Securing Employment (Resume and Interviewing)

Bartending School Bartending Jobs Interviewing and Hiring

You’ve taken all the lessons and have passed all the quizzes. It’s now almost time for you to go out and get that first bar job.  Many beginning bartenders may be timid when it comes to applying and interviewing because they lack practical experience behind the bar.  This program is designed for you to receive “on the job” training in addition to the study of this virtual textbook.  Many aspiring bartenders sometimes find themselves stuck between that rock and a hard place, meaning they don’t have the experience to get the job, however, they need the job to develop the experience.  It can be mystifying as to how one gets past this hurdle.  Well, have no fear because the following topics are going to steer you in the right direction to grab a hold of your opportunity and start bartending in no time.  Let’s take a look…..

Main Features

The most important part here is that you are open to new ideas and ways of doing things. Different bars and owners and managers have different ways of doing things. If you convey that you are open and willing to learn to do the job the way the manager/bar owner asks – you have a really good shot at getting hired.

Never act like a know it all, always be open and willing to learn new ways. Just because you’ve always done something one way doesn’t mean there isn’t a better way to do something. There is much to learn!

What is the target audience?

This is aimed at those looking to go out and get a real bartending job.
