While it was frustrating and scary (relatively, of course) to spend a few months searching, the positive energy that resonates from your site was always present.
Mackenzie, GFJ Success Story
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.

GFJ is a ray of hope as I seek to satisfy my hunger for meaningful work!
Rebekah, Job Seeker
I have applied for three jobs on your site, and have been lucky enough to get all three - I love you guys. I constantly refer people to you. So thanks.
Peter, Job Seeker
Out of all the job search sites I'm subscribed to, yours is by far the most well designed and uplifting. Searching for the perfect job (or at least one you enjoy) can be frustrating, but your site is a reminder that work can be meaningful.
Kristine, Job Seeker
Because of you and GFJ and all these other wonderful things, we have created a family in the midwest, where none of us grew up, but where we all now have a home.
Mollie, GFJ Success Story
I have read your newsletter for years and have always been inspired by what you do, what you stand for, and the companies that you partner with. I'm currently looking for my next career move, and while I have not yet found it, your site is almost a daily check-in for me to see what new opportunities are out there with people doing really great stuff in the food world. Thank you for what you are doing in our industry.
Sarah, Job Seeker
I enjoy your site tremendously and I am happy to see the "food" community is alive and well, and that other people care as much as I do about what/how food is grown and produced and eaten in this country.
Kelly, Job Seeker

Priya, Job Seeker
We love Good Food Jobs and have had great success with it. I myself found this job through your site, and during the whole search process it was by far the best resource I found.
Christina, GFJ Success Story
We use Good Food Jobs to find folks who want to work in food and also want to make a difference. As a non-profit organization that also operates a community market, we want to find people at that intersection of caring about food and caring about people, and my experience with GFJ candidates has been that they overwhelmingly fit both criteria. Everyone we've interviewed or hired through GFJ has so much passion for working in food.

I have used Good Food Jobs for the past three years to find intern positions and farm work. Now, I am continuing as Field Manager (a position that I found on the site last season), and I am the one posting a job to the site! I still look forward to your weekly newsletters and words of inspiration. It's like a burst of energy in an email-- a good pick-me-up at lunch break.
Katie, Job Poster
Good Food Jobs has been excellent traction for my job posting, and the customer service is impeccable. I even had a reporter pick up the opportunity because she saw the posting on GFJ!
Zaro, Job Poster
The site has been really helpful and you two are super accommodating. We get 50 responses through more generic sites and maybe 1 or 2 are decent. We have gotten 3-5 responses through your site and they have all been nearly perfect candidates. Very happy your site came along.
Todd, Job Poster
I am so grateful for your help and for your website. Since starting my new position, I have hired four superb staff, all of whom found the job through a posting we put on your site.
Peter, Job Poster
Your site was a fantastic communication tool for us last year, and I'm very grateful to utilize it again this year.
Laura, Job Poster
For the past 5 years we have posted our Community Gardening Leadership Training apprenticeshipships on GFJ, and many of our best apprentices have come from these postings. We so appreciate the work you are doing in the world, and how you are helping us do ours!
Cary, Job Poster
Thank you for writing and publishing the newsletter. For me, the message, the inspiration, and the employment opportunities mentioned all help me to reflect on what I value most.
Sandra, GFJ Fan
I've used Good Food Jobs to find several of my jobs in the past--it's an excellent resource.
I haven't been on the job hunt for at least three years, but I still look forward to this newsletter.
Caroline, GFJ Fan
With much gratitude for the work you do and the space it makes in our world. Seriously. You all are extraordinary.
Shoshana, GFJ Fan
I want to say how happy I am that your website exists - it's exactly what I always wanted in a job search and was elated once I found it truly does exist!
Stacey, GFJ Fan
I have been getting your newsletters for over a year, and they are an extreme inspiration. I am a proactive 17 year old, and I have known I want to work in the food movement for two years. Convincing my parents that I could have a successful life will following my dream path took a while, and your database of jobs was a great piece of evidence to show them. I would have gone my own way even without their permission, but having their support in amazing, and for that I give a big thanks to you.
Katelyn, GFJ Fan
We are excited to continue our approach into the food world through local food, sustainable agriculture, and gastrognome ideas. Your site lets us do that.
Ryn & Rohan, GFJ Fan
I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for this newsletter and for all the other newsletters that have come before. Somehow they are often delivering exactly the messages I need to hear. And that is profoundly comforting and uplifting.
Cara, Newsletter Reader
I've been following GFJ all along and it's groups like yours and The Greenhorns that inspire me to keep going. I so appreciate your virtual community-building.
Heather, GFJ Fan
Thank you for that ignited spark of inspiration and thank you for your wise words and your genuine love of food and the world and finding the invisible synapses where we can share messages and all connect.
