Agriculture and Consumer Protection Inspector (Former Employee) – Midland, TX – January 26, 2015
As an inspector 90% of communication with my supervisor was through e-mail and phone calls. My territory was two hours away from the regional office I worked from home. It was a very independent atmosphere at which I enjoyed and thrived in. The most enjoyable part was meeting new people every day and completing new tasks everyday.

Acquire great knowledge and relaxing work environment
International Marketing Intern/Assistant (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – August 27, 2012
My typical day starts at 9am and goes until 5pm, usually depending on the projects I have to stay extra hours or come in earlier. Since I started I have learned an extensive amount of information on the agriculture industry and its various aspects of operation and categories. This job has helped me increase my knowledge of the industry and acquire more experience in the international platform, since I have been exposed to marketing abroad. This is a very relaxing work environment, there are helpful coworkers and my supervisor has been a great mentor. The hardest part of the job would be time constraints and multiple projects at once, therefore I need to manage my time and work under pressure in order to deliver great work results on all the projects. I do enjoy coming in to work since I constantly learn something new and I love the idea of marketing and working for various international markets.
I enjoyed my co-workers and my direct supervisor was great, but the division was in a state of flux due to merging of programs and an implementation of a new computer system. Processes and procedures were not planned out which lead to a high level of chaos. The positive to this was that if you were willing to jump in there were lots of opportunities to learn new things. Unfortunately, with state budget constraints there is no career path, so if you want to advance you have leave.
