The boom of online job boards began in the early 2000s, and there was a recognized need to refine recruitment practices in the agricultural industry. The original business, JobHog.net, launched in 2001 to raise the bar on recruitment practices and build the talent pipeline in agriculture.
In December 2003, AgCareers and Jobhog.net merged operations to become the leading supplier of HR services to the agriculture and food industry. Farms.com is an active shareholder partner in the AgCareers.com business.
AgCareers.com serves companies throughout the world from its headquarters in Clinton, North Carolina, with additional operations in Iowa, California, Canada & Australia.
Today the AgCareers.com site has more than one million page views every month, with 5,000 jobs posted from employers each month.
