Next Steps: From no Job to Bartending Brilliance

Throughout this guide, you’ve learned what it takes to break into the industry and become a bartender. What’s more, you’ve learned the mindsets required for success in this industry and detailed strategies you can start using today to land your dream job.

  • In Chapter 1, we looked at the lifestyle of a bartender – both the good AND the bad and whether or not this career is a good fit for you.
  • In Chapter 2, I showed you how anyone can become a great bartender. It doesn’t take any specific skills-sets or innate natural talent. It takes the right attitude and the willingness to learn.
  • In Chapter 3, we explored whether or not you should go to bartending school and what your alternatives are. If it were me, I’d go with the alternatives ;-).
  • In Chapter 4, you learned EVERYTHING you need to know to write an irresistible bartender resume.
  • In Chapter 5, we went through 7 different strategies you can use to look for work. And we also looked at the resume dropping method in more detail because it’s highly effective.
  • In Chapter 6, we looked at the interview process and what you need to do (and say) to impress the hiring manager and get a trial shift.
  • Finally, in Chapter 7, you learned exactly what you need to do & focus on during the final stage in the hiring process – your trial shift.
