Part time jobs in Northern Virginia

Our bartending school provides endless opportunities for part-time work for those looking to augment their income. Our school has been a huge source for part-time jobs for grads for years, in fact decades. Whether someone is working, in college or grad school, retired, or simply looking to earn some extra income we have aided thousands of graduates in landing additional part-time work and extra income.

Take Kendra and Brent for instance.

Kendra is a consultant with a full time job.  She wanted extra income.  She wanted flexible work, and as she told us she didn’t want a boring low paying retail job.  She took our course.  We have now given Kendra two gigs covering three days.  They came directly off our leads.   One was at a concert at National Stadium.  The above picture was taken in the middle of Clarendon during the annual two day Arts Festival thrown by the Clarendon Alliance.

Between hourly pay and tips Brenda has already paid for the classes.

Part time jobs for College Students

Brent is  a 21 year old student at George Mason University.  He also wanted flexible part time opportunities.  The Clarendon Alliance event was his first bartending gig–a two day event of about 4-6 hours each day.  It occurred during the first few weeks after he graduated.   Brent has opportunities to work parties, events, weddings, or might end up getting some shifts at many of the nearby bars in close proximity to George Mason that have hired our grads.

Matt, below, took our program during college break, used our suggestions and smarts from the placement office and landed a first job in Blacksburg before being promoted to this high profile position at the Continental Divide Bar for visitors to Virginia Tech and Blacksburg.

Part time jobs for the employed

Many of our students have a full time job but are looking for extra income.  It could be for a myriad of reasons.   Brenda took our course for just that reason.  Years before Brenda had worked in the hospitality industry and in a variety of restaurants.  Now she is an adult, a mother, and someone eager to earn extra income in a part time job that is better paying and more fun than retail or for a  call center.   She took our course.

After finishing the 40 hour program and going through our placement assistance session and accessing our leads Brenda still hadn’t landed a bartending gig.

That didn’t phase us.  We want to see grads earn back the cost of the program and make that extra income.   We went back over opportunities with Brenda and redirected her.

She is now applying her recently acquired bartending skills with long developed skills from years of working at restaurants.  She loves it.  It augments her regular income and is infinitely better than sitting in an office or working a low paying retail job.

Part Time Jobs in DC and Maryland

Our placement office works with opportunities throughout the region.   In January up to 50 grads worked either one or two nights for the Inauguration parties.   This was an awesome event.  Some of our grads called it the most memorable day of work they ever had.  They were paid an hourly salary and tips.   And some earned “bank”.  Tremendous money.   Here are a few of their pictures.

Not only did these and so many other grads get to bartend at this exciting event, earn great money, but before the events started they got to experience a private concert as many of the stars practiced before the evenings’ grand ball.

Our school has been helping grads earn part time income for decades. If you are looking for part time jobs and income give us a call: (703) 841 9700
