Good afternoon Pastry Forums
Starting next week, I am making the rounds of all the Bakeries in my area to get a job/career start.
I am in my early 30s, "lite" baking experience (biscuits/cornbread in a restaurant) and some cooking experience.
Do you have any suggestions to help me get a job in a Bakery?
What do the owners/managers want to hear, see?
What is the best time to come by?
Would I have a better chance of success if I make an appointment?
For me, I am making this a career choice. I have proven sales skills(in person/phone) , warehouse (inventory/forklift) but I want to make a career in the culinary field. Currently I have a part time job in the evenings at a restaurant and I wanted to get something earlier in the day. And baking has always been something that has intrigued me.
Thank you for your help.
