The Center’s Job Opportunities Page Allows Dairy Producers to Submit Job Openings
With Pennsylvania dairy production and associated businesses contributing more than $12 billion annually to the state’s economy, and those businesses creating more than 52,000 jobs, the Center for Dairy Excellence has a “Dairy Job Opportunities” tool available for producers who have employment opportunities they are looking to fill on their operations. The online resource allows dairy producers to submit their job openings to be shared with the Center for Dairy Excellence’s networks and digital channels.
“We developed this resource to help Pennsylvania dairy producers have an outlet for promoting the jobs they have available on their farms. Once a job post is submitted, we work to share it with our network of dairy professionals, including young producers and students who are entering the workforce,” said Emily Barge, Communications and Marketing Manager at the Center for Dairy Excellence. “Several individuals have connected with farms and discovered jobs that match their interests after first seeing them on the job board, and we hope it continues to be a valuable resource for producers across the state.”
When submitting a job opening, dairy producers must include the title of the position and employment category, including full-time, part-time, hourly or internship opportunity. They must also include the farm name, job description and responsibilities, employer’s contact information, and a job application if available.
“The Center for Dairy Excellence job board helped us to find a qualified full-time employee for our dairy farm, and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it,” said Matt Keller of Legen-Dairy Farm, LLC in York County, Pennsylvania. “What I liked about posting to this site is that unlike other job sites, you know that a person who finds you on the Center’s job page is committed to the dairy industry and passionate about what they do.”
