Why am I posting this to my resume blog, you ask? Well, in addition to showing off a passion of mine - baking - this apple pie exemplifies a few very transferable skills. First, baking requires the ability to read and follow a recipe (in the case of an apple pie, two recipes: one for the filling and one for the crust). Thus, I am clearly able to interpret and understand directions. Furthermore, I baked this pie all by myself, exemplifying my ability to work well independently and without constant supervision. Granted, I have watched my mom make an apple pie countless times and, according to her, she actually taught me how to make an apple pie when I was about 2 weeks old so perhaps I had a bit of a leg up on baking this pie. And I did have to borrow the pie plate from my mom as well, but that only serves to demonstrate my ability to recognize and utilize the resources that are available to me. Additionally, I enjoy taking on a challenge, in this case that of baking something that I have no prior experience baking. Not to mention the fact that I have my mom's amazing apple pie recipe and bake various delicious items frequently...often with the specific intent of bringing it to work to share with my co-workers.
