Jobs » health & beauty
Looking good and feeling good is probably the most rewarding feeling of all. But maybe it would be a little bit nicer if you help other people achieve this state of living, right? You can do so by finding an employment in the world of health and beauty. By doing so you will be able to help people feel better inside and out, and the compensation would merely serve as a bonus.
To successfully land a job in health and beauty industry, you are required to have a bagful of trainings and experiences. This is because you are dealing with among the most delicate situations. You would not be able to hold a syringe, a scalpel or even enter the hospital as an employer if you have not got the required education, certifications and trainings. Remember that you are directly dealing with the human body here so you must at least obtain a license to practice. And your main goal is to help people feel good inside and out, thus there must not be room for any error.
When you go and apply for a health or beauty job, there are a few things you need to bring with you. An impressive cover letter is a must to create a lasting impression even at the start of the application process. Along with your cover letter should be your portfolio with your updated resume. The more certificates of trainings you have, the better your chances are in landing a job. In addition, a recommendation letter from someone who is of significant position (say, your college dean if you are a fresh graduate). If you have not brought any, yoy may just want to have indicated some key people for character reference.
Dress professionally and look clean and tidy when submitting your portfolio. There is no room for dirt in the world of health and beauty so keep physical cleanliness a top priority. Smile a lot and be courteous. Perhaps these tips would apply to almost all job application situations.
It is actually easy to catch the attention of an employer especially when you are seeking for a position in the beauty industry. If you are an aspiring makeup artist, you can make a first impression by showing up with a beautifully done (but not overdone) make up. This would make you a walking proof of your ability. The same is also true when you are applying as a hairstylist. Do your hair properly and let your prospect employer see that you are indeed a hair expert. And you are doing this without even opening your mouth yet to talk.
Every second is considered important that is why you should make the best out of the time you are given. So it is vital to create a bang just as soon as you open the door and walk towards the interviewer’s desk.
Employers would have to go through a large number of applicants before finally being able to select the one that fits the bill. But things would become easier when you know how to target the potential employees you want. Your Jobs Wanted ad will serve as your arrow while an online ad posting site will be your bow.
If you want young professionals to be your future employees, your ad wording should be more fun, light-toned advertisement. Yuppies have certain lingo and this is something you may want to incorporate when posting an advertisement online. Legal immigrants, on the other hand, will more likely apply for the position you are offering when you are willing to assist them in learning English and health benefits as well. You can also target women by stating benefits such as career mobility, daycare assistance and flexible schedule.
There are actually a lot of options to choose from when it comes to advertising. You can paste posters around town, buy an advertisement page or section on the local paper or post on a online classified ad site. With all the choices mentioned, the most practical and most effective method will actually point to only one--online advertising.
Most of us use the internet more often than read the newspaper and go to the city to look for ads posted. By choosing online ad posting, you are actually targeting the greatest number of possible job applicants from different age group. There are two types of ad posting sites: paid posting and free posting. If you think you get better applicants when posting on paid ad sites, you are wrong. The truth is that not everyone would be willing to spend just to get a membership from a job hunting site. Thus it is unquestionably a better avenue to post on free ad sites since most if not all would be able to see your job opening. With its affordability, more potential applicants and back links, there is nothing to complain about.
