Employment in Agriculture

There are plenty of opportunities to gain employment on a grain farm.
The main attribute sought by farm employers is attitude. Employers are looking for individuals that are willing to:
• Operate with a high level of accountability and attention to detail

• Work outdoors

• Work additional hours in the peak periods

• Use initiative and problem solve

• Ask questions and communicate effectively

• Be flexible and reliable

• Live in a regional area, sometimes this means a short drive to the closest town and services
