Do you (or someone you know) work as a Precision Agriculture Specialist/Technician? Or perhaps your work involves supervising or training Precision Agriculture Specialists/Technicians? If either of your answers is “Yes,” then we need your help.

Under a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor/Employment & Training Administration, the National O*NET Center is seeking precision professionals to answer questions about their work for a national occupational database. Selected volunteers receive a $40 honorarium.

We are looking for people with expertise in the occupation of Precision Agriculture Specialists/Technicians to answer survey questions about Precision Agriculture work, as part of the O*NET Data Collection program.

By volunteering to assist in these efforts, you will help the O*NET database to accurately reflect the realities of the American workplace, and you will be doing your part to represent the occupation of Precision Agriculture Specialists/Technicians on behalf of the entire profession. Thank you in advance for volunteering!
