Our History



As the original employer-paid personnel recruiting firm in the United States targeting the agricultural industry, Roy Holland became a pioneer in the industry when he founded agriCAREERS, INC.® in New Hampton, Iowa in 1968.  Gary Maas was made partner in 1977 with the opening of the Massena, Iowa office.  Tammy Jensen, Judy Meyer, and Judy Bruening became part owners as the business transitioned.

Today, employers and employees in all areas of agriculture work with agriCAREERS, INC.® to fulfill employment needs in agribusiness, agronomy, seed, farm production, banking & finance, and the food industries.  One survey concluded that of the Fortune 500 companies with ag-related operations, 91% have used our services.

agriCAREERS, INC.® celebrated 45 years of successful business in 2013.  We look forward to serving the agricultural industry for many more years to come.


"Agriculture is our wisest pursuit, because it will in the end contribute most to real wealth, good morals, and happiness."  ~ Thomas Jefferson (1787)
