US Hospitality Group can place its certified bartenders anywhere from a cocktail lounge to a cruise ship. They work with a broad network of employers, and match their graduates with open bartending slots though career placement assistance that is available to graduates for their lifetime. The only prerequisite is their bartending course, which covers topics from exotic drink recipes to garnishes and proper customer-service practices, such as never serving a drink in a dog bowl, not even a long-stemmed one.
