Rachel Noe, senior Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and Communication student, already has a job lined up upon graduation.
After working on redesigning a web site with John Deere's e-business team during her internship in 2015, Noe was offered a Marketing Representative position that starts the summer after she graduates. She will start with a three-part training process in different locations around the United States to experience the production, marketing and sales aspects of John Deere's product line.
"I'm looking forward to having the opportunity to see how a Fortune 500 company operates at every level and learning about the different sides of agriculture that I've never seen," Noe said.
Noe grew up on a diversified family farm near Spring Bay, Illinois where she helped raise hogs, cantaloupes, watermelons, corn, and soybeans.
"I appreciate the hard work ethic that growing up on a farm has instilled in me," Noe said, "it builds a lot of character because you understand the hard work that goes into producing the food that is feeding the world."
Noe will earn a Bachelors of Science in AESC with an emphasis in strategic communications. "There's a lot to love about AESC here at Nebraska," Noe said. "It's a really balanced and flexible program and a great group of people to collaborate with."
Noe is involved in the Nebraska Collegiate Farm Bureau, quarter scale tractor pulling team, and serves as president of the Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow club.
