Looking for a career? Edmonds Community College Horticulture Department lists job openings for grads

EdCC Horticulture“Jobs galore!” says Edmonds Community College’s Horticulture Department on its Facebook page: “Our job board indicates what seems true in the horticulture field–there are more jobs than people to fill them. One of our grads, Susan Yakymi, echoes this sentiment. The company for which she works cannot find employees fast enough to keep up with demand.”

The growing need for landscape employees is keeping Edmonds Community College horticulture graduates in demand. If you are interested in taking classes in the horticulture program, check out this information from the college website: In the horticulture program, “3 full-time instructors and about 15 part-time instructors teach more than 300 students. All are well-versed in their subject matter and dedicated to the educational welfare of their classes. Guest lecturers and the staff of the Grounds Department help at various points. About 40 percent of students choose to take only evening classes; about 60 percent of students are already working in the field, with 40 percent of those working already owning their own business. The average age currently is 38, with a range from 17 to 68. We are proud of a placement rate that has consistently exceeded 90 percent.”

If you’re looking for a career that blooms into a job, taking classes in horticulture at EdCC is a fine start. More information can be found on their website, and Facebook page.
