Interviewing with a salon owner can be nerve racking as a student. An important thing to remember is owners want someone teachable. They have been in the industry for a long time and want to build on your foundational skills. Here are Interview tips from Indeed on how to make a great first impression.
Some salon owners still require resumes for interviewing. Most students say they have a hard time with filling out a resume due to lack of experience. As part of our program at International Institute of Cosmetology, resume writing is part of the program. Laura Taylor, Director of Admissions provides resume writing workshop to facilitate resume completion for students. Indeed gives some tips on how to write a resume if you have no experience. https://www.indeed.com/career-advice/resumes-cover-letters/writing-a-resume-with-no-experience.
