Daniel Meyer, a soil conservationist with the United States Department of Agriculture, was on campus in the Fireside Room March 14 to present agriculture job opportunities to students who are interested in pursuing a career in the ag business.
Meyer, who has worked in the ag business for seven years, presented the six interested students in attendance with many exciting opportunities.
Meyer presented many different types of jobs but among the most notable was Earth team volunteer, which involves doing various jobs for the USDA.
Other jobs that were mentioned in a handout from Meyer include: soil conservationist, rangeland management specialist, soil scientist, and civil/agricultural engineer.
According to a pamphlet, there is a program called Student Career Experience Program that allows you to work for the USDA and get paid for the job assigned to you, while still attending school.
