Search ResultsWorking Groups: Career Pathways & Image (Task Force)
A collection of resources from the Career Profiles project, including profiles of workers in Vermont's food system, resources for teachers, and background information.
The Career Pathways and Image Task Force created three career path profiles of people with food system careers as a pilot project, with the overall goal of attracting younger people to careers in the food system. Local farmers were interviewed to create the profiles, with a specific focus on the opportunities that were utilized and the skills necessary for their careers. The profiles also include career advice for aspiring farmers and contact information for students that are interested in following up.
As part of the F2P Career Profiles Project, the 2017-2018 Agricultural Technology class at Randolph Technology Career Center interviewed three local farmers to compare their farm operations and career paths.
This guidebook explores the wide range of careers within our food system, and potential next steps for pursuing those careers. It includes occupational titles, wage and job opening data, as well as information about the types of degrees, certifications, or other training that may be required. It is designed to complement the Food System Career Profiles and Pathways report (2016), as it provides additional information for students about careers they become interested in through the Profiles. Created by Elizabeth McCarty with support from the Career Profiles Task Force.
