The careers in the Beauty Industry are endless, and at Esthetic Institute, we prepare our students for a variety of careers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics:
” Employment of skincare specialists is projected to grow 40 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. The desire among women and a growing number of men to reduce the effects of aging will result in rapid employment growth. Good job opportunities are expected.”
” Employment of manicurists and pedicurists is projected to grow 16 percent from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average for all occupations. New nail services being offered, such as minisessions and mobile manicures and pedicures, will drive employment growth. High turnover and a growing number of nail salons will result in very good job opportunities.”
” Employment of massage therapists is projected to grow 23 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. Continued growth in the demand for massage services will lead to new openings for massage therapists.”
While the school cannot guarantee employment for graduates, assistance in finding suitable employment is provided by posting area job openings on our career opportunities bulletin board for students to review. Over the years Esthetic Institute has established a great relationship with local and national employers, who come to us for their hiring needs. They are invited to visit with the students throughout the year, so they can get to know the students, talks to them about the employment needs and start the hiring process even before the students have graduated.
The Esthetic Institute also organizes Career Expo Job Fairs per year, inviting over 100 local Spas and Salons to the event.
Students also receive training in professionalism and job search skills including how to write a resume, complete an employment application and prepare for an effective interview. The curriculum places a great deal of emphasis on how to obtain and retain employment after graduation through real life guest speakers and employer visits. Graduates are encouraged to maintain contact with the school and follow-up with the school on current employment or employment needs. In addition, the school maintains a network of relationships with professionals and employers who provide mentoring to students while they are in school. Job referrals are made known to interested graduates as available.
