I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful words of wandering wisdom in this week's newsletter. They simply could not resonate more soundly for me!  I have been looking to connect the dots and am anxiously awaiting that often talked about light at the end of the tunnel. I'm embracing the journey, indeed. Checking new postings on GFJ has become a daily routine...Or more recently a routine practiced multiple times per day. Thanks so much for making me feel that I'm not alone in my wallowing.
Arianna, Job Seeker
I just wanted to compliment you on your site. I've looked at a lot career sites over the years and this one has a good feel to it. The other career sites are so corporate and impersonal I dread having to use them. I'm hoping my dream job comes up on your site.
Jeremy, Job Seeker
You and your team have done such a great job in making your site more than just a job search engine. GFJ inspires people to follow their heart and helps cultivate their courage to do so.

We just wanted to thank you so much for everything that you do. We have found an absolutely wonderful crew through your website. We posted our job opening and within one day we got an email from a young man who we hired almost immediately for his skill and experience. We will definitely recommend your site and use it in the future!

Through Good Food Jobs, I found the ideal employees and interns to help me install more edible gardens. Thanks, Good Food Jobs. Because of you, more lawns in Greater Boston have been transformed into beautiful organic edible gardens!

We've gotten a ton of good leads already. Couldn't have done it without GFJ.

We ended up hiring a great person for the job and she found us through Good Food Jobs! She's already made a huge difference and has built an education garden and organized lots of free field trips that get kids outside experiencing nature.
Emma, Job Poster
Again and again, I am so impressed by your thoughtfulness, your ability/standard to respond to EVERY email, and your lightening speed turn-around. The attention and consideration that you put into your company and community is truly woven through all that you do. I rarely mean it more than now, when I say: thank you for your email! 
Shoshana, GFJ Fan
I love your weekly emails. They provide hope and insight in the otherwise cryptic world of job-hunting, and remind me that I'm not alone. Thank you for daring to be different and proving that some companies really do care.
Sarah, GFJ Newsletter Reader
I am writing as the Mom of a twenty-something daughter who has used your wonderful site over the past year or so to be inspired to become a real farmer. I’m not sure she would write to you, but I want you to know how reading your blogs, scrolling through all of the jobs, and clicking links to other opportunities has been so valuable as I calmly, and carefully (not like a helicopter parent, but as a friend and supporter) forwarded to her some local jobs and thoughts about farming from your site. She is on her way to being a real farmer….and I couldn’t be more proud AND grateful to you!
Beth, GFJ Mom
As a rather food and food system-obsessed person, I love that you built a space for us like-minded souls to gather. I'm not job searching, but I love reading the profiles on the blog and getting a feel for all the ways that people are building lives and giving back through food. Each job post is a reminder that there are thousands of us out there, building a movement larger than any one of us.
Erin, GFJ Fan
Keep up your great work. I love the breath of fresh air I feel reading your newsletter each week (and browsing the jobs across the country -- imagination running wild).
Leslie, GFJ Fan
You guys have definitely found your voice, and it's a strong, passionate, honest, funny, and very wise one. When I was job seeking, the newsletter provided good advice and a realistic, relentless optimism that kept me going.
Whitney, Newsletter Reader
You are so awesome, and unlike most companies who don't report website problems, by doing so you make them non problems. Nice work as always!
Susie, GFJ Fan
I bow deeply to the wisdom and thoughtfulness that you impart on your work and in this site. Bravo. 
Victoria, GFJ Fan
I really love the work that you do - it's great to see an organization so committed to staying humble and fostering true connections. An entertaining newsletter is just icing on the cake.
Harley, GFJ Newsletter Reader
I have never felt so moved by a community of go-getters and good-doers such as the network of individuals who participate in Good Food Jobs. Their progressive actions, strong voices, and occasional willingness to be vulnerable in front of an audience for the sake of showing that it is a simple human trait has empowered me beyond any other resource I have utilized, for employment purposes or otherwise. In this community, you truly get the sense that everyone is working with common ideals towards common goals in effecting change, not only within their working and living environments, but within themselves, for personal growth.
Brianna, GFJ Fan
