Name: Connie Yuen Former job: Office manager New Job: Head chocolatier, Nestle Kit Kat Studio After working as an office manager in the education sector, I always had a yearning to do something I really loved.
Both my parents were chefs and I always had a passion for baking. I love to eat cake too and decided to make a career out of it.
I did a lot of research on where to study and William Angliss Institute stood out.
My decision was cemented when an executive pastry chef of a leading hotel said “William Angliss Institute graduates would be my first choice if I need to hire more staff”.
The teachers have specialty knowledge and always teach best practice. With employability in mind, they have always offered to be our referees, give us advice on how best to improve our skills and have recommended job and work experience opportunities.
As someone with no prior experience, this has been invaluable to me.
My current employment at the Nestle Kit Kat Studio was brought to my attention due to a staff member recommending me for the job and I am very grateful to have this support behind me.
Now that I have work experience in the pastry kitchens at two major five- star hotels, I believe hotel work or catering would be a fantastic fit for my personality and passion. I would love to be responsible for the high teas and desserts that everyone looks forward to.
