Because here’s the way it works in the real world with bartending jobs…most bars, especially the good ones, have people that literally come in and apply EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. On top of that, bar owners and managers are so busy running their business that they don’t have time to keep in contact with an outside “school” to make sure they are thoroughly stocked with back-up bartenders to call upon at a moments notice.
