"Finding a good food job isn’t like becoming a doctor or a teacher. There’s no pre-set path, and sometimes it can be frustrating trying to figure out what to do next. My advice is to get a lot of experience, even if it isn’t in the perfect job or even paid. Learn more about the sector you’re interested in by diving in. Work a job, volunteer, go to conferences, and – most importantly – meet people. Once you’re in the sustainable food world, you’re much more likely to catch the jobs that do come along or find opportunities to create your own!"
