Blogging is a great way to grow your personal brand to help you land a job. WordPress is the best blogging platform and WP Engine is the best WordPress host out there (we use them for ODOJ and ODOI). Right now AppSumo has an unbelievable deal for a year of WP Engine hosting for $99 (usually $348, and worth it).

Yesterday I went shopping at Whole Foods. I bought a bunch of produce that I’m sure was shipped in from all over the world–they aren’t growing strawberries around here this time of year. While I love being able to eat out of season fruits and vegetables, I realize that I’m often paying more to get lower quality food. We’ve certainly seen a movement towards more locally grown food, but even a Michigan cherry has to travel 100s of miles to get to me in Chicago. What if food only had to moved downstairs to get to you at the supermarket? That’s what BrightFarms is a New York, NY based company that is trying to accomplish this. They design, finance, build, and operate “hydroponic greenhouse farms at, or near, supermarkets, eliminating time, distance and cost from the food supply chain.” They take on almost all of the risk and only require the supermarket to guarantee that they’ll buy the output.

Are You Bright Enough?

Most supermarkets have massive roofs that get lots of sunlight. They’re the perfect place for a farm. It only took BrightFarms to figure out how to make it work. They’re already working on projects with big names like Whole Foods, A&P, and Schnuck Markets. How could major supermarkets not want to work with BrightFarms when they can offer higher quality produce at a lower price and with lower environmental costs? I’m sure that it’s not really that easy, but BrightFarms’ willingness to do all of the hard work greatly increases the chance that a greenhouse farms on top of supermarkets will be commonplace. If that’s a future that you want to work towards, take a look at BrightFarms’ Jobs page. Right now they have a few openings including Grower (New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Minnesota or New York) and Account Manager (this one requires a few years of experience). They also say that they “are always interested in hearing from exceptional, highly motivated individuals,” so don’t be afraid to reach out about an unlisted position.
