What do I need to be an Bartender?!
Question: What do I need to be an Bartender!?
When I go off to college I want to bartend because I have heard it is a great way to make money!. The problem is I don't know where to start! I might take a course but I have heard people say it is a waste of time and money, is that true!? Shouldn't I have some experience!? Or do employers hirer beginner bartenders who don't have experience!? Basically I would like to know some info that will help me get into bar tending!. Answers from actual bartenders would be great! If you are a bartender ( a good one ), share how you got to where you are today!
Many states, here in America require you to have, a food handlers permit and some require a certificate in bartending!. Go to a good wine and beer bar in your area and see what they require and apply for a job!. Get to know the place and the customers!. It would be worth it!. Foodhandlers permits only take a day of instruction and are given all over all the time!. Contact your health department!. Good luck!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
