How to nail your interview

“While we work in Agriculture, we hold a business casual dress code at our company. Remember it is suggested to dress one pay grade higher than the job you are going for.”


Dress to Impress

“If you are in an in-person interview, be yourself! We are trying to get to know you better, hear more about your experience, and see if you’d fit in with our employees. It’s okay if the answer to a question is ‘no’. We care more about your character and your experience than you being the perfect fit!”


Be Genuine

“Nothing ruins an interview more than a cell phone, a water bottle, or your own refreshments at the table. Be present. Have no fear, the water and coffee will appear! Beyond setting distractions aside, ask thoughtful questions. Be aware of who we are and what our mission is. (Hint, go check out our About page). Having done some research on our company and our mission and being actively engaged in a conversation will set you up for great success. Remember, a follow-up note after the interview sets you apart from the rest.”
