Abstract: The problem of adjusting the existing education system to the needs of the changing labor market concerns agriculture more and more. As a part of modern agribusiness, it must not only meet the requirements of the food processing and distribution cells, but also the conditions of growing competition of agriculture of other countries from the EU and beyond. The article presents the functioning of the personnel education system for agriculture in Poland as well as the results of opinion polls of students completing the first-cycle university degree. The aim of the study was to show students' expectations of ideal professional work and perception of agribusiness as a workplace.On the basis of the conducted research five top-rated (TOP 5) characteristics of ideal work after completing education at university and five least-important ones were determined. According to the respondents, ideal work should: (i) be in accordance with interests, (ii) give a sense of pride in performing duties, (iii) ensure respect among customers and other employees in the company, (iv) guarantee a high salary and (v) have a friendly working atmosphere. At the opposite pole there were issues related to irregular work time, its mobility and fast and high rate.Analyzing the students' opinion on the subject of working in agribusiness, it was found that for 3/5 of the respondents it would be an interesting stage of a professional career, for half it would be a very good place for permanent work. The readiness to start own business after the university education was declared by as much as 34.0% of students
