What Can You Do with an Agricultural Business Degree?

What jobs can you get with an agricultural business degree? Really, what can I do with an agricultural business degree?

These days, farming is big business, so big farms need people who are trained in both farming and business. (Small farms need these people too!) People who major in agricultural business usually go on to manage and/or own farms and ranches.

Some agribusiness degree holders manage only the finances of a farm—others are involved in the entire process. Some people who earn this degree go into sales and marketing. Some go into the food industry. Some go to work for the government, and some go on to graduate school.

Agribusiness graduates could end up working for themselves, for the USDA, for John Deere, or for Land O’Lakes. This major will lead to many opportunities, especially for those willing to relocate.

What Can You Do with an Advertising Degree?

What jobs can you get with an Advertising Degree? I’m wondering what can I do with an Advertising Degree?

The short answer? Lots. Advertising is about making money and there are lots of companies out there looking for people who know how to convince other people to spend money. Just take a moment to analyze the latest Old Navy commercial and imagine the dozens of people involved in that process.

Everywhere you look there is advertising: your favorite website, the side of a bus, race cars, your mailbox, your favorite radio station, the newspaper, the Super Bowl, the grocery store…and everywhere you look, there are individuals skilled in advertising working behind the scenes: artists, writers, marketers, technologists, musicians, and statisticians hard at work. Even the poor guy wearing the hotdog costume is working in advertising (though we hope he is still working toward his degree!). Some advertising majors even go into research, to investigate how advertising works.

What jobs can you get with an advertising degree? Well, most companies have advertising departments. You can also find job opportunities in fast-paced marketing and advertising firms. There are also many successful freelance advertising specialists. Advertising jobs can be lucrative, but they can also be high-stress as advertising is, by nature, a fast-paced and competitive field that is motivated by profit.

Be aware that in order to increase your job opportunities, it might be wise to live in a populated area. While job opportunities do exist in rural areas, they are fewer and further between. Many advertising job opportunities also require one to travel.

What Can You Do with an Accounting Degree?

What jobs can you get with an accounting degree? I’m curious what can I do with an accounting degree?

An accounting degree is, to put it bluntly, a really good idea. Wherever there is business, or money, there is a need for people who know how to crunch the numbers, i.e., accountants.

Many individuals rely on accountants to prepare their taxes for them, and nearly all businesses need accountants to organize their finances. If you are good at math and like to work with numbers, a career in accounting could be a very lucrative opportunity for you!

Some accountants open their own offices and work with people and small businesses one on one, and some accountants work within accounting firms. Others work within companies or organizations. Even colleges and hospitals need accountants. Some accountants go to work for the government and make sure people are paying their taxes!

In order to call yourself a “CPA” – Certified Public Accountant, you will need to pass the national CPA exam and become certified in your own state. Some states require a certain amount of work experience and/or a specific amount of credit hours. However, there are many job opportunities for one who holds an accounting degree, even if he or she hasn’t yet earned CPA certification.

I am so glad that I went and got an accounting degree. My degree has allowed me to provide for my family and to live a comfortable life. I now own my own CPA firm. It is a stressful field to be in during the spring months, but every summer, we get to take a month off and go to Florida!
