At the Summit: How to Start a Career in Craft Beer

Have you ever wondered how to “get in” with a craft brewery? Whether you are looking for a taproom position, a brewing position or a management position, everything starts with a resume and a cover letter. Join the hiring managers from Mikkeller San Diego and Russian River Brewing Company to learn tips and tricks for getting your resume through the screening process and kickstarting your career in craft beer.

Common questions covered in this session will include what to list in your experience, what education hiring managers are looking for when hiring different positions at the brewery from bar staff up to executive managers, whether passion for beer trumps experience, how detailed to get with your love for the specific brewery you are pursuing, how to write a cover letter in the tone/style of the brewery you want to work at and more! The hiring managers will be showing real examples of resumes and cover letters they receive on a daily basis that caught their attention or lacked specific information they look for when hiring for new positions.

Take advantage of the fantastic opportunity to meet the hiring managers from growing breweries across California. This is your chance to shake the hand of a hiring manager you might be sending a resume to in the near future!

This educational session will be help on Saturday, September 10 at 9am in the Sacramento Convention Center. For a Saturday Education Pass, purchase your ticket online today here.
