Career Goals:

As a student at North Carolina State University studying Field Crop Technology I plan to obtain a job as an agronomist for a seed and chemical company. Currently in the 2-year Ag Institute program, I plan to transfer in to the four-year Crop and Soil Sciences college after I complete the Ag Institute. With a four-year degree I will be able to apply for higher position jobs as well as meet requirements for positions that are non-obtainable with a 2-year degree.
