I am seriously surprised at this whole bartending thing I enrolled paid that money that I didn't have and I thought I was going to be literally placed in a job.

How naive was I? I should have known that it wasn't going to be that easy, but I can't let the whole bartending plan go because I already spent all my money of the course.

Does anyone know anything I can possibly do in getting a job, I even paid for this 45.00 dollar site barcareers. I just sent in there enterance package yesterday so I will soon see what they can do for me. When my teacher said that they don't hire people with no experience I thought maybe someone will hire.

I really don't know where to start besides going out place to place putting in apps.
which I will start monday, when I get some gas money for this gas price epidemic. Lol Does anyone have any tips for the Bar Bust, oh and
I'm not bitching I'm just ready to do what slaving I have to do to finally emerge as a bartender.

i think you're over reacting a little....just hang in there and keep applying.
But don't expect to get the bar job of your dreams, cuz it won't happen, unless you're extremely talented or you got the right connections.
Be prepared to start as a server even for a little while, or as a barback. Work your way up.
Hope that helps, goodluck

If it is experience you need, then a good place is barbacking. Go to a club and see if they need a barback. You will gain alot of experience watching bartends and then you can become one.

Or you can go to a hotel or resturant and bartend where it is a little slower. Chain restaurants are good places to learn because they have training programs.

No matter what you do, don't get down on yourself. If you want it, then do it.

I recommend putting some fake catering company name on your resume with someone your close to as the owner. Put that persons cell # down and bullshit as much as possible. The more experience you have the easier it will be to get a job. Dont call places. Just go into bars and apply. Usually a spot that needs a bartender needs one ASAP. Good Luck and dont give up

That is so true. Don't ever wait until there is something in the paper or online. By then it is probably too late. you must be active in this industry. Also, don't ever discount the hole in the walls, they can be some of the best places to work.
