The purpose of the guide is career education and connecting people to the varied and numerous careers in the agriculture and food industries.
The Agriculture & Food Career Guide is a career resource for students and professionals across North America interested in careers within the industry. The guide provides branding recognition for elite agriculture and food organizations, a direct connection to students and professionals interested in agriculture and food careers, and educational content that engages and sustains readership. Example articles from this year’s guides include: "Adapting Your Resume to Different Positions," "Setting (Realistic) Salary Expectations," and "Tips & Tricks for Online Job Searches."
Two editions of the Career Guide are available—one for the U.S. and one for Canada.
