You don't have to worry though, because we have outlined for you what you should avoid at all costs when it comes to looking for a new bartender job in NYC. Take our advice, and you will minimize needless errors and as a result, increase your chances of getting the best bartender job on the market!

The Do's and Don'ts of Finding a Bartender Job in NYC

To do or not to do, that is no longer the question. Follow our tips here and you will be on your way to landing a bartender job that will be the envy of your professional peers.
  • #1 Do not search only through friends
    Getting insider job information from former co-workers and friends and family is a good tool to use, but it shouldn't be the only source you use. You don't want to have all of your job-searching eggs in one basket. Spread them out, and you increase your odds of getting hired.

    This means looking on job search boards online, looking at job publications, searching on company websites for career listings, and applying through professional staffing agencies.
  • #2 Be active in the search
    Don't just wait for the jobs to come to you, get out there and pound the pavement and look for as many options as possible. Be actively checking your inbox on different job search sites. Update your resume, and reword your cover letters. Follow up on emails from prospective employers. The more active you are, the more jobs you will potentially make available to you.
  • #3 Do not cancel or reschedule an interview
    Emergencies can happen, but if you do not have a good reason for rescheduling an interview, it's best to not do it at all. There are plenty of applicants all vying for the same position, and you are going to give them your job opportunity by canceling.

    By forfeiting the interview that the employer made room in their own busy schedule to accommodate, you are giving a message to them that you are not really all that interested in the position. This is not the first impression you want to make to a potential new employer.
