After graduating, what kind of career do you want in agriculture?

Phay Dalin, 21, a third-year student at Prek Leap National College of Agriculture majoring in Fishery
“In the future, I want to work for an organisation or institute that’s related to my major. That way, I can practice what I’ve learned and get more experience. Also, I wouldn’t go into farming because I don’t like it. But I do like fishery and aquatic science.?”

Nouv Sophorn, 25, a recent graduate of Prek Leap National College of Agriculture with a major in Veterinary and Animal Science
“Currently, I’m working as a veterinary consultant in the provinces. I go to villagers and help them when their farm animals get sick. In the future, I hope I can start my own company that produces medicine for animals. Since I studied animal science, I think I’ll be good at it, and, it’s related to everything that I’ve learned. ”

Kim Chanjout, 21, a third-year student at Royal University of Agriculture majoring in Agronomy
“When I graduate from university, I want to teach villagers in the provinces the benefits of new technology. I also want to share my knowledge related to better farming. I don’t mind whether or not I work for a government or non government organisation. As long as I’m exceeding at my field, that’s all that matters.”

Ren Soriya, 20, a third-year student at Royal University of Agriculture majoring in Agronomy
“For sure, I want to work for an NGO or at JICA. That way, I can share my knowledge with villagers in the provinces. I think that with the experience I’ve gained, that’s what I should be doing. Also, because I know how to farm, I definitely want to have my own land and cultivate it – but not in Prey Veng, because the land there is not fertile.”

Yoeung Seiha, 21, fourth-year student at Royal University of Agriculture majoring in Economics of Agriculture and Rural Development
“With the experience I gain in university, I want to work within my local community. I want to teach my community something that I’ve learned about agriculture to help them. Also, I want to apply for a Masters in the same discipline. I would love to study abroad somewhere like Japan, America or even Israel. And of course, I want to run my own business if I can – no risk, no money!?”
