Resume Templates: Bartender Resume


As a bartender, you’re probably pretty good at quickly deciding whose stories you want to hear more of and whose you’d rather avoid. In that sense, you’re not that different from the bar manager or owner scanning resumes to decide which applicants he or she wants invite in for an interview.

Since bartending is a job that involves a lot of personal interaction with a variety of people, it’s a good idea to use your resume summary to demonstrate your communication skills and bit of your personality. Finally, make sure that you’ve studied the job description so that you can tailor your resume to your target watering hole. You wouldn’t want to dub yourself a mixologist if you’re applying to fill pint glasses at dive bar that prides itself on its lack of pretension.

Check out our bartender resume sample before you start writing, and get ready to raise a glass to celebrate your new job.
