My Food Job Rocks!
About This Show
There is very little awareness of what the people in the food industry actually do. This stems back to the lack of knowledge and awareness of the range of degree courses and programs available that will equip them for a career in food.
My FoodJobRocks! by Adam Yee is the first podcast of its kind that allows listeners to hear directly from people who are in the food industry and have a passion for what they do. They share how they became involved in food and describe what it is they do, plus a few more fun questions just to keep things entertaining. Listen to them here, and stay tuned for a new episode every Monday.

Ep. 110 - Adam Gets Interviewed at NCSU: All About Origins, Career Advice and Credibility
4 days ago
This is a special interview where I get on skype and talk to not only Dr. Harris, but his whole class! In terms of content, this is a standard information about me, how my food job rocks, the life of a food scientist in my eyes, and what I’ve learned podcasting. If you’ve been a long time listener of the show, you’ll realize that I say the same things in previous episodes, or articles but unless you’re super obsessed with me, you’ll learn some things about me that is a great summary of the content I’ve produced in the past 110 episodes. You can even say I’ve updated my philosophy quite a bit. So key takeaways in this episode is that I distill the tactics for getting say, a job. Or switching jobs. Not only that, but the power of asking questions and the power of building your credibility. You’ll hear no laugh track on this one. Its either because I’m not funny or I couldn’t hear the crowd. I’ll be doing double episodes in the next 3 weeks and this is a special segment. I had the opportunity to help Darin Detwiler with his class, Global Economics and he allowed me to interview 6 of his amazing guest lecturers and use it as supplemental information. These types of technologies include Geospatial Technology, Food Fraud, and Analytics. All super interesting technology. Some of the lecturers are not focused on food actually, but they’re good none-the-less. So yea, expect 2 episodes a week, Monday and Wednesday.
