I found my dream job using this site. I graduated college in May and checked GFJ multiple times a day. I finally found my employer and got hired in mid-December. Thank you for all that you do!
Jessy, GFJ Success Story
This newsletter really resonated with me because while I have taken some small steps in these few years, I think the fear you mentioned of not doing something impressive right away has paralyzed me into not doing much beyond it. I do feel good about my small steps, but I'm still in the limbo of wondering whether the food world could become a career or if it will just stick around as a hobby. Either way, your words are always comforting and positively thought-provoking.
Claire, Newsletter Reader

I found my job through GFJ, and I just wanted to reiterate how amazing I think the site is, and how sweet you were for taking the time to connect so many months back. Thank you for being awesome and for doing awesome work. It feels great to be back in the food world in a more meaningful way, something I thought might never be possible.
Kimberly, GFJ Success Story
I can't begin to say how big of a fan I am. You're the reason I'm working in food! I got my first full-time job out of college through GFJ, and I continue to look at your site for career information, inspiration, and as a resource to track the growth of other food companies.
Alison, Job Seeker
Your weekly messages are truly inspiring. I feel more motivated to put myself back on track to get the job I want.
Maura, Job Seeker
After what felt like an interminable period of searching for a new job and dreading my current (non-food related) employment, an amazing opportunity close to home at a company I admire fell into my lap. I don't know what I would have done without GFJ--just knowing that there was a site geared toward my job interests made things so much easier. Thank you so much for all the wonderful and thoughtful work that you do!

You have the most real, honest newsletter and website, and specifically job hunting site.

Katrina, GFJ Fan
A couple of years ago, I was nothing but a lost, food-obsessed environmentalist. My life was changed by a Good Food Job that started me on a magnificent path of food education, food growing and sharing.
Chelsea, GFJ Fan
All of us in the food business are forever grateful for your idea of Good Food Jobs – and just as importantly – for your courage to follow through on it. Your website and blog are filled with ideas and ways for us to connect with each other, whether we're looking for work or looking for a sense of community.
Deborah, GFJ Success Story
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
The first couple times that I got these newsletters, I was annoyed that I was getting junk mail after signing up on Good Foods Jobs as an applicant. After finally taking the time to read one, I realized they are amazing. For once, a newsletter I will not click Unsubscribe on!
Danielle, GFJ Fan
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.
