Every year in mid-July, SYB organises a Career Fair which allows companies interested in hiring SYB graduates to present themselves and interview motivated candidates. Companies range from private bakeries, pastry shops, cafés, hotels, restaurants, ingredient companies, and come from Shanghai and other provinces in China.

Barney's Bakery

Barney’s Bakery was established in October 2013 and is a local Shanghainese brand. It began from a little dream of a local Huangdu woman, as she was hoping that she could get fresh baked bread and cakes from a bakery nearby. Located in Anting town, Jiading District, Barney’s Bakery is a community bakery which provides fresh and delicious food for neighbours, the students who live nearby, while also serving as a gathering place for locals. Everything, from the ingredients to the products, from every drop of coffee to every piece of cake, brims with the team members’ understanding of food, design and life.

Two of our graduates from the class of 2014 currently work at Barney’s Bakery.
