PR - How Many Jobs?

Postby sgstrait » Tue, 28 Jul 2015 8:45 pm

While I am aware that PR entitles us to enter any employment (except of course for regulated employment such as medicine, law, dentistry etc), but does it also allow us to hold more than one job at the same time? I don't really see why not, but I am curious to know if anyone has experience with this.

Not that I'm desperate or anything!!! Just curious.....

Cheers

Yes, a PR can legally hold more than 1 job at a time. As an example, a PR engineer can work in industry and teach part time. The restriction will come from your company rules which can prohibit outside work that gives the appearance of any conflict of interest or even prohibit outside jobs for no reason at all.

Cheers Bro, good to know. I have a professional day job in a senior role at an MNC, but sometimes feel like working behind a bar somewhere in the evening just for the fun of it... Or perhaps for the hell of it

Working behind a bar? You are trying to deprive a lowly paid local of a job ... ;) :mrgreen:

Just kidding ..

Have fun

And with the loud music in most pubs here, I believe chatting will be limited to - I finish at 3 AM, my place or your place ?

And then finding your drunk date has been retrieved by her BF/GF/another stranger who doesn't have to wait till 3 A.M.

BQ is so old fashion ....

Try in Tower ? ;) the BMDs are always recruiting.

Btw, if you join any bar, you are not gonna touch the tap or handle drinks for while, or maybe for a long while ... unless you know how the order system works and have past experience...

I am sure you know all that ...

Pick one pub you like. Start hanging out regularly. Befriend the staff or boss. After establishing the "regular guy" status, start offering voluntary work at the pub.

In theory it should be easy. The food and beveradge industry struggle to find and retain good staff. At least that's what I'm always hearing.

I don't really wish to work hard, or indeed serve people, just have a laugh. Therefore I should be well qualified for the role!

OK, so I am working for free behind a bar for a couple of nights a week just to learn the trade. Busy, but I am rather liking it. All bars are more or less the same. I find it's the genuine personal connection with customers that keeps them coming back, and they also become quite forgiving even when I serve them a pint of beer froth. Made a few mates already. Quite liking this.
