Employment for bartenders is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Bartending jobs are readily available because of the high turnover in this field. Many people work as bartenders only for a short time as they pursue other careers, or while they are finishing school. Others view a bartending position as the first step on a career ladder that leads them to a career in restaurant or bar management. The best opportunities will be available to those who have completed bartending school and who have prior industry experience and excellent customer-service skills.
