Is it Too Early to Find a Summer Farm Job?

There’s still snow on the ground in many places across the United States, and eve if you live in a warmer climate, you’re probably not ready to start thinking about hot summer days just yet. After all 2012 has barely started!

Yet, it’s really not too early to start looking for a summer job, especially in the agricultural industry. Working on a farm is possible year-round, but more jobs are definitely available during the spring, summer, and winter. To land a top position, you need to apply early, especially at more popular farms or if you want a higher-paying job.

Which agriculture job is right for you? Here are a few things to consider:

  • Do you want to work with plants, animals, or people? Working with crops or livestock is an option, but so is a job in agri-tainment or sales.
  • Are you willing to move for a job? Agricultural jobs in certain areas, like Alaska, sometimes pay better than in other areas.
  • Are you interested in a higher-paying job? These positions are typically in management or performing skills that require training, so start you education now to be prepared in time for a summer position.

There are already a few summer positions open at the Job Monkey Jobs Center, and more will be following in the coming months, so start you search now for that perfect temporary position.
