About this Event

The Berkeley Food Institute invites you to UC Berkeley’s first ever Food Systems Career Fair: Planting Seeds of Connection & Transformation. We invite students at any point in their academic journey to learn about pathways to create change in food systems. Building a sustainable future requires interdisciplinary voices, so we have invited a diverse set of employers representing policy, community, technology, engineering, business, education, and agriculture all working towards regenerative food systems. Join us to create meaningful connections with on the ground professionals and learn about career pathways. This event is open to all Berkeley students and staff.

During the event, participants will have the opportunity to rotate through four sectors: policy & law, technical assistance, value based supply chains, and community advocacy & education. Please arrive at 1:30pm for registration. An employer lightning round will occur from 2-4pm, when participants can rotate through presentations from different sectors. At 4pm there will be time for free form conversations and networking. We suggest students arrive by 2pm to be able to hear from all employers.

Preparing for the Fair

In preparation for the career fair we will be sharing various career readiness resources. Keep an eye out for our upcoming resume review night hosted by BFI and the Food Institute Graduate Council. Please register to reserve your spot and receive career readiness resources straight to your inbox.
