Andy’s German Bakehaus, an artisan bakery established in 1957, are hiring an experienced pastry chef familiar with heavy duty, high volume fast-paced pastry production and product development.

Please drop off resumé at our store at 935 Commercial Drive in Vancouver, BC, or send to andysbakery@gmail.com

Sven Becker, 44, who bought Andy’s German Bakehaus on Commercial Drive in September, 2015.

Becker started his new career modestly enough four years ago, baking German-style cheesecakes in Bon Bon Bakery’s kitchen during their downtimes. He had just finished a research job at the Biodiversity Institute of Ontario and turned 40 years old. He turned down a post-doctoral position at the University of B.C. and decided to make a break for something new.

German baking is traditionally less sweet than most North American cakes. Becker made good cakes, and he soon found a modest market selling to little cafes, private customers and other bakeries. When Bon Bon closed while moving locations, he started renting the kitchen at Andy’s. Two years later, the owners offered him the business.

Messe Reise Markt Sucht Nachfolger

0 Comment

Eventuell hat ja jemand Interesse. Ich gebe das einfach uneigennützig mal weiter:

Liebe Kundinnen, liebe Kunden,
nach sechs Jahren Verlängerungen ist es nun, mit 71 für mich an der Zeit, mein Unternehmen einem Nachfolger zu übergeben. Herumhorchen im Kollegenkreis und Inserate brachten bisher leider keinen Erfolg. Es wäre sehr schade dieses erfolgreiche Unternehmen einfach eingehen zu lassen. Für mich war es die schönste Arbeit in meiner beruflichen Laufbahn. Deshalb meine Frage an Sie: kennen Sie jemanden in Ihrem Umfeld der Interesse am MesseReiseMarkt.de haben könnte?

Handwerkliche und kaufmännische Kenntnisse und Fähigkeiten sollte er haben. Der Umgang mit Kunden sollte ihm ebenso leicht fallen wie zuverlässige und langfristige Planung. Die familiäre Beziehung muss mehrwöchige Dienstreisen im Herbst und Winter aushalten. Dafür ist von April bis Oktober die große Freiheit. Ich spreche bewusst von “er”, die meisten interessierten Frauen schieden bisher wegen der damit verbunden körperlich anstrengenden Arbeit,
dem Aufbau des Messestandes, und dem Fahren mit Anhänger aus. Natürlich ließe sich der Tätigkeitsbereich hervorragend mit einem touristischen Unternehmen, dass selbst Auftritte auf Messen bräuchte, hervorragend kombinieren.

  • Handwerkliche und kaufmännische Kenntnisse und Fähigkeiten haben
  • Einen Gesunden Rücken haben
  • Familiär flexibel und gerne unterwegs sein
  • Führerschein für Kleintransporter mit Hänger haben

Manfred Reuther bietet Einarbeitung und Planungshilfe für die neue Messesaison an. Man kann ihn bei info@messe-reisemarkt.de erreichen. Er ist auch gewillt Mitarbeit bei Messebau und -standbetreung als Subunternehmer für einige Jahre durchzuführen… Die Firma ist in München.

DESCRIPTION

Currently, we are looking for Language Quality Assurance Reviewers for various languages (Thai, Hindi, Japanese, Spanish (Spain and Latin America), Traditional Chinese, French (France), Italian, Thai, Czech, Portuguese Brazilian and more…)

At Globalme, the Language Quality Assurance Reviewer is the guard of quality translations. You will need to review localized products such as websites, mobile applications, games, training etc. and ensure that these products are ready to be released to target markets. Some products will also require light functional testing. In addition to functional and linguistic reviews, a Quality Assurance Reviewer creates style guides and provides linguistic input as needed.

This is a project based, on call, part time position that can turn into a full time for the right candidates.

REQUIREMENTS

A language Quality Assurance Reviewer:

Is a native speaker of a target language, with higher education completed in their country.
Has excellent language skills (both in their own language and in English).
Pays close attention to detail – this is a must.
Is able to read and follow complex instructions.
Has a curious personality – you will need to investigate things, search on the Internet in ways that you have probably never searched before. Simply, you need a curious personality.

Problem solver — you figure out problems that rarely have textbook solutions. “Let me figure this out” is a sentence you use often.
Open to receiving feedback — you focus on solutions and improvements rather than finding excuses why something doesn’t work.
Positive — you have a “nothing is impossible attitude”. You believe that everything can be done.
Self-starter — you see a clear link between your actions and their outcomes. You don’t sit around and wait for others to tell you what to do.

