Top Job Boards for Nightclubs
Working at a nightclub is a fun job, but when you are out of work the search can be frustrating. Many job boards are flooded with corporate jobs, yet they lack club/lounge industry resources. I remember searching online for hours and finally having to pick up a phonebook (YES a Phonebook!), looking up all the local nightclubs and applying to their individual websites! It was not at all fun.
Luckily now there are some newer resources, but they take some digging. So I've decided to put together a nice little list to make life easier. Hope you enjoy, good luck on your job search, and if you get frustrated, just remember, 2oz Vodka mixed with 1/2 lime juice over ice = the cure for everything! :)
