Occupational Opportunities and Training Needs of Youth for Nonfarm Agricultural Jobs in Alexandria-Pineville Area.
Mondart, C. L., Sr.; Curtis, C. M.
Thirteen parishes in Central Louisiana were surveyed (1) to identify nonfarm agricultural business and professional organizations having 1 or more job titles requiring knowledge or skill in agricultural subjects and (2) to determine entry-level job qualifications. One hundred thirty-nine agricultural business and professional organizations were categorized in 8 major occupational families, and information was gathered pertaining to number of employees, average age of employees, median monthly salary, educational level desired by employers, residential background and farm experience of employees, and agricultural areas with which prospective employees must be familiar. Conclusions and recommendations are presented to assist school administrators, counselors, and agricultural instructors in adjusting programs of vocational agriculture to meet the needs of students who aspire to jobs in nonfarm agriculture.
