What is the best paying job for a year time?
I will graduating soon with college loans. I will be taking a year break to work and prep for graduate school. What is a temp job (in San Fran) I can do that pays the most if I was only to work there for a year?
I’m not looking for a long term career. I was thinking working in the mall/mac/sephora unless being a waitress is more profitable (because of the tips). What should I do?
What are some resources I can use to find myself one?
In SF, two of the best resources for finding jobs are craigslist.org and Jobing.com. Good luck!
Are there any specific qualifications you need when applying for a job at Sephora or mac?
I am going to school for esthetics and need a job while attending school
You should look at the Sephora website and be somewhat familiar with the major labels, and what things they carry (perfumes, men/women, body, etc.). You need to look VERY neat (no wild hair, too many piercings or too much bling) and I would wear subdued colors (you are featuring the products in a store, not yourself). Fill out the application very neatly as well, which shows you in good favor. No gum chewing, too much makeup, and be sure to smile and be friendly but not too chatty. Have a 60-second “speech” about yourself (you are going to aesthetician school and want to have a career as a ___, etc.). Finally, consider what YOU can do for them, not the other way around.
Im really interested in becoming a makeup artist, how would i go about this?
Im particularly interested in film, photography, and runway makeup. Im 16 and a sophmore in hs. how would i go about preparing to get into the industry?
I would find about cosmotology schools in your area, and even state and see what the requirements are (I believe in my state, you have to be 18 and a h.s. Graduate). If you find that you need a GED or High School diploma, you could get your GED at this age, and attend (just make sure they don’t have an age requirement). You could continue to take general classes at community college and get a diploma in business (might even help you with your makeup artist career; or you can do all your lower level credits for a business degree and once your finished 2 – 3 years, you can spend 2 years at a state school and get your bachelors) This way, you have something solid to fall back on and plus you WILL learn techniques on how to market and handle a business (I’m a business major, and I’ve heard a lot!). If your parents don’t let you get your GED now, you can always start practicing makeup at home (on your friends and class mates and relatives; and if your good, you could maybe do make up for prom or something, but I should warn you, learn about cleaning and sterilization as a makeup artist) and learn off youtube and other blogs, and once you finish h.s. You could have a client basis and learn the art professionally. And yes, working at MAC, Macys, Sephora, or Ulta can help you get clients. I know some artists at MAC who freelance…oh and some make up guru’s on youtube have gotten deals from big companies like Lancome, theres one youtube make up guru who got hired by Lancome to make videos about thier products because they saw she had a big fan base.
