National Ag Day on March 22 was created to promote and educate about agriculture. It’s a day to help people understand how food, fiber, and renewable resource products are produced. It’s also a day to promote career opportunities in agriculture, food, fiber, and renewable resource industries.
Here’s how to begin with Explore Occupations. Select In Demand Occupations or Occupation Groups and look at careers under Farming, Forestry, Fishing and Hunting, as well as Professional, Science & Technical.
Example of some of the careers listed are agricultural equipment operators, animal scientists, farm equipment mechanics and service technicians, farmers, ranchers & other agricultural managers. Explore areas such as crop, nursery and greenhouse, aquaculture animals, pesticide handlers, landscape architect, and food science technicians.
Selecting one of these occupations will provide wage trends, knowledge, skills/tools and technology, education, tasks and activities, training, and available jobs. All to help guide someone to find out more about a career path.
There’s a Find a Career Match with two quizzes: Interest Matcher and Skills Matcher. Also find Job & Career Accelerator video guides.
