4 Signs a Career in Agriculture is Right For You

4 Signs a Career in Agriculture is Right For You
Posted By: Dixie Somers on June 11, 2020

Evidence suggests that a career in agriculture is often a good decision. An overwhelming majority of agricultural workers say that they are happy with their career. If you are at that pivotal moment in life when you’re looking at potential careers and deciding between them, don’t overlook agriculture. It might just have everything you’re looking for. Here are four signs that indicate your career in agriculture is right for you.


You Enjoy Being Outside

Does spending a few hours in an office or a classroom make you feel stir-crazy? Do you spend hours staring out windows, wishing you were out in the fresh air instead of stuck indoors? If you answered “yes” to these two questions, then you’ll love the outdoor setting of agricultural work. Day after day, whether working in the field or attending ranch land sales, you’ll be conducting your business beneath the open sky. Considering the extent to which being outside has been linked to better health and overall well-being, this is far from an insignificant factor.


You Want Job Security

If uncertainty and the risk of unemployment seems unbearable to you, then the job security of agricultural work will be a serious comfort.



If you plan to study agriculture, then your chances of landing a job after you get your degree are overwhelmingly in your favor. In a questionable job market, this near assurance of employment is wonderful to count on.


You’re a Humanitarian

If you care about how your work improves the well-being of humanity, then agriculture work will satisfy your humanitarian leanings. Food is an essential component of life. By helping to produce it, you’ll be keeping countless people hungry and healthy.


You Like to Have Options

In some fields, once you've chosen your career you are relatively limited in the types of jobs you can do. With agriculture, this couldn't be farther from the case. The variety of agricultural jobs is mind blowing, with endless opportunities in different types of products and on different levels of the supply chain. From feeding cows to selling wholesale barley, you're sure to find the job for you.


Deciding on a career involves both introspection and outside research. Ultimately, you need to know yourself before you can know which career is right for you. If, when you look into your soul, you see the four characteristics listed above, then an agricultural career might be right for you.
