Our beauty schools want to teach you how to become an amazing cosmetologist, but we want to do more than just help our students become awesome stylists. We want to help you take what you learn and use it in the real world. We want you to land a great job! That’s why we host several career fairs throughout the year at our two schools, giving students the opportunity to meet with salon owners and managers and begin networking. We prep our students for graduation, not just by honing their cosmetology skills, but by helping them get a foot into the career door.
At our Spring 2015 Career Fair at VICÍ Aveda Institute, we opened our doors to 44 salons. That’s 44 businesses that are looking for VICÍ students! Our students spent the morning talking to tons of different salons, gaining contacts, and even grabbing the occasional free bagel or candy bar. Our career fairs are an amazing way for our students to prepare for their life after graduation. We had amazing salons attend our career fair – here are just a few examples of the companies that joined us:
Urban Trends SalonSpa
Ruffolo’s Hair Studio
Fantastic Sam’s Hair Salons
Enve Salon and Day Spa
Haven Salon + Day Spa
Art and Science Salon
Pink Lemonade Salon & Day Spa
GAIA Micro Spa
We also had the privilege of hosting guest speakers from M Magazine. We were joined by Amy Siewert – Editor in Chief at M Magazine, Jen Hunholz – Editor at M Magazine and Katy Rowe – Photographer for M Magazine and Co-owner of Artist Group Photography. They led our students through the process of creating a fashion editorial for a magazine. Our students learned how much work and time goes into each fashion spread, as well as hearing what the editorial staff looks for when booking hair and makeup stylists.
If you’re looking for a school that will do more than just sharpen your skills, VICÍ Aveda Institute is the school for you. Keep your eyes peeled for a post about our career fair at Bayshore, as well – another amazing school to grow as an artist. We want you to succeed beyond graduation, and our career fairs are just one of the many ways we help our students shine. For more info on enrollment, call (414) 425-1700.
