Whether a recent graduate of Bartending School or a veteran with years of experience in the industry, working private events and parties is an excellent option to create new opportunities and generate additional cash flow. Working private functions allows one, the freedom to travel and work with a rotation of colorful, interesting individuals.

While many bartenders flourish while working in clubs, bars, and restaurants, others tend to prefer the flexibility of working events such as weddings, corporate events, grand openings and other various occasions. However, even those with years of experience have questions concerning where to start. While where to begin may be overwhelming, there are several solutions.

The first question many bartenders tend to ask is: “Where do I look first?” There are several answers to this particular question. For starters, many local catering companies hire bartenders for parties, and other special events. Searching the yellow pages, and calling various companies can prove highly effective.

Working through a catering company has both advantages as disadvantages. Working through a catering company can put a bartender in contact with potential employers. This way the bartender has a company finding bartending jobs for them. Even though working through a catering company can result in additional bartending experience, they often pay the bartender much less than what was paid to the caterer. Hence the reason that many bartenders may opt out of working through a catering company.

This leads to the next concern aspiring freelance bartenders may have: “How do I promote myself?” This question also merits several answers. Several bartenders look to Craigslist to advertise their expertise. Social networking forums such as facebook, twitter, stumbleupon, and linkedin are invaluable resources for bartenders looking to find bartending jobs and privately funded events and parties. Business cards are also crucial forms of self-promotion. The website vistaprint offers professional business cards and other promotional tools at great prices.

Perhaps the best tool for bartenders looking to find bartending jobs at private parties and events is www.bartendmyparty.com . This site is an excellent tool for bartenders of varying experience to post profiles advertising their expertise. This particular site also caters specifically to bartenders looking to get hired for private events. For those looking to hire a bartender , bartendmyparty.com showcases a large talent pool of bartenders and assists them in finding the right person to work their event.

Hopefully the aforementioned suggestions will greatly help those looking to bartend private parties.
