  • Tips on How to Ace Your Salon Interview

    You’re going to get a lot of fantastic tips from the Career Services department at Marinello.  There, you’ll have access to seasoned professionals who can share valuable knowledge and experiences. Here are a few pieces of advice on how to craft your portfolio, how to conduct yourself during your interview, what to bring and tips on what to wear.


    Here’s what you should bring to your interview:


    • Research and Knowledge – Research the salon where you hope to get hired. Learn about the salon’s history, their customers, pricing, services and most importantly why you think you’ll be a good fit.
    • An Up-to-Date Resume – Make sure your resume is typed and organized neatly. Career Services can help you write a strong cover letter and resume.
    • An Up-to-Date Portfolio – A portfolio is a perfect way to showcase your skills and show how organized you can be. Career Services can help you get organized and may have special suggestions in addition to the following: photos that include acrylic pink and whites, photos of nail art, toes, and photos of models whose hair you’ve styled.
    • A Copy of Your Certificates – A copy, that you can leave, of your license or other accreditation or certificates you’ve earned. Certificates may include manufacturer courses of first-aid classes.

    What You Should Wear


    Wear an outfit that makes you look neat and professional. Polish your shoes and make sure you clothes are clean and spotless. Wear minimal jewelry. Avoid any clothes that will cause a sloppy first-impression. This includes wearing clothes like jeans, short skirts (if female), or low-cut blouses. Guys: Avoid wearing wrist wraps or stamps. If you have a need to constantly pull up your pants during a salon tour, you’re wearing the wrong pants or you’re in need of a belt. If your boxers are showing, you may be shown the door. Shut off your cell phone ten minutes before your interview.


    It’s okay to dress on the trendy side. Employers just want to make sure that you’ll make a positive impression on customers. If you’re in doubt, arrive at your interview with a conservative look.


    Practice Makes Perfect


    Practicing bad habits won’t make you perfect. It’ll just make you good at being “bad”. Career Services can help you develop good job-search tactics. You’ll be able to make a positive impact when it comes time for the real thing. Mock interviews can provide an excellent opportunity to work through any nervous jitters. Mock interviews can also provide support to help you perfect your non-verbal clues, like your handshake, eye contact and posture. Instructors, family members and friends can also help you prepare for your interview.

  • Common Interview Questions to Prepare For

    One of the many good things about attending Marinello Schools of Beauty is the support you can expect to receive from our Career Services Department. Your education is career-focused, and upon graduation, you’ll be prepared to seek entry-level employment in the beauty industry.


    Would you like to strengthen your interviewing skills? Does your resume or cover letter need to be improved? Do you need additional help to research and follow up on job leads?  Career Services offers support through graduation and beyond.


    Let’s get started!  Here are a few questions you may be asked at your job interview.


    1. Can you tell me a little about yourself?  Most interviewers will ask this question to gather information and observe your response and poise. Instead of just talking about yourself, reference personal work experiences that you’re proud of or that stand out. Try to remain calm.


    2. What sets you apart from other applicants applying for this position? An interviewer wants to know if you’re ready to handle the responsibilities of your new position. This could be a good chance to highlight your qualities and training if this is your first real job interview. Explain ways that you can bring value to the position.


    3. Where do you hope to be in five years?  Don’t make the mistake of saying you’d like to own the business or have your interviewer’s job. Instead, you can talk about the things that motivate you and what you hope to accomplish in your new role.


    4. Do you have any additional questions? Don’t say “no”. It’s easy to feel pressure in an interview and want it to be over as soon as possible. This could be a good time to remove any doubts the interviewer might still have. Restate why you feel you would be the best choice for the position.


    Remember, your Career Services team has the answers to your questions. In addition to an excellent education, Marinello is dedicated to helping you be your best when it comes time for your job interview. Our goal is to help you find the career of your dreams.
