Don't do this career for money. It will not make you rich. Decide if you want to do private sector or government. Private sector definitely has more breadth, but it's volatile. Government does not give you much opportunity to stretch, the job really doesn't change from day-to-day, and you have to deal with government rhetoric. However, benefits are great. You have to love what you do. You have to really love the nutrition, dietetics, food science, food technology field.
