I am a senior on track to graduate in May. I’m seeking advice for my job search. I am interested in food access and food production. I would love to speak to someone who works in food justice on the policy level or in a think tank. I would like a job that teaches me new skills such as research or a job that hones my grant writing skills.
I’ve worked on a farm doing field work as well as coordinating a low-income market. I also conducted a price-value analysis of the CSA model of the farm that I worked at v. other local, organic vendors. Additionally, I have some experience in grant writing.
I’m writing this because I am struggling to find a job that is both in my field of interest and that I am qualified for. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
