How to become a Baker:

If you are someone that is constantly in the kitchen trying to perfect a cake or simply bake some bread or cookies because you enjoy it, then becoming a baker might be an excellent career choice for you.

What is a Baker:

A baker is an individual that produces, bakes and sells various foods, such as, rolls, biscuits, bread, cookies and cakes, just to name a few.

How to become a Baker:

1. Complete high school: Due to the fact that bakers work with a lot of measurements, equivalents and fractions, it is very important that your knowledge and grades in math remain high. It is also a requirement for your to have a GED or high school diploma in order to become a baker, so make sure that you complete high school.

2. Practice, Practice, Practice: It is very important as a baker to enjoy and perfect what you do. If you do not enjoy it then it is probably not wise to make this your career. As for the perfecting part, it is going to take a while to get things baked perfectly, and that will take time, patience and practice. It could be a good idea to get a part-time job at a small bakery or coffee shop (one that bakes their own cookies, muffins etc.)

3. Attend culinary school: This will increase your knowledge and skills as a baker and will also give you a lot of experience in the kitchen.

4. Become an apprentice: Not only does this make it easier for you to get a job as a baker in the future, but it also helps you get the practice, skills and knowledge needed to become a baker.

5. Be on the lookout: Check for available positions for bakers, locally (newspapers, online etc). It doesn't matter whether you are ready to start working yet or not, this helps you see what experience, skills or qualifications employers may be looking for in your area.

6. Get a job: Become employed as a baker. It is very important to be comfortable with the company/business you are working for. Do some research and make sure that you are happy with them. As a baker, it is important to build yourself for a couple of years in one company and it is not going to be easy if you are not happy where you are working.
