Why is the Bartending Externship a Critical Component of Our Bartending Training?
When someone is entering a technical field, whether it is Bartending, truck driving, cosmetology, or even the medical profession, that school’s training includes an Externship (On the Job Training) as part of their training. That is why we, as the owners of The Premium Institute of Bartending, have included the Externship requirement as part of our Bartending Program Curriculum. Over the years, our Externship Program has allowed us to establish strong relationships with numerous local bars and restaurants. It is a win/win situation. The Bar and Restaurant owners get a preview of their potential Bartender and our students get real Bartending experience.
Here’s how the Bartending Externship Works:
On the first day of class, the Externship Coordinator meets with every student to schedule the time and location of their Externship. We do our best to match you with an environment that you may want to work in. In fact, many of our students get hired at their Externship site. The externship is a minimum of two hours. Many students get hired during their externship.
At your Externship, you will get to make real drinks for actual customers. You will get to interact with the customers, and observe a real point of sale system in use. You will understand how a bar tab is managed and how a service bar is ran. No matter how real our school simulates a real Bar, it is no substitute for the real thing.
You will work under the guidance of a Lead Bartender or Bar Manager. This allows you to ask questions and observe a real bar in action.
The Externship also allows US to add some Bartending experience to your new resume that WE create for you.
The Externship allows you to graduate with more than just the ABC’s of Bartending.
