Not in high finance so the work hours are more laid back and left my old job a little over a week ago after getting an offer in NYC. It seems like back in my college days, bartender was the job to get but even now when I have been out of college, a handful of guys seem to be able to do that on top of their main job and not only make good money doing it but enjoy some social success from it too.
No point to do that if you are in IB since the pay is more than satisfactory but I could see this being a good added benefit for more of the average job that doesn't pay nearly as much, not just financially but also getting those interactions in that kind of a setting.
I wanted to know if anyone who has bartended before whether at a brewery, nightclub or any place has some experiences to share. Be willing to listen to how to try and do this myself while I am young and have the energy to handle a second weekend job.
From what I have found at the couple bars I have talked to about doing this with, they don't seem to hire you even part-time unless you were already bartending before and then found some more white collar work.
