Chocolatier is a career that one could start off as a hobby by making home made chocolates which could later turn on to become a very lucrative profession. Chocolatier career is best for those who are creative and have a likeness for sweets. The success of a Chocolatier depends upon having a good business sense and a creative, tasty line of chocolates to draw in the customers.

To start a career in this field after completing a specialised course, the first step is to work under a master Chocolatier. After attaining hands on experience, one can open their own store or work for renowned chocolate brands. Most Chocolatiers begin as pastry or confectionery chefs and after gaining knowledge in the field start their career as Chocolatier. Chocolatiers work in the culinary arts, designing and making elaborate displays in chocolate. They blend different types of chocolate with other ingredients and mold the confection into intricate designs. The career can range greatly from creating chocolates for a local candy store to building elaborate, delicate works of art made entirely out of chocolate for high end customers. 

Chocolatiers can become entrepreneurs of their own and tie up with corporates, gift stores, florists and bakeries to market their products. Being termed as a business with small investment or no investment business, it can be pursued as a part time vocation as well. One can also opt for a career in  the chocolate confectionary industry as a chocolate tester. There are options to work in the hospitality industry on cruise ships, world renowned hotels, resorts and casinos. Some could go on to work for big chocolate makers like Nestle or Cadbury's. Another good option which you can choose is to start a culinary school. 

Quality is the main word in this line of business because it is only with quality that one can build a lifetime relationship with customers. Next priority is the taste and design of the chocolate. Last, but most important is the packaging. Thus to conclude a product that is unique in all respects will still be always in demand and help you to stand out from the crowd of other Chocolatiers.

This job has its difficulties as well. They have to put in long hours of work to attain the target, especially during festival seasons when orders may be in bulk. That too they have to take care not to compromise on quality.
