A common question when considering a career path in agriculture is “do I want to work inside or outside?”. The answer is often, “well, both”.
I remember my perception when I graduated college was that if I wanted to be a true “professional” I needed to take an office job, however the idea of sitting in front of computer all day was depressing to me.
As with many things, I was completely wrong. There are PLENTY of very professional positions with great compensation and career prospects that involve working outside.
I was also wrong about all office jobs looking like a Dilbert comic. There are many office jobs that are exciting and challenging and will ensure that even the most restless person enjoys going to the office every day.
Here are five examples of careers in agriculture that will keep you engaged working both inside and outside. These also have great career prospects for those willing to do the work.
