Become a FoodGrads Campus Ambassador (FCA)

 

FoodGrads is an interactive platform for the Food & Beverage Industry, focused on closing the gap between students, recent graduates and employers.

The FG Campus Ambassador Program was designed to provide an opportunity for our students or recent graduates to showcase their talents and to develop real working experience with support from industry.

As a FG Campus Ambassador, you will be an advocate for the food & beverage industry by sharing the benefits of this growing industry with your peers.  You are a voice for food industry topics, sharing your food passion topics at campus or on FG social media channels.  You can tell your peers about the FG platform so they can educate themselves on the different career options, receive guidance, provide training while developing your leadership skills, etc.  Most importantly, you can add FoodGrads Campus Ambassador to your LinkedIn profile and resume.
