When looking at placements, I wanted to be open minded, with no specific job in mind post-graduation. Therefore, I decided to utilise my interest in agriculture and nutrition, but into an area of the industry that I was less experienced in, pigs.
The ForFarmers pig scholarship placement allows me to explore the companies' various departments including; marketing, technical, compound and young animal. Widening my skills and experience, ultimately creating a clearer image in mind of the career I wish to pursue in the long term. Potentially leading to a job post-graduation with ForFarmers.
ForFarmers has made me feel valuable, before I had even started my placement, they greeted me with open arms. I will be sharing my journey over the next 12 months with monthly blog posts to help you visualise a placement with ForFarmers. Giving you an insight into what happens behind the scenes, and of course to laugh along with me at the inevitable mistakes I will make and learn from.
