Now that you have finished with school, or if you are still contemplating a career change, you may be wondering how much money bartenders actually make. Iâ€™m sure you have heard about people making $50,000- over $100,000 a year. It is possible to make this much money; however there are things that you need to do to ensure that you will make a great living bartending.
First be sure that you received training at a reputable Bartending School. Your odds of getting hired at an upscale bar are going to be far more likely if they are impressed with your training. However, donâ€™t expect that they first job you get is going to be at the nicest place in town. Bartenders work their entire lives to get hired at these establishments because this is where you are going to earn the most money. You need to get a little experience under your belt first.
Also your location has a lot to do with how much money you are going to make. Bartenders in Las Vegas are more likely going to make more money than bartenders in Newport, Oregon. Of course the cost of living in more in Las Vegas, but you will more than make up for it with the money you make.
When you are first out of Bartending School, the best thing you can do is get a little experience. You can move on after a short period of time.
