Lenexa, KS, Oct 02, 2009 – Beauty itself might not be forever, but careers in the beauty industry are showing their wherewithal by withstanding an uncertain economy. Even with many households’ decisions to trim spending, jobs in the beauty industry are growing faster than the national average because of the increasing demand for personal appearance services, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Despite the job openings, finding an open spot at a local salon has depended largely on word of mouth and networking. Now, that can happen online through the Beauty School Lounge and its new job board.
The Beauty School Lounge (http://lounge.beautyschoolsdirectory.com/) is an interactive boutique where beauty enthusiasts around the globe can network, access helpful tools, follow the hottest styles, and post and find jobs. More than 600 professional profiles have been added since the social media section was introduced in June. Businesses all over the United States have been taking advantage of the free postings, including beauty schools, salons, spas, cosmetics counters and more. Beauty jobs have been added in a variety of positions, from nail technicians to estheticians, hair stylists and massage therapists.
“Online networking was the ultimate goal for the Lounge, which made the job board a logical addition and a way to help professionals and employers,” said Bridget Duffy, Managing Director of Beauty Schools Marketing Group. “It’s great for all levels of experience in the beauty field, from recently graduated beauty school students to seasoned professionals in the field.”
The process for posting new job openings or applying is simple. Users create an account and can build a personal profile and portfolio. To post a free job listing, all you have to do is go to the Jobs page, click on the “Add a job listing” icon, enter in the job description and click “Save.” It’s quick and easy. Members can find beauty jobs and apply for them all at the Lounge: http://lounge.beautyschoolsdirectory.com/jobs. Posts are added daily for part-time and full-time positions.
