Do you need to be an expert in craft beer to work in the industry? According to Abby Bruins, "before working in beer, my background was very sports heavy as I worked for a handful of professional and collegiate teams. I’m confident that having UVM’s Business of Craft Beer professional certificate on my resume assisted with catching eyes during the interview process as well as preparing me for the industry."
There are additional resources at UVM to help give job candidates a leg up. The Business of Craft Beer certificate program offers courses in operations, marketing, distribution, and sales for craft beer. All courses are online, taught by industry professionals and encourage networking—another key to potentially landing that coveted job in craft beer.
