The Right Fit: Montag’s Experiences Lead to MaxYield Career Path

Aaron Montag, a recent college graduate, was no stranger to MaxYield when he joined the team, as he had worked as a part-time member for the past four summers. He graduated from South Dakota State University this May, with a degree in Ag Sciences and minors in Ag Business and Animal Science.

Here are a few reasons why Aaron appreciates his past MaxYield summer experiences:

Aaron MontagQ: What was it about your summer experiences with MaxYield that made you want to return?

A: No matter what location you go to they all are willing to teach, learn, and ask questions.

In past summers, I floated around a lot and got the chance to experience many different sides of MaxYield’s business. That was actually nice because I figured out what areas I liked better. With MaxYield, there are many opportunities here, one summer I even got to tour the SciMax Soil Lab.

Q: What advice do you have for future college graduates seeking their first full-time career position?

A: From my own first-hand experience of job searching, I’d tell them to get input from people who work there. Definitely pay attention to the benefits they offer as well. Make sure it is a place you feel comfortable.

Q: What do you like to do in your free time?

A: I help my dad, Frank, on the farm with the cattle herd, ride my motorcycle, and fish.
