Ok I need some help here. I'm going to an impromptu interview next week for an assistant baker position. I haven't worked in a bakery since college (co-op), I have baked plenty on my own since then. My question is I have one person who says I should bake something to showcase my talent and then I have someone else telling me to just bring my portfolio. What would you guys do?

I would say the portfolio would do....BTW, I live in West Carrollton just South of Dayton. It's nice to know a caker this close to me on here!

Yeah, portfolio would be best, I think...not too pushy. They probably have a small cake in there waiting for you to decorate on site. I had to do that when I applied at a cake shop once.

I'd bring my portfolio as well.

Bring your portfolio. They may ask you to make something, or even schedule you to trail for a day or more to try you out, but for the interview itself, your portfolio and CV/resume are all you need.

Good Luck!!! I hope you get it....this economy is something else! My son has been looking for a job, his first, and no one will hire him because its his first. It seems like everyone wants experience but no one will help those get experience... but it looks like you won't have a problem! Let us know!

Well I have been offered the job, full time with benefits. The pay is a little less then what I'm making now which would mean some juggling of the finances. I have to give her an answer today as I would need to start by Aug. 1st because she is going on maternity leave. Now I just have to figure out what to do

Well I took the job and have never felt so good about a decision before in my life. Can't wait to learn new tricks and tech.
