We strongly encourage all American Bartending School graduates to work with our placement staff upon graduation. Working with our staff will allow graduates to take advantage of the relationships we have developed with Tampa-St. Pete area bars and restaurant employers for over 40 years.
In addition, on a daily basis we identify new bars and restaurants and new jobs that come up in our area. Graduating our bartending school in Tampa will allow you to benefit from this. No school should ever be guaranteeing a job to graduates after graduation or coming close to implying the possibility of such a guarantee. One major reason for this is that a good job search and “presentation to employers” really depends on the graduate as a candidate — not the school.
What American Bartending School can do is assist our graduates with our placement expertise and employer connections.
Graduates are responsible for standing out from the crowd and giving reasons for employers to offer them jobs, but a diploma from American Bartending School will definitely help. At ABS, we work with each graduate on this “presentation” so that they can convince potential employers that they are the right choice to make for their business. We don’t just offer you the skills to become a bartender; we help to ensure that you become one upon graduation.
The hiring process includes presenting many important factors about your skill set to your potential employer. Some of the factors that are taken into consideration by bar and restaurant owners are listed below. We help our graduates work on all of these points so they can secure their ideal jobs:
Again, we strongly encourage all graduates to proactively work with ABS placement staff so that the placement assistance we offer can fully benefit them. Job Placement Assistance at ABS is always free for all our graduates.
