Start Salon Work Experience ASAP

Our courses run in a combo of classrooms and salon settings – but you should also try to get a foot in the door by seeking salon work experience. Look for openings as soon as your course starts for the best chance at employability when you graduate.

  • Ask your regular salon if they have work experience opportunities
  • Start slow and be kind to yourself while you learn
  • Soak up everything you can learn from qualified Beauty Therapists
  • Join Facebook groups, use your networks and be available

Don’t be shy; ask around at your fave salons and be proud of the knowledge you’re gaining during the course.

Own Your Journey

Practicing what you learn in class is the best way to retain new information. You could just turn up for class and complete the assignments, but there are so many more resources available to you:

  • Ask your lecturers questions
  • Get feedback from clients
  • Build empathy for clients (volunteer when your classmates need practice)
  • Access online learning modules at home
  • Make the most of our industry-leading facilities

TrainSmart Australia graduates who seek salon work experience put in effort in class, and take ownership for their career journey are the most attractive to prospective employers. And we mean that – our Diploma of Beauty Therapy graduates have a great reputation around Australia and high employability rates right after graduation.
