I am currently working in Paul Rhodes Bakery as an assistant baker and am really enjoying the work so far. However, this was not my initial plan and I had a bit of a rocky start to begin with. When I first started to think about my placement, London came to mind straight away as there is endless options when it comes to finding a job and something for everyone I also thought it was an ideal opportunity to get to experience London properly not to mention I wasn’t a million miles away from home. I knew I wanted to work in a bakery and started the process by applying to many bakeries around London hoping that I would hear from at least one, but it was definitely more difficult than I had thought and I got very little response back. As I was only looking for a twelve-week placement and couldn't start until September I wasn't a priority and the people looking for summer work got first preference. It was also a mistake not going over to London and physically walking into these places with my CV as I think this would have been more effective and showed more enthusiasm. So when I eventually got a job offer I took it up without hesitation.
