How to Get the Job of Your Dreams

Although the job market has been fairly treacherous for most industries, cosmetology is still a thriving field with many jobs available. It is certainly possible to get a job by simply pounding the pavement and filling out applications, but chairs in the country’s most prestigious salons always go to those who know how to market themselves well. Here are just a few things to do to improve your potential for employability:

  1. Refine your resumé. Set yourself apart from the crowd by using lots of eye-catching action verbs in your resumé. Your resumé should always been clean, professional, and easy-to-read. Avoid extravagant fonts and don’t be afraid to talk yourself up.
  2. Design a personal professional website. Many online services allow you to use a template to quickly and easily create a personal website to show yourself off to salons. Networking on LinkedIn and Salon Galaxy will also go a long ways to make yourself known to potential employers.
  3. Attend industry conferences. Whether you like it or not, it’s often not what you know but who you know that counts. Never miss a chance to meet other beauticians – every connection you make brings you one step closer to the salon of your dreams!

The first important step in your journey to the job you’ve always wanted, however, is to attend the right school of hair design. Avalon is the west’s premier beauty school – come visit us to learn more!
