Tips

At Maryland Bartending Academy, our Job Placement Assistance service is one of the best in the business. We are more than just a school; we are a local institution that has excellent relationships with bars, restaurants, nightclubs, hotels, and other service operations across the state of Maryland.

Since 1980, we have operated as a free referral service to the bartending industry. Whenever an employer needs to hire a bartender, all they need to do is give us a call, describe what type of individual they're looking for, and we immediately post it to our job bank. Now, just imagine how the list of employers who uses our free service has grown after all those years. We also work with many staffing agencies that will call on us to fill extremely large events. It's not uncommon for them to request hundreds of our bartenders at the same time to fill their positions.

We have placed thousands of our students into some of the busiest bars here in Maryland, Washington DC, and across the country. So where do you think you might like to work after completing our bartending program? You can find our students tending bar everywhere from Night Clubs, Restaurants, Casinos, Ski Resorts, Luxury Hotels, Sports Bars, Tropical Resorts, Cruise Ships, or just around the corner in a quaint Neighborhood Bar. The fact is, where you begin your bartending career will be limited only by your imagination. We will give you the skills and confidence necessary to start your bartending career right away. Because 8 out of every 10 new students who enroll with us, are referrals, we will work hard for you to make sure you become a successful bartender. Once your friends start seeing how much money you're making as a bartender, they're going to ask you "How did you get started in bartending?" and your answer will be "Maryland Bartending Academy in Glen Burnie, of course"!

Local Job Placement Assistance

Bartending

Did you know? Maryland is one of the top states to pursue your career as a certified bartender due to the approval of casinos with additional slot machines and table gaming as well as other countless opportunities in the food and beverage industry. In fact, we are having difficulties keeping up with the demand for our bartenders. Maryland is home to Baltimore's Inner Harbor as well as trendy communities such as Federal Hill, Fells Point and Canton. In addition Maryland is home to historic downtown Annapolis and Southern Maryland's restaurant row. We even have our own very popular Eastern Shore resort town known as Ocean City, MD. We are also filling bartending positions in the District of Columbia and its surrounding areas.

Just before you graduate, each student will learn "How to obtain a bartending position" this valuable information was developed so graduates will understand our rules and suggestions, taking the guesswork out on how you should apply for a bartending job. Also, our graduates will be given a username and password to gain access 24/7 to our online job bank. Remember, most of our full or part time bartending jobs are unadvertised and available only to our graduates.

One of our placement coordinators will be just a phone call away from the hottest jobs in your area. You will speak directly to placement coordinators who will help match you with a job that fits your needs and goals. Lifetime job placement assistance for all MBA graduates will remain eligible by adhering to our job placement assistance policies.

Nationwide Job Placement Assistance

When you are around for more than three decades, you become well known across the country. Maryland Bartending Academy can help place you in jobs as close as Pennsylvania and as far away as California!

We are the "exclusive" training facility for the entire Maryland, Washington DC and Northern Virginia area by the Professional Bartending Schools of America, adding prestige to our name.

PBSA Map

Every Maryland Bartending Academy's graduate is eligible to use the job placement assistance service and take refresher classes at all PBSA schools, nationwide. www.pbsa.com. If you ever relocate, you can be sure to find a bartending job in your new hometown!

We partner with the Professional Bartending Schools of America, which currently has 36 member schools and has contracted with over 50 additional campuses.

PBSA is the nation's largest group of independently owned bartending schools. We have signed, written contracts for placement services at these additional campuses, and monitor them for their placement results. We feel we have the best schools for placement in the industry.

Any of our graduates may call the academy if they are considering relocating, and we will verify we have an affiliate school in their new city. Once the graduate has relocated to the new city, he or she can call the Academy and we will reach out to a partner school in that city and schedule an introduction with the job placement coordinator on your behalf.

Our graduate then reports to the new campus and shows his or her Maryland Bartending Academy diploma, and all of the new city's job openings are available to them at no charge. The new school will treat our graduate like one of their own and the job placement services can be used on a continual basis.

Our nationwide job placement program is a great way to see the country while earning a good living.

Our admission office is open Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to 6 pm. Call us at 410-787-0020 or email.
