At Chic Studios, LA makeup school, we know just how important it is to push yourself, especially in the job market. In our Bridal + Business week, a part of our Professional Makeup Course, we go over the basics of becoming a freelance makeup artist: building your beauty brand, creating a portfolio, and making a resume.

A great resume is still one of the most important and contributing factors when entering the job market. It gives potential employers a quick overview of your skill set, job experience, and education so that they can make an immediate decision on asking you to come in for an interview. According to TheLadders, an online job matching service, recruiters approximately spend six seconds reviewing a resume. Within that tiny window of opportunity, you’ll need to make a lasting and great first impression. The following are do’s and don’ts for resumes that will make you stand out in the beauty industry. These tips are sure to make sure you are a cut above the rest and snag an interview with your potential employer.


Interview Questions That Will Wow Your Future Boss

Picture this: you’ve finally snagged an amazing interview opportunity in the beauty industry. Your potential employer is laughing at all the right times and loving all your answers to the questions they have asked you. However, as the interview is winding down, your potential employer goes “do you have any questions for me?” and your mind goes blank. You have nothing to ask! You simply say “No I do not,” shake hands, and never hear from that employer again. What went wrong?

At Chic Studios, NYC makeup school, during our Bridal + Business week, we stress how important it is to get to know the company you’re interviewing with. After setting up the interview appointment, quickly do some research on where they’re located, how did they start, what their social media looks like, etc. Take some notes and from there, formulate questions to wow your future boss during your interview. It not only looks great on you, but it shows your potential employer that you’re genuinely interested in working there and want to know more about the company culture.
