FoodGrads Podcast

Nov 30, 2020

Welcome to episode 12 of the FoodGrads podcast, the podcast where we explore careers in the food, beverage and hospitality industries. On this week's podcast I interview Sarah Condruk a Marketing Coordinator at Give and Go Prepared Foods. Give and Go Foods is a Canadian manufacturer of premium frozen, thaw and sell baked goods. Give & Go produces a wide range of dessert and sweet baked goods that are sold to leading retailers and foodservice operators across the world.

In this episode, we dive into the exciting world of food industry marketing. Sarah teaches me about her role at Give and Go Foods, their extensive range of bakery goodies and what the structure of her department looks like. We also talk about finding a job after graduation in a sector outside of your degree, in Sarah's case, it was going from a science degree to the marketing department. Finally, we chat about her transition between school and a full-time job and how switching to a structured Monday to Friday job is a challenge in itself.

Sarah was a really easy person to chat with and it just made the interview fly by. I love Sarah's story because it goes to show that in the food industry you can start in a science degree but end up in a different field. It also shows the importance of trying new things and talking to others because it is better to try something new than stick with something you know you don't
