For Employees

It’s a great day to be an Extension employee (1/13/2016)

As winter gets long and daylight is short, it can begin to feel a bit gloomy. That’s when we need to take a breath and remember that, despite everyday challenges, the NDSU Extension Service is a great place to work because we make a difference---you make a difference.

In her Dec. 11, 2015 blog post, Deb Gebeke pointed to the organization’s recently revamped careers page. If you haven’t yet gone there, take a minute when you have a chance. Especially, flip through the Compensation and Benefits section to be reminded of what is provided to help you feel appreciated, motivated, energized and productive. A friend of Extension recently noted that our retirement package with 11 to 18% contributions and fully-funded health insurance valued at over $13,500 are incredible. I can’t agree more.  

You’ll find a link to a brochure there too, to put in the hands of high school and college students, and others who may aspire to be an agent if they knew more about us. Printed copies are available from Lori Lymburner for individual contacts, high school career fairs and other opportunities you have to promote the NDSU Extension Service as a great career choice.
