Goodbye to my Agro-Know family

Almost one month ago I took a very difficult decision of moving out of Agro-Know and pursue my professional career elsewhere. After two years being part of the team, I now believe that I have fulfilled my circle in the company and is time to move on. But throughout the month, I was thinking on how much I would miss the company.

It all started two years ago when on April first 2013 (yes, on the April Fool’s day) I joined the company for the first time. As time was passing, I was more and more connected with the people here, actually living one of our values, being part of a “family”.… Click to read the full post

1. When did you join the Agro-Know team? Any interesting story behind your recruitment?
Well, I am one of the new “guys” having joined only last April, but I already feel not only like being here for a long time.
I could definitely remember two things about my recruitment:
-first interview in AK offices, me being fashionable on time and instead of the interview (which was delayed), participating in a small meeting in the kitchen for the agINFRA user content meeting
-my first day in the offices being April Fools’ Day and thinking if at the end of the day they would say it was just a joke
