How can an high school student get to work in a danish butter cookie factory? Is it even possible?
I enjoy danish butter cookies and i admire the workers in the factories, it is my dream job. #baking #cooking-and-baking
Of course, why not? If you are of legal working age in your city/state, start with applying for and accepting jobs in any bakery. That will give you the experience you need to obtain your dream job. As suggested in the answer above, do some online research and find local Danish butter cookie factories in your area. If there aren't any, try other cookie factories that are nearby. I believe that no life experience is wasted, so any experience you gain the in industry, even if you think it isn't related, will be helpful.
As a business owner, I can tell you from experience, that I am more willing to hire someone who shows passion for what they're doing, and a willingness to do what it takes to get the job done, and a willingness to learn everything they can about the business, than I am to hire someone who's worked in the industry for years and just does a so-so job because they just need to work doing something.
Take it from me. I spent most of my adult life working in careers just to make money and earn a living. While that is commendable, I think that if you have something that you're passionate about doing, and can find ways to earn a living doing what you love, you should absolutely do it. I didn't become a chef until I was 40 and have not regretted my career change. Life is too short to spend it in a career you don't love, if you have the opportunity to spend it doing something you're great at and that you enjoy.
I found a website of a company of Danish butter cookies. The link contains the contact of manufactures in the United States, in New York. One tip is you send an email, asking how the selection process in this company.
Another suggestion is yourself start producing your own cookies and sell them in commercial establishments such as shopping malls, bakeries, pastry shops, etc. You can take a course in this area and meet people who can give you more practical tips. What do you think?
Best of Luck!
