Bartending Resume Tips

If you’re looking for a bartending job, having a well thought out resume with the right information is a must. Today, many establishments that advertise bartending jobs require you to send a resume before an interview.

Bartending Resume

A good resume will help

Without a good resume designed to get their attention, you’ll never get called in for an interview. Ruby Jones, a Human Resources person at a Marriott Hotel ‘when we advertise a bartending job we get at least 25 resumes. Most of the resumes I don’t bother to look at because they don’t look professional and look like they were submitted by a person in the fifth grade. I see typos, misspellings, and a long list of job experience that has nothing to do with bartending.

The job is for bartending and I want to see what they know about mixing drinks’ she told us. ‘This is a big hotel and we constantly have 10-20 jobs that we’re recruiting for. I get hundreds of resumes a day and if they don’t look good, I don’t bother reading them.’
At the American Bartending Schools in Palm Desert , instruction is offered on how to do it the right way.
1. Keep your bartending job resume short. Preferably, on one page.

  • Human Resource recruiters may receive hundreds of resumes a day. They don’t have time to read long boring resumes.

2. Put your bartending education and bartending experience first.

  • You’re applying for a bartending job. Prospective employers want to know what your bartending experience is. If you’re a graduate of a bartending school, list what you have learned at the school. The Human Resources person reviewing your resume may not know is taught at a bartending school. You have to educate them. At American Bartending School we have a lecture that trains you how to describe what you learned at the school and why you’re qualified to fill the job.

3. List any job experience that you had dealing with the public.

  • Bartending is a people job. You be serving and interacting with new customers daily. Jo

4. Proof read

  • There is nothing worse than having typos and incorrect spelling on your bartending resume. Have another person review for mistakes.

5. Use Bullet Points

  • Employers don’t have the time (or patience) to read long paragraphs of text. Use bullet point and short sentences to describe your bartending experience and education.

6. You don’t need to list all your work experiences

  • Employers are interested in what you know about bartending. Your job as a noble prize winner may impress your mother, but it has nothing to do with making drinks.

7. You don’t need to list all of your education

  • The only time I would list my education is if I went to bartending school. You don’t need a college degree to be a good bartender.

8. Use a picture

  • You want to stand out from the many other resumes that are being submitted for the bartending job. A nice head shot of your smiling face should make a favorable impression. A bartender is often the first person a new customer comes in contact with. A bartender who makes a neat, smiling appearance is what they want.

9. Stick to the Facts

  • Don’t waste your time putting in irrelevant information. Political affiliations, religion and sexual preference are not necessary

10. List All Your Contact Information

  • List all of your contact phone numbers. Give your cell number with the area code. Activate your voice mail, and keep your message short and business like. Leave an email address

Become a bartender and start working as a bartender full or part time. In only 1 week you can be fully trained. Call American Bartending School at 800-736-1001

Skinny Cocktails

Low Calorie Cosmopolitan Cocktail

Low Calorie Cosmopolitan Cocktail

Here at American Bartending School we are now teaching our bartender school students how to make low cal cocktails. Like to have a drink and not worry about the extra calories, think about ordering a skinny cocktail for a change.

We teach our future bartenders how to make their own drink mixes using sugar substitutes like Splenda to cut the calories in half of drinks that use a lemon or lime mixer. In the old days of bartending, one of the first things that bartending schools taught students was how to make non-alcoholic mixes. One of the original recipes consisted of fresh lemon or lime juice, sugar and egg white. The egg white when shaken with other ingredients produces a foamy head on the drink.

With America’s bulging waistlines, some of the large chain restaurants are coming up with unique ways to make their customers favorite cocktails more slimming. Many of these low calorie delights are less than 200 calories. My first experience with of these slimming lavations was a Skinny Margarita. It consisted of tequila and fresh lime juice. Since the sugar was left out, it was a little on the tart side to say the least.

Most cocktails like martinis and margaritas have around 300 calories in them. A couple of these before or during dinner can have as many calories as some of the low fat entrees. The success of light beers has shown that many consumers are interested in reducing their calories, while still enjoying their favorite alcoholic beverage.

Skinny cocktails particularly appeal to women and to older consumers. However, by the second or third cocktail, I don’t think anyone is still worrying about calories.

The Cheesecake Factory, known for its extra-large portions, now offers a full array of low calorie cocktails. The Ram Restaurant Chain and Bakery in 5 states sell 80 calorie, Skinny Lime Bite Coolers made with Captain Morgan Lime Bite Rum and diet Coke with a lime garnish. A local Austin chain Z’Tejas Southwestern Grill has a ‘Naturally Skinny’ cocktail menu with six drinks under 250 calories. They use fresh juices, spirits and natural sweeteners.

So, if you want to shed a few pounds after letting loose after the holidays, think about going on a diet of skinny cocktails every now and then.
