative! One other note that is new for this year — the Agribusiness Employer Guide is being published online. For an online copy, a copy of the Canadian edition (published for the first time this year) or for questions about the guide, please look for the Employer Guide graphic on the homepage or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope that you find the 2008 U. S. Agribusiness Employer Guide helpful and be sure to check out great internship and job opportunities on www.AgCareers.com! Best wishes for a great school year! Sincerely, Eric Spell, President AgCareers.com
