Webinar: Entering the Job Market as a New Food Scientist

Canadian Institute of Food Science and Technology and Food in Canada , Canada's food and beverage processing magazine, have partnered to deliver a webinar to CIFST members and stakeholders every Wednesday from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. EST.

In this webinar, our team of panelists will answer some questions about seeking careers in food science in Canada:

  • What are ways to show your value to a prospective employer?
  • What are some creative job searching strategies as people enter or transition in the food manufacturing workplace? (in addition to registering with Food Grads!)
  • How can you make your resume stand out? Is a resume the only way?
  • What continuous learning or "extracurricular" strategies are helping you get ahead?
  • What skills do you wish you had learned in school?

In lieu of a speaker's fee, CIFST will be making a donation to Food Banks Canada . The organization is  dedicated to helping Canadians living with food insecurity by supporting a network of Provincial Associations, affiliate food banks, and food agencies that work at the community level to relieve hunger. Their work is focused on maximizing collective impact, strengthening local capacity, and reducing the need for food banks.
