If you want to work in a small pub/lounge then get your Smart Serve and apply.

If you want to work in a nightclub then suck the Bar Managers dick!

.

I'm curious to know... how do bartenders, attractive eye-cathing women in particular, "get out of the biz" per se? And what type of occupational endeavors do they pursue in the aftermath of a bartending career?


I'm pretty darn sure some of these stunningly attractive female bartenders would be inclined to take up a job say working as an office admin/executive assistant, with a substantially healthy pay plus all inclusive benefits. That being said, how does one go about soliciting ex-bartenders (or current bartenders) who're prepared to make some extra $bling$ in a far more civilized and respectable work environment (ie: the corporate sector)?

Don't underestimate these 'stunningly attractive female bartenders', or any bartender you see working in a busy club, male or female for that matter. Most of them have professional careers in 'civilized and respectable' work environments and are bartending on weekends because you make a lot of cash in a short period of time. I'm not sure what's not respectable about working in the service industry, or nightlife venues that aren't strip clubs, but anyway...

I currently bartend with a flight attendant, a high school teacher, a real estate agent, a former flight attendant who is a stay at home mom, and two other girls who are pursuing their undergraduate and master's degree. Only one of them is working full-time in the service industry.

To address Cocoa Butter's original question, if you want to work in a nightclub and have zero experience forget it. Start off by getting your SmartServe certificate (you can do this online). Then get a job as a banquet bartender at a hotel or convention centre, or become a server/cocktailer at a corporate restaurant chain where there is room to move onto the bar after a few months.

Work on a service bar to develop speed, and once you have some experience under your belt, start applying at nightclubs. The best advice I can offer when you're applying in this city is to be PERSISTENT, always apply in person with the GM at the venue around 9pm on a Friday or Saturday before they open. You're going to face a lot of rejection even as a female, for a lot of reasons, so be prepared and keep trying. It's very competitive. Good luck!

Yes, go to every place you can and apply. I've been in the restaurant business for 10 years, bartending almost 5. I'm currently looking for a new job as well. Its very hard to get hired in as a bartender, just keep trying.

What are the major hurdles of getting a bartending job? What are the places usually looking for in a candidate?
