The French Pastry School hosts a career fair for soon to be graduates

Our students receive hundreds of hours of intensive, hands-on education every term. The goal of The French Pastry School is not only to teach students the techniques and theories behind gaining a new skill but also to make sure they can translate that skill into a successful career.

Two months prior to graduation, The French Pastry School organized a career fair for its students so they could be introduced to the myriad job opportunities available to them.  Many sought specific job openings, others a general insight into the various branches of the food industry.

Here are the businesses that were in attendance:

  • Four Seasons Hotel
  • Rivers Casino
  • One Off Hospitality (Nico, Blackbird, Publican)
  • Lettuce Entertain You
  • The Signature Room
  • Element Collective (Nellcote, RM, Old Town Social)
  • The Bristol
  • Zed451
  • Food For Thought
  • Blue Plate
  • Oak Mill Bakery
  • Cheshire Cat Confections
  • CARBA
  • Mariano's
  • Whole Foods
  • Jewel Foods
  • Treasure Island Foods
  • Elysia Root
  • Sugar Bliss Cake Boutique

Students were able to converse with potential employers, schedule stages, and submit resumes and applications. The current term will graduate on December 20, 2013 during the busiest season of the food industry's calendar.

New sessions of the full-time programs, L'Art de la Pâtisserie and L'Art du Gâteau begin on January 6, 2013 - the school is still accepting applications.  For more information, please contact info@frenchpastryschool.com or visit the Programs page.
