While I have my own reservations about calling this public health nutrition, I do believe that industry (and those representing food industries) can benefit from someone with training in public health nutrition; although the job description does say lobbying on behalf of EDA, it could still be an interesting position to gain policy experience within the EU institutions, and learn about how they lobby stakeholders and policy makers.

I'm subscribed to a United Nations Community Nutrition and Climate Change eGroup; I'm posting an annoucement with minimal content edits:

I'll admit that back in 2004, no one was using social media the way it is used today. If I'm correct, Facebook was still only for college students, Twitter was nonexistent, and social bookmarking was just becoming popular (Del.ici.ous?). When I was job searching for my first job, I used Google (today I've expanded that to include Bing). Now you can follow organizations via Twitter, subscribe to RSS feeds, and utilize email to make search efforts easier.
What are the best strategies at finding relevant jobs? Listserves? E-mail? Twitter? RSS? Personal acquaintances/networks/referrals? Interning? Volunteering? I'm not sure there is one best answer, but as you become more specialized and experienced the avenues in which you search may shrink. When I pose this question to friends, "How did you find your job, or how are you searching?" I can never get a straight answer. I think there are so many different ways, it makes the job seeker feel inadequate, as if this very question poses a threat to everything they've learned so far. Perhaps it exposes a weakness of not knowing where to look, or not searching hard or long enough. I can't seem to get a straight answer, or a confident answer from anyone. So I went over to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics Finding and Applying for Jobs and Evaluating Offers. They have a bulleted list on how to search and where to search. At the top of the list: personal contacts, school career planning and placement services, and employers.
