Why to choose it
The job of a baker varies from job to job. For example, a baker that is employed by a small, local bakery that commonly performs this setting would also produce baked goods mostly by hand. In a large, industrial-scale bakery, it would be more common for many bakers to work together in order to make large quantities of bread and stuff. In this example, a baker would do very little work by hand and would rely largely on machinery to produce bread and such, especially during the preparation phase of production. Bakers typically work according to a tight production schedule that sets numbers for how many of a certain item they must make each day. This is true for bakers working in all types of places. Whether working in a small company or a large kitchen, a baker is required to master the use of a large number of tools in order to make good bread and such. These tools range from simple kitchen tools such as a rolling pin, to complex mixing machines. In any case, becoming a baker takes a huge amount of training as this is a highly skilled job title.
