Miss Rodeo America, Inc. (MRA) formally announces a new partnership with Of The West, as the “Official Job Platform” of the Miss Rodeo America organization.
Created in 2020, Of The West is a job platform solely dedicated to positions and employees in the agriculture and western industries. From farm, ranch, and equine jobs to careers in western sports, ag business, and everything in between, Of The West was built to change the way people find jobs and hire employees in the agriculture and western industries.
“The Miss Rodeo America organization is deeply rooted in promoting and preserving the agriculture and western industries, so this partnership is a natural fit,” says Jessie Jarvis, Founder, and CEO of Of The West. “At both the state and national levels, contestants within the Miss Rodeo America program learn firsthand the importance of hard work, character, networking, and are incredible spokespeople for our industry. Those skills are exactly what businesses in ag and western are looking for when it comes to filling roles, and we are proud to help play a part in connecting those.”
Of The West proudly serves members of the ag and western industries from coast to coast, in both the United States and Canada, offering job postings for entry-level internships all the way through advanced full-time employment opportunities. This partnership seamlessly aligns with Of The West’s mission to help agriculture and western industries have access to stronger talent, and to provide more opportunities for women in ag and western. Of The West will also provide Miss Rodeo America contestants with exclusive career resources and educational opportunities.
“We are thrilled to be partnered with Of The West,” says Jeana Linton, Miss Rodeo America, Inc. Executive Director. This is a perfect platform for young ladies who have held state rodeo queen titles and are now ready to explore career opportunities in the western and agricultural fields. There has not been a central resource to bring employers together with our former contestants where they can match up workforce needs with workforce talents. It’s always said that being a rodeo queen will garner you with not only memorable experiences but also the skills needed to better your future career. We are proud to offer a valuable resource to our alumni to benefit them beyond the crown.”
Miss Rodeo America symbolizes the youth of our nation who wish to further promote Agriculture, and the sport of Professional Rodeo, and in doing so, promotes the great western way of life. She is the ideal, agriculturally oriented American young woman, who embodies professionalism, speaks intelligently, and has integrity, good character, knowledge, and grace. She consistently models and demonstrates these characteristics as she travels extensively across our country and at times, to other countries as well. The primary mission of Miss Rodeo America is that she will promote the western culture and way of life by educating the general public on topics including ranching and farming heritage, the agriculture industry, and the sport of rodeo. An additional outcome is to provide educational opportunities for these young women to be prepared for the leadership positions of tomorrow.
