Every year at the time of the Graduation Ceremony in July, Shanghai Young Bakers organises a Career Fair, so that bakeries, restaurants and hotels who wish to hire SYB graduates can present their working opportunities and interview motivated candidates.
Here are some of the companies who share SYB’s commitment to excellence and social responsibility, and who have successfully hired SYB graduates to help them grow to the next level.

Pantry’s Best was founded by an American in Beijing in 2009 with a singular mission: to make the best pies in China. They believe they’ve done just that.
“We’ve scoured the land for the best ingredients to fulfill our mission. We import butter from New Zealand, cream cheese from Australia, and dark chocolate from Europe. We’ve even managed to hunt down rhubarb for our strawberry rhubarb pies. You won’t be disappointed by the result: flakey, buttery pies with scrumptious filling. And our pies are always made fresh to order.”
