Bartending - A Recession Proof Job!
Why Be A bartender?
Have you ever looked around a bar, curiously envying the happy bartenders having a great time while raking in gobs of money? Did you wonder how they learned the skills necessary to pour drinks so quickly, remember all those recipes, and keep their cool all at the same time? How did they get there? Could I learn to do that?
Bartending can be a tough world to break into. Corner bars with on-the-job training are few and far between. Customers are more educated and sophisticated than ever before. They come from all over the world, they know about wine, they enjoy the scene and they have become more demanding.
Customers are looking for a bartender who is as knowledgeable, as personable, and as demanding as they are. In this more professional bartending environment-if you're not fast, organized, and efficient you surely won't last very long.
Not surprisingly, 7 out of 10 bartenders will attend a professional bartending school to facilitate their entry into this lucrative profession. Without the professional bartending training that is all but required by popular bars, clubs and restaurants these days, you won't stand a chance of beating out those that have it.
Look for your school in the state of your choice at the main menu on the left of our site. If you go to a state and there is no school listed, it is because we are either not familiar with that particular school, or we are aware of them and cannot recommend that specific bartending school.
This is an excellent time to enter the field of mixology. The economy is in a recession, gas prices are at an all time high and many people are concerned about their jobs. During times like these, the public in general may hold off spending large amounts of money on real estate, vacations, appliances, cars, and clothing.
However, history has proven that bars maintain their business levels and many actually increase during tough times like these. Professional Mixologists are always in demand!
