Looking for Work in Hospitality

Hi! I’m new to Philly and working as a bartender. I have a pretty impressive pedigree behind the bar, been bartending for almost 20 years- most of it in NYC. I was diagnosed about 10 years ago but my symptoms were manageable until recently. I can’t keep at it much longer: the physicality of carrying ice buckets and cases of beer, long shifts on my feet, and issues with coordination and forgetting cocktail recipes. I’d like to move into a management position with benefits (and the opportunity to sit down occasionally lol). I’m having trouble since I’ve only been in Philly a few months. Can anybody help?

  1. Hi , thank you for reaching out! I'm so sorry we're just responding to your question. How's life in Philly and the job hunt going? If you're still looking, I thought you might want to check out the MSAA, if you haven't already. They are located in Cherry Hill, very close to Philadelphia, and may have some helpful resources in the area that they can share with you. You can contact them here: I hope this helps. Please keep us posted on how you're doing! Best, Shelby, Team Member
