AgCareers.com

 

AgCareers.com was formed in 2003 via a merger between AgCareers, a print newsletter originally started in 1995, and Jobhog.net. Over the past 16 years AgCareers.com has developed into the leading ag-specific job board for recruitment advertising. AgCareers.com is headquartered in Clinton, NC with additional operations in Iowa, California, USA; Guelph, Ontario, Canada; Melbourne, Australia and continues to grow its international presence.

The AgCareers.com team is comprised of 18 enthusiastic and passionate team members who all share a passion for providing tools to help employers and job seekers connect with careers in agriculture. These team members work in roles such as sales, marketing, technology development, data collection and administrative support, led by the company’s president, Eric Spell.

AgCareers.com is committed to developing the pipeline of talent within agriculture. This is evident as each year the company employs various collegiate students for summer internships in sales and marketing roles. Additionally, the company manages a campus ambassador program for students to promote the AgCareers.com brand on university and college campuses during the school year.

The website serves two main types of clients, companies looking to hire and job seekers looking for opportunities. AgCareers.com provides their employer clientele with job posting packages that allow them to market their opportunities to a diverse yet targeted candidate pool. Employers can also purchase access to the website’s online resume database of candidates as well as have the opportunity to leverage their employer brand online.

For job seekers, AgCareers.com provides free access to a user-friendly, industry specific job board. Users can quickly find and send their resume and cover letter directly to the employer who is advertising the role. Additionally, job seekers can upload their resume to the online database at no charge and have access to review a wide array of online education material to help them in their job search.

Beyond the job board, AgCareers.com offers human resource professionals and job seekers a number of tools and resources. These items include the Compensation Benchmark Review™, the Agribusiness HR Review Report™, training and consulting, information about advance education, and much more.
