Careers in Food Science provides detailed guidelines for students and new employees in the food industry to ensure a successful start to their career. Every step towards a rewarding career in this rapidly evolving industry is covered, from which classes to take in college and which degrees to earn, to internships, and finally how to land, and keep, the first job. This book also provides day-to-day examples of what to expect from the many jobs available to help students decide what to do and where to go.

The food industry includes a wide array of fields and careers not only in food production and in academia, but also in government and research institutions.
