How to Write an Irresistible Resume

You have less than 30 seconds to impress the bar manager with your resume. Needless to say, it’s important that you have a good one, especially if you have no experience.

I know how hard it can be when you’re new to the industry and you’ve got no experience. Landing your first job is tough, and then you’ve got to learn all the skills that come with being a bartender. It’s a lot for anyone to learn.

It condenses the most important insights about all aspects of bartending, and gives you the best building blocks to accelerate your career and become a great bartender fast.
