Agriculture/Job Placement High 05 Apr 13

It is safe to say that just about every student who graduates from the agriculture programs at Ridgewater College in Willmar gets a job in their chosen field.

The West Central Tribune reports the three-year average for ag graduates getting jobs after studying at the local college is 99.67 percent, according to Kim Lippert, ag teacher and department chair at the Willmar campus.

While the official 2012 data isn’t yet available, Lippert said that all of the 2012 graduates were placed in ag-related jobs.

The demand for agriculture graduates has never been better, Lippert said, especially for students in the agronomy-related fields.
