Though I'm currently still in pastry school (almost done!), I have been one of the lucky ones who has an industry-related part-time job and every now and again get a "freelance" job of making a cake or something similar for individuals. With graduation on the horizon, I've been applying to full-time jobs, mostly at fancy restaurants. I had the opportunity to come in as a trail for a night and had a great experience. I didn't get the job though. But given that I was told I didn't have enough experience with plated desserts, this got me thinking. The person who made the decision left for the night before service started so he didn't even see the quality of my work that I was allowed to do for dessert orders. He also didn't ask for a portfolio, but if he had, he would have seen plenty of pictures of plated desserts I had done for school. And if it was just about experience, he could see what experience I had (or didn't) written on my resume! But this is irrelevant to my question. I got over the rejection, but it gave me an idea. I used to be a graphic designer so I have a very neatly designed resume with a little illustration I use on it. What if I were to include a couple photos of my best work (small, of course) along the side or something like that? That way, maybe people can see that although I'm a student, it's not like I stand around and do nothing in the kitchen. Would this kind of thing be frowned upon?
