Exploring This Job

If this type of work interests you, start exploring the field by making candy at home. Fudge, taffy, candied apples, and chocolate covered pretzels are among the sweets you can make in your own kitchen. Is there a candy manufacturing plant in your area? Call to see if tours are available. The Hershey's chocolate plant in Hershey, Pennsylvania, for example, offers tours of their operation to the public. Get part-time or summer work at a candy store or the candy department of a large store where you can learn what products are popular, how the candy is stored and handled, and how to package it for customers. If there is a candy manufacturer in your area, you may be able to get part-time or summer work as a helper while you are still in high school.
