With resume and portfolio in hand, Edmonton MC College students got the chance to meet and network with salon/spa owners and managers at our Beauty Career Fair on June 10th. The event ran from 9am -3pm in the Artego Creative Lounge at the Edmonton Campus. Throughout the event, the room was constantly buzzing with excitement and chatter as 9 salons and spas did mini interviews, hair demos and handed out swag bags.
“It’s a great chance to meet with prospective employers and learn which salons and spas are a good fit for the students” said Edmonton MC College Director, Analia Rubie.
Prior to the event, each student created a list of questions they wanted to ask their future employers. The questions ranged from: “what is your salon/spa culture like?” to “do you provide advanced classes for your employees” and “what are your starting wages?”
As a result of this successful event, 2 MC College students were given job offers on the spot!
