Hiring in Agriculture: Let’s PIVOT and CHANGE
At our June 2022 AgConnect virtual meeting, CareerLink® Montgomery County staff opened our minds to some resources to help agriculture businesses make their next best hiring decision.
If you’re seeking a candidate for a current position, find your local CareerLink office and make an appointment to connect with a Business Services Representative. These individuals can help by:
Sharing resources to help you identify the skills needed for the position – and maybe help attract an employee from another industry with transferable skills!
- Refining your position description and share and post it within the community and the CareerLink® system.
- Considering candidates that you may not have otherwise considered for the position, including veterans and returning citizens.
- Connecting you with funds that could help you pay your employee while they train on the job, fund other training opportunities to up-skill current employees, or to establish and train an apprentice.
Employees seeking a career can register with the CareerLink® system to find what skills they currently have, and what jobs they may consider while using those skills. Two resources job seekers to can use to self-evaluate skills and talents are Career OneStop Skills Matcher and O*NET.
There is a CareerLink® office in each County in PA. Click here to find your local office.
