Cosmetology School Graduate 1: All About Business is a perfect holiday gift for the soon-to-be or recent cosmetology graduate. There are plenty of “what to do once you graduate college” books, but this one is tailored to the cosmetology graduate.
Interviews and portfolios: What types of questions will be asked in an interview? What about those tattoos and piercings? In a creative career like this one, do you need to cover them up in an interview? Take out the studs? And how do you build a picture portfolio that helps you not only in the interview process but also in landing clients?
Contracts and pay: What is a non-compete contract? (Not understanding the language of a salon contract can tie you to a salon for longer than you’d like or even prevent you from opening up your own someday.) Should you go for a commission-based or salary pay structure?
Trends: What about booth rental—the industry’s hot, new coworking idea that is gaining popularity? Is it right for you?
Building a successful career: Why do you need to know how to sell products to be successful, and how do you sell to male clients (who really are their own breed)? Did you know that keeping a file of happy customer correspondence could help you when you ask for a raise later? Do you know how to ask for a raise?
All of these topics and more are answered in a book that contains both industry-specific and general new-grad information in an easy-to-read format with checklists and tips from salon professionals at the end of each chapter. This book will help cosmetology grads navigate the transition from school to the work world with confidence.
