International Agri-Center and AgCareers.com Partner to Help Veterans

Since its launch at World Ag Expo in February of 2012, the Ag Warriors program has assisted veterans in search of careers in the agriculture industry. The program, which has provided veterans with training and career building resources, will be continued by AgCareers.com, the leading online career site and human resource service provider for agriculture, food, natural resources and biotechnology.


"In an effort to better serve returning veterans and their career needs, we have partnered with AgCareers.com to continue to grow the Ag Warriors program," said Jerry Sinift, CEO for the International Agri-Center. "The program has grown exponentially in the past year and we believe the time has come to entrust the program to experts in the career building field. AgCareers.com is a highly respected authority in the ag industry and they have our full support as they continue to serve our veterans."

 

AgCareers.com is focused on attracting qualified job seekers for the more than 3,600 jobs posted on the career portal each month. Headquartered in Clinton, North Carolina, AgCareers.com services job seekers and employers throughout North America from offices in California, Iowa and Ontario and has a growing international presence.

 

"AgCareers.com is honored to be chosen to continue the efforts of the International Agri-Center's Ag Warriors program," said Eric Spell, president of AgCareers.com.  "We are excited to open the door for both employers and veterans to connect regarding employment and careers within the agribusiness and food industries through AgCareers.com. We view the program as a way to honor veterans' service and assist them in taking the next steps to career success."

 

AgCareers.com will continue to address the needs of returning veterans and provide them with job searching resources to reach their career goals.

 

"The agriculture industry has many opportunities for veterans and veterans possess many of the skills and qualifications employers within the industry are looking for," said Spell.  "We are excited to build upon the Ag Warriors program's current success to give back to our very deserving military men and women."

  

At the Ag Warriors program launch, President George W. Bush gave a keynote address and his presence catapulted the effort into public awareness. As the program continued to grow, the 2013 benefit drew more supporters and the attention of Colonel Oliver North who served as the event's keynote speaker.

 

"The International Agri-Center has done a great service to our community of veterans by starting the Ag Warriors program," said Lt Col Oliver L. North USMC (Ret.). "I commend their courage in initiating the campaign against unemployment of returning veterans.  Transferring Ag Warriors to AgCareers.com is the perfect move to continue the advancement of the program.  I am fully confident in the future of Ag Warriors and admire the leadership of AgCareers.com for their enthusiasm and passion to support our veterans."

 

Veterans and employers interested in the Ag Warriors program should contact Erika Osmundson at 800.672.8552 x28 or email: erika.osmundson@agcareers.com
