“I now have ideas for my career path moving forward that are completely different than I had when I first started school, and that’s all through my involvement with IFT. Because I have seen the possibilities, seen the different career paths of other people, and have a better idea of what interests me and what drives me and what makes me passionate about working in the science of food.”
Page charges are waived for student members publishing in IFT’s journals including the Journal of Food Science (normally $135/published page) and Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety (normally $95/published page)
