Employment profile of graduates

Mushroom cultivation shows a very rapid development in our country. But the desired dimensions have not yet been achieved. The main reason for this is that the consumption of mushrooms is not sufficient in our country and that our people do not have enough knowledge about mushrooms. At present, job opportunities are mainly in the private sector as well as being able to provide job opportunities by their own grower who have the title of technician. However, if we take into account the rapid development of fungi in our country, we will be able to find a job as a big sector in the near future. It can work with the title "Mushroom Technician".
