If you have serious dreams of launching a beauty career, then attending a beauty college is a must. However, there are a number of things that you should know before choosing a cosmetology school. First, decide what’s important and what a beauty school should offer you. These things will be benefits like accredited programs and a curriculum that addresses today’s beauty trends. Find out if the school is accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences (NACCAS). Accreditation means a school has met or surpassed industry standards.
Ask a school representative to schedule a visit. A tour of the school’s campus and its facilities can speak volumes about its ability to prepare students for a successful career. The best schools will offer salon services. This allows students to learn, practice and develop their confidence and skills in the helpful presence of talented instructors. There’s a possibility that your salon patrons will become real customers after graduating and launching your career.
The best beauty schools will also offer job placement services. Marinello’s Career Services department does an excellent job of preparing students for employment by offering resume critiques, help in developing a professional portfolio, assistance in learning valuable customer service skills, and mock interviews that can help prepare graduates for the real thing. A good Career Services department should also offer strong job-placement services as well. Your education is important. And Marinello understands that launching your career is equally important.
The best beauty schools will be up front about your program’s full cost and financial aid programs that are available to those who qualify. How are textbooks paid for? Does your program include a cosmetology student kit? Have the school’s tuition processes been fully explained? Will the school allow you to meet with some of the students and instructors? Perhaps one of the most important signs that a school will be a good fit is the number of students who graduate and go on to become beauty industry professionals. This is a sure sign that students are getting the best education possible and the industry values their skills.
