Oklahoma Commerce Department Seeking Business Recruiter Focused on Ag Industry

Wed, 28 Apr 2021 09:02:12 CDT

Oklahoma Commerce Department Seeking Business Recruiter Focused on Ag Industry With an emphasis on sector-based recruitment of economic development projects, the Oklahoma Department of Commerce is seeking applications for a Business Recruiter focused on the agricultural industry.

Brent Kisling, executive director of the Oklahoma Department of Commerce, was interviewed by Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays, about the need to pinpoint industry specific recruiters.

We have completely revamped the way we do our business recruitment at the Department of Commerce, Kisling said.

Previously, the Commerce Department would have a domestic team to focus on places such as Atlanta and Houston, and a global team focused on Europe and Brazil.

Now we have changed where every one of our individuals have a specific industry they are focused on, Kisling said.

We have somebody looking at aerospace, and automotive and now we are establishing a position with agriculturally based industries, Kisling said.

They would be interacting with agribusinesses, meat processing, equipment manufacturing, commodities, they could be dealing with the value-added side of it, traveling the world, Kisling said.

We’re looking for folks who have contacts within that industry but more than anything else have energy and passion for the state of Oklahoma, Kisling said.

The hopes are we get people who really speak the language in each one of these industries, he said.

You’ve got to be able to talk that same language, he added.

Kisling said they are working closely with the Oklahoma Agriculture Department.
