You have made up your mind. You want to pursue a career in bartending. But where do you start? How do you get a bartending job in Maryland or Washington DC? Well, there are two general trains of thought:

  1. Get a job as a barback and work your way up through the ranks. However, as we explained a few weeks back in our blog “A Career in Bartending: Should I get a job as a Barback first?,” Getting a job as a barback may hamper your quest for a career in bartending.
  2. Attend bartending school. The only way to learn about being a bartender is to actually get behind the bar. And the only way to get behind the bar without having a bartending job is to attend bartending school.
