Agrimarketing : Canadian Agribusiness Employer Guide 08
AGRIBUSINESS EMPLOYER GUIDE 2 August 2008 Welcome to the first annual Canadian specific Agribusiness Employer Guide from AgCareers.com and AgriMarketing magazine. We are very pleased to be offering a piece that is tailored and specific for students within the agri- business industry in Canada. We at AgCareers.com hope that you have got- ten your school year off to a great start and are looking ahead to the upcom- ing internship (summer work experience) and job search season. It is never too early to start reviewing companies and job opportunities! 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 14 employer profiles and six helpful articles/ resources to help you along your journey. The Agribusiness Employer Guide was developed to help students better understand the com- panies and careers that are offered within the agribusiness and food industry. From these pro- files, you’ll learn what our employer advertisers do, what types of jobs they offer, company cul- ture, 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. Kathryn Doan Also, students will find helpful articles throughout, such as “The Booming Careers of Cana- dian Agriculture” and “It’s Your Turn to Ask the Questions.” If you are considering pursuing 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. As many have predicted, there is going to be a gap in jobs available and people available to fill them within the next five years due to baby boomer retirement and the lack of people within younger generations. Also, the agricultural industry is advancing and creating a number of new jobs. 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 opportunities 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 three $100 cash prizes. 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 — the Agribusiness Employer Guide is being published online. For an online copy, a copy of the U.S. edition, 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 Canadian 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!
