How to find an apprenticeship

Joined Jan 12, 2010
I'm looking to switch careers from marketing to pastry and have decided that an apprenticeship would be best for my situation (as I already have enough debt from student loans). I don't need a formal program or anything (I also couldn't find one in Portland, OR), I am just looking to learn and get experience. How should I approach this? Is there a certain protocol, or expectations?

I've thought about just offering to come in on weekends and work for free. But I don't know if that would be helpful enough. Advice anyone?

Find a business with a good name and reputation and volunteer to help them out on nights and weekends. You had the answer all along.

There are a few, I dont know them personally, just by reputation.

very famous spot is VooDoo doughnuts, some of their work is...odd, but a good starting point if you're just starting out