Von Denis Hercog:

Liebe deutschsprachige Community in Vancouver,

vielleicht ein paar Worte vorab zu mir: Vor etwa fünf Monaten habe ich einen Entschluss gefasst: Es wurde Zeit für eine Veränderung, es wurde Zeit ein neues Kapitel aufzuschlagen. Vermutlich kennt ihr das Gefühl, vermutlich sind viele in dieser Gruppe durch eine ähnliche Phase im Leben gegangen. Ich hatte also meinen Job gekündigt, meine Wohnung aufgegeben, alles verkauft, was sich noch hat verkaufen lassen, besten Freunden und der geliebten Familie auf Wiedersehen gesagt und bin mit 18kg meiner letzten Besitztümer losgezogen. Nachdem ich im Juni in Vancouver angekommen bin habe ich mich von dem Bedürfnis treiben lassen etwas zu Reisen. Nach den vielen Jahren Vollgas im Studium und dann anschließend in der Arbeit, Jahre der Aufopferung für den Job, in welchen ich teilweise wochenlang nichts anderes gemacht habe außer Arbeiten, Essen und hin und wieder schlafen (was auch irgendwie okay way, weil ich meinen Job geliebt habe), war das die richtige Entscheidung. Also bin ich im Sommer drei Monate in den USA gereist, habe wundervolle Menschen kennengelernt und mich persönlich und physisch gefordert. Nun wird es jedoch ernst, ich ich möchte der Herausforderung in die Augen schauen und endlich in Kanada ankommen. Ausgewählt habe ich Vancouver (auch wenn ich Toronto wirklich fantastisch finde und mir auch hier vorstellen könnte zu leben), da ich hier bereits erste Kontakte habe. Ankommen werde ich am 1. Dezember, und das Abenteuer für mich beginnt, die einmalige Chance diesen Schritt zu wagen und mit voller Energie und allem Mut daran zu arbeiten, in allen Bereichen des Lebens, 8000km weg von Zuhause, Fuß zu fassen, privat wie beruflich.

Denis HercogIch habe in Deutschland 7 Jahre in Stuttgart in einer Filmproduktion gearbeitet, und für Kunden wie Bosch, Mercedes, Sixt, Festo, L’Oréal, etc. Filme produziert, meist für den Online-Einsatz, aber auch für’s TV. Ich bin mir sicher, dass ich – nach einer nicht ganz kalkulierbaren Investition an Zeit und Energie – einen Job finden kann, ob es bei einer Filmproduktion, einer Werbeagentur oder kundenseitig im Marketing ist. Ich werde für den Anfang jedoch ganz bald ein Zimmer brauchen. Wenn ich es mir aussuchen könnte, wäre das nördlich King Edward Ave und westlich Commercial Dr, nicht über 650CA$ und möglichst nicht im Keller =), ansonsten bin ich flexibel mit Allem (Nichtraucher, organisiert und sauber – wohl berufsbedingt – und absolut umgänglich). Gleichzeitig werde ich wohl einen Job brauchen um die Zeit zu überbrücken, bis ich in meinem Berufsfeld einen Job finde. Ich rechne etwa mit zwei Monaten, okay, ich hoffe es werden „nur“ zwei Monate :-/ Ich werde mich mit Leuten aus der Branche treffen müssen, (Regisseure, Kameramänner, Maskenbildner, Ausstatter, etc.) genau so wie die Filminfrastruktur prüfen muss (Filmstudios, Tonstudios, Technikverleihe, etc.) und Treffen mit potenziellen Arbeit- oder Auftraggebern (Agenturen, Filmproduktionen, Kunden) ausmachen werde. Und wenn ich es mir hier aussuchen könnte, dann gerne etwas mehr als „Minimum Wage“ und nicht zum Waschen von Tellern =) Die Frage ist, ob ich es mir aussuchen kann … Aber: Ich kann ganz klar punkten mit Erfahrungen im Kundenumgang,  … ich bin technisch versiert, kenne mich mit Excel, Word, Photoshop, Schnittprogrammen und allerlei anderer Software bestens aus, ich lerne sehr schnell und bin auch handwerklich nicht unbegabt. Nur ein Hobby-Koch bin ich nicht wirklich, was aber nicht heißt, dass ich das nicht auch noch werden kann 😉 … wäre zumindest seine schöne Herausforderung.

Also wenn hier jemand Zimmer, Job, oder aufmunternde Worte parat hat, immer gerne her damit. Ihr werdet es nicht bereuen.

Hier noch der Link zu meinem aktuellen CV:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/40yfi3l6azy42ld/2017_11_22_Denis_Hercog_02_CV_Resume_EN_small.pdf?dl=0

Danke und frohes Thanksgiving =)

Friends encouraged him. Besides, Becker had romantic memories of his childhood in Germany. “Every village had its own bakery. When you’d go on Sunday morning and knock on the door, they would even bake something for you if you needed it.”

He took the plunge.

“I am the new pastry chef of this new business,” he said. “I don’t even look at the clock. I just go in there and follow my passions and make these pastries, cheesecakes and black forest.”

James would be a valuable asset to any corporate or agency staffing organization.

Having worked with James, I can honestly say that he has unbelievable drive, talent, and a personality that lifts and motivates all those around him to greater levels of success.

Derek Beatty – Derek worked with James at Motorola / Freescale Semiconductor

An unusually high number of the resumes sourced through James were for candidates both well-qualified for our work, and interested in our positions. The longer I worked with him, the better he was as he grew in understanding my specific staffing needs. As a hiring manager, I greatly appreciated the way James showed that he knew my time and attention were valuable.

Eileen Duignan-Woods, P.E. – Eileen was James’s client at Comsys

James is an exceptional recruiter for engineering and related technical work.
