Growing People, Ideas, and Communities in Extension
With the Mississippi State University Extension Service, you can find all of these opportunities and many more. And because Extension has offices serving every county in Mississippi, you can combine a great job with the lifestyle you prefer—rural countryside, small town, big city, or something in between.
In Extension, every day is different, but, every day, you make a difference. You design and deliver your own educational programs to help people in your community solve problems and achieve their goals and dreams.
Learning with you, children can grow into productive, responsible adults; adults can grow their skills in agriculture, business, family relationships, leadership, and more; and communities can grow strong and prosperous.
As an Extension agent, you are a leader in the community. You enjoy a solid salary and benefits, plus opportunities to stay on top of the knowledge in your field. And you work with people who care just as much as you do.
If you believe that learning makes things grow, and if you have a commitment to service, Extension is what you’re looking for!
The Mississippi State University Extension Service provides practical, research-based education people can trust. Through education in agriculture and natural resources, family and consumer sciences, 4-H youth development, and community development, Extension helps Mississippians improve their lives, their communities, and our environment.
