With the loss of both my bartending/bar management jobs due to the pandemic, I just wrote my first resume (curriculum vitae or CV for my international and academic friends) in nearly fifteen years. To say I was a little rusty at putting together a resume would be putting it mildly. I haven’t had a need for a new resume in a long time – I was at my last job for twelve years, and before that I was fairly well-known in a small town, so I didn’t really need one.
I know a lot of people were helped by getting to peek at my resume back in the early 2000s, so much so that I was inspired to write a step-by step post on how to write a resume for bartenders. It has since been visited by well over a hundred thousand people, which brings me great joy to be of service.
So I figured while I was at it, I should extend some help again and not only provide you with a PDF of my 2021 resume/curriculum vitae that you can use, I also decided to go back and refresh that old blog post on how to write a bartending resume with some more modern advice. There, you can grab a Google Docs template to make life a little easier (see the bottom of that post for the template)
Link to my most current resume in PDF format is here. Hope to see you all soon for a drink.
(By the way, this layout was loosely based on a template from one of those free sites, and I’ve lost the link. But big thanks to the person who shared their original work with all of us.)
