How to get bar jobs

Bartending jobs are some of the most sought after in the hospitality industry. In Vancouver its who you know no t what you know. If you haven’t done bartending school you’d better have connections and experience.

Here’s a tip:  make sure you know WHO is running the hiring before you drop off your resume.  Do some research. Call ahead. Ask the hostess. Its their job to give out this info and they won’t know your trying to replace them when you call. Get the managers name and talk to them directly when you apply.  First impressions are key in this industry and you need to think about what kind of impression you WANT to make.
