Life Of An Agriculture Graduate

By - - [ Education Agriculture ]

Yes! I made it, mom and dad am now a graduate. I'm so grateful to god for helping me all through the five years I spent in the university. I enrolled for NYSC and in a year I'll br done and then I'll face my career and make my parents proud.

Here I am teaching biology in a secondary school as a corper, what have this got to do with what I studied in the university? What happened to posting a graduate to where they can improve on their knowledge or even contribute a quota of their knowledge to aid the country or state. What happened to the sending us to agricultural development programs (ADPs) .

Fortunately, now that we are done with NYSC , life becomes so real. Some of us will enroll for masters degree program, some of us will start up business not related to agriculture and others will go back to business they left before going to obtain a degree claiming that they only wanted to get a certificate and be a graduate. Some of us will apply for a job in commercial and agricultural banks and get NO VACANCY reply. Some of us will apply to work in big farms and they expect us to have at least five years working experience. Then we will remember we are agro-preneurs and we can be self employed, sadly lack of capital will pose as a barrier. 

What do I do as an agriculture graduate? Did u really spend five years for nothing? What do I do now?

I'm a final year student of Agricultural engineering. An Agricultural engineer can work anywhere in the engineering sector because we do mechanical, civil, electrical and other engineering courses. We can even work in banks as a safety supervisor and can also be lawyers because we study Land law in Agricultural engineering. So no fear.

Agricultural graduates are expensive graduate because they have a career with the government and also they can built a career for themselves and become masters of their own even create an employment opportunities, so don't fear because with little capital you can starte something that will later become big.

In my own opinion, studying agriculture in the university is a waste of time not to mention studying it for five good years, I mean no offense. A person should already know the answer or the trend of our country which really doesn't ask you about what you came out with or what you studied. My brother, the only thing required from a graduate is what he or she can offer. I jst pray you sort your self out.

I think in my own perspective, an agricultural student on graduation has an edge over over students who graduated from other field of studies. Yes, this might sound annoying to you but yet it is the bitter truth.

A graduate of agriculture can easily becomes an entrepreneur with little or no capital. He can go into farming, poultry, fishery, soil science etc. He becomes his own boss and provides lively for his family if he has one.

I will say, agriculture graduates have more chances of earning a living. They don't need to carry application letters up and down roaming the streets searching for job. They have the full knowledge and skill to handle farming activities. By themselves,  they can get loan from agricultural organizations to get some capitals to get started. Agric students can engage in fishery, poultry, crop planting and so on.

Studying agriculture in the University is a beautiful course to study, besides there are so many job opportunities involved in agriculture, I think not getting a job when one is done with his or her University career in a government argriculture sector doesn't mean you can't set up a business that involves agroagricul, dealing in poultry is one lucrative business in Nigeria

From my own side of look, an agriculturist don't need carrying application form all around busy going up and down all in the name of looking for job, I think the  purpose of going to tertiary institution to study agriculture is just to have the certificate and little ideal on once knowledge,and after this one can start a mini business and be a successful person.

Being in Agricultural field I mean studying in school as a course and doing a lot of practical is the best... After graduating u can start ur business on ur own, cuz Agricultural has so many branches u can decide to be a fish farmers, have a poultry be a bee keeper that can produce so many things people needs like honey and so on... Agriculture is a self employed course dat u don't need to start looking for a job when u graduate.

There is a lot to do you can set up a land of agricultural products you mustn't depend on the government or rather a white collar job because the situation of the country now isn't favorable to all. One who engages in agricultural activities known to be rich or rather become rich because agriculture it's a very big means of livelihood so I suggest that you engage yourself in any activity pertaining to agriculture in other not to make your five years in the university a waste.

Agriculture is one sector that has the potential of changing this country but for the way our government is handling this sector.

The life of an agriculture graduate is very tasking because this days the government doesn't give much attention to this sector,so it's difficult for a graduate in this sector to get a job.Sometimes he or she needs to create one.
