Why Go To a Bar School If You Can’t Get a Job After?

Students tend to leave bar school jobless with empty pockets. It is important to learn about the bartending process, and more bar owners aren’t willing to train someone. New bartenders should have realistic expectations upon entering bartending school and avoid pouring thousands of dollars into bartending school. A bartending diploma issues no guarantees.

Diplomas are needed. The majority of new bartenders completed bartending school prior to working. Bar owners highly favor the experience to save their training costs. Furthermore, they are motivated to hire bartenders with certifications for lower insurance premiums.

Some would argue that a majority of successful bartenders never set out to become bartenders. Instead, they started as waiters, waitresses, and bus boys, and they worked their way up. This is also true. The problem with this statement is this is not a clear or guaranteed path. Bartending school catapults people to their career faster than “climbing up the ladder.”

I think the best way to approach the bartending school question involves your personal goals in becoming a bartender. If you want to learn how to become a bartender as a career and not just a job, I do think that having worked through all of the roles in a bar will help you better understand the entirety of bar operation. If, however, you are more interested in jumping into a bartending job in order to make some good money over the course of a few years, or to get a second job to bolster your income, bartending school is a good way to get a jump-start on the basics that every bartender must know.

And The Million-Dollar Question- Is It Really Worth It?

If you don’t have a thorough knowledge on liquors, drinks and bar tools but you still want to get into bartending, then, this might be what you’re looking for. If on the other hand, you are one of those who knows a lot about making and mixing drinks/cocktails and is still looking for more, we do have courses that can broaden your understanding and grip with bartending.

If you put down money on Bartending School, whole-heartedly get through the training andcomplete it, then successfully land a job, you won’t be complaining about the money youinvested. When you get off the clock every night with a pocket full of cash, that few hundred dollars you spent on classes will seem like a pittance.
