May 2018 Careers in Motion Event

Careers in Motion – our twice a year student/alumni/industry professional engaged career fair was held May 1, 2018.  76 salon/spa/industry partners with 167 professionals were onsite to conduct interviews, watch technical demonstrations, and network with the current students and 24 alumni that were present.  The event takes months of planning and preparation by the students.  They create their industry friendly resumes, portfolios, and practice their technical skills so that they are ready to meet their potential employers.

Some current students and alumnus were interviewed and hired that day.  Others scheduled interviews and have since been hired.  It was a fun event and everyone was able to network and gain experience with others in the industry

Thank you to all the students, alumnus, industry professionals and partners, and staff who participated.  We truly appreciate your dedication and support of this wonderful industry!
