Brian Postin enjoys working directly with farmers as the vice president at 1st Farm Credit Services.

“Having an understanding of farming and everything that goes into it allows me to relate to our clients,” he said. “And my knowledge of financial concepts helps me offer input that can be beneficial to them.”

Brian said the University of Illinois provided him with the experiences he needed to be successful in his career.

“My courses opened my eyes to a lot of new concepts and ideas,” he said. “I learned to look at things from a broader perspective, think critically, and communicate with others.”

In addition, his participation on the U of I livestock judging and meat evaluation teams dramatically improved Brian’s communication skills and the ability to both make decisions and explain the reasons behind them.

“I believe there is a strong focus at the U of I on preparing students for life after college,” he said. “They truly care about their alumni being successful after graduation.”
