Ag Leader Offers Opportunities at Upcoming Career Fair

by Ryan Carlson on October, 10 2013 in Ag Leader, Training & Support

As another group of Ag Leader technical support interns round-out the final few months of their internship program; we begin our quest to find new individuals to support the vast product lineup Ag Leader Technology offers to its customers.  Select individuals will gain hands on experience in the areas of application control, machine guidance, yield monitoring, ISOBUS, desktop software, and mobile software functionality.


Ag Leader’s support internship program is seven months long.  In the hardware and machine guidance support teams, you will begin with in-depth training ranging from instructor led courses to in-field installations. By the end of your training period you will be fully prepared to troubleshoot system components, as well as adequately operate Ag Leader products dating back to the YM 2000. 

As a member of the software support team, you will be trained in-depth on our desktop and mobile software products.  You will also receive training on hardware products from Ag Leader and other precision ag suppliers, so that you understand what data is collected in the field and how data is moved from the field to the office, and vice versa.  By the end of the training, you will be able to help customers, on the phone or a training event, use their software to make management decisions and read in/export data to their displays.

Tad Meyer had the following comments pertaining to his internship experience thus far:

“The skills I have received during my internship at Ag Leader have far exceeded that of my previous experiences. Besides the advanced training I received on many precision products, I have developed better communication skills by working with a variety of people from all over the U.S.“

If you’re looking for a challenging yet rewarding internship for January 2014 that will better prepare you for the fast paced world of precision agriculture stop by and see us at the Iowa State career fair on October 15th or visit our careers page at http://www.agleader.com/about/careers/
