Getting started

IAgrE in partnership with BAGMA and the AEA produces a Careers Guide "World of Opportunity - Landbased Engineering" which is available to read here.  This explains some of the opportunities available to get you started, you may download a copy of the brochure here.  Also see our web pages on Landbased Engineering as a Career .  

The University Interview Guide guide showcases some of the most common questions asked during an interview, as well as tips on how students can best answer them. It also shares advice on how to present oneself to make a good impression; such as being assertive (but not overbearing), using strong and confident body language, type of clothes to wear, and plenty of other practical and useful information.

You can also try out some Practice Reasoning Tests, or these numerical and verbal reasoning tests to help you prepare for interviews.

Next Steps

Throughout your working life, you will need to continually plan how you wish to see your career develop.  Planning and recording your achievements is a vital part of this development. This process is known as continuing personal/professional development (CPD) and IAgrE membership can and should be part of this process.

We have an excellent tool called mycareerpath that helps you record your experience and create a living CV for future employers.  This is FREE with IAgrE Membership.

Getting Help

Our mentoring scheme pairs members who are looking for guidance and advice with experienced professionals to help them progress with their career or move towards professional registration.  Our member logged in area provides an area dedicated to mentoring for both the mentor and mentee with practical advice, workbooks and questionnaires.   Members log in now.

Young People

IAgrE especially encourages those younger colleagues who are interested in landbased engineering.  Working with the younger generation is a high priority for IAgrE and we have a number of initiatives aimed at this group. One activity sponsored by IAgrE was the making of a careers video by students at Harper Adams University for students (at school) to help those at school make subject study choices that will assist them in selecting a career in engineering.

IAgrE also promotes and runs a Young Engineers Competition aimed at students in both Secondary School and Further Education colleges.  The Douglas Bomford Trust, a charity whose primary remit is supporting agricultural engineering, works closely with IAgrE, and supports our student recruitment programme.
