There is one industry that exists to feed, clothe, and provide for the ever growing world population. That industry is AGRICULTURE. From farming, IT, health science, to education, there are 23 million jobs in Agriculture. This growing industry needs IT specialists, software developers, computer scientists, and engineers. The industry needs people with degrees in plant science, biology, health science, engineering, and food processing. The Agriculture industry also needs experts in communications, public relations, and social media. So, agriculture is just more than planting a seed.
Did you know that by the year 2050 there will be 2.5 billion more people on the planet, and they will need to eat. There’s food for thought!
