How to get a job as a bartender in an elite club
Work as a bartender in our country is not very popular, but it has advantages that most professions cannot boast of. What are the advantages? Let’s try to list them.
1. You can settle in as a bartender from the age of 18 without education. Of course, with absolutely no experience, most often they are hired by “pubs”, summer cafes and similar simple establishments, but there is nothing wrong with that – they can be considered as a stepping stone in a career.
2. The work schedule is shiftable, 3/3 or 2/2, as well as a day in two. There is enough time left for personal affairs.
3. Salaries are not too high, but higher than the average supply on the labor market. For example, working as a bartender in Novosibirsk will bring you an average of 18,000 thousand per month for 15 shifts, the duration of which is 12-15 hours.
4. Often, salary payments occur after each shift, which allows you to always be with the money and not be afraid for the final amount.
How to become an elite club bartender
However, working in small cafes cannot be the ultimate dream, and almost everyone will soon want to go up the career ladder. It is difficult to do this within the walls of a native cafe, and therefore restaurants and elite clubs become the next goal. There are people who want to get there from scratch. How difficult is it to get a job in an elite club, with or without experience?
In order not to be unfounded, we’ll go to classified sites such as Roswork and others. As you can see, the vacancies in expensive clubs are average, not a lot and not a little.
Among the requirements:
attractive and neat appearance;
higher education (rarely).
So, the first thing you can do only yourself is to work on your appearance. The requirements for guys in this regard are softer, and for their “beauty”, clean and neat clothes and a confident appearance are enough. It’s more difficult for girls, but even if you consider yourself ugly, cosmetics today can do anything. Beautiful and discreet makeup, stylish clothes, albeit inexpensive, neat nails and clean, well-groomed hair – and you have already made an effect on the employer.
In a conversation, your self-confidence will be a significant plus for the resume, even if it does not contain a word about the experience. If you are asked if you are sure that you can do it, then the employer should not see a drop of a hitch. Purposeful people who can convince others that they can do anything get a job, even if they have no idea about it.
One “but”: after receiving it, do not relax – you promised to cope with everything. Dismissing a lazy bartender is a matter of minutes …
Three ways to become an elite club bartender
There are three main approaches to getting such a job. The first is good enough, but too long: to work in smaller establishments, gain experience, and graduate along the way some bartenders courses. In the future you will be taken with a bang, but this will happen in a couple of years.
The second is just to come for an interview and admit that you know almost nothing. With a smile, assure that you really want to work here and learn everything. Employers often make contact with brave people. After hiring, you need to learn at a triple rate.
The third is not very good, but some use it successfully. He is in the distortion of information during the interview. You exaggerate your experience and your knowledge. True, you can get burned out on the first day … You will also have to gain knowledge at a frantic pace, but no one will help here.
Whatever method you choose, you need to understand that you have to develop here, and nobody will give you a sit back.
