Forty percent of all people gainfully employed in the United States today are engaged in some kind of agricultural work. California alone needs over 8,000 additional trained people each year for employment in agriculture. The training program at SRJC prepares the student for a choice of jobs on the farm as well as off-farm related jobs. Working conditions in agricultural jobs are ideal for those individuals who like to work out-of-doors with living things.
