4 Goals / Rules Prioritize your goals ______________________________________________________ If you let them do so, you can always expect to have work, and enjoy all the freedom that your chosen profession can offer

5 Moving from school to work Making the transition from school to work can be difficult School is a forgiving environment. You are given the chance to do a certain procedure over and over again until you get it right. Making and fixing mistakes is an accepted part of the process and your instructors and mentors are there to help you ______________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________ You must always be on time for your scheduled shifts Be prepared to perform whatever services or functions are required of you regardless of what is happening in your personal life One practitioner’s selfish and immature decision can create problems for the entire salon

6 Out In the Real World Many students believe they should be rewarded with a high- paying job, and doing only the kinds of services they with to do, as soon as they graduate from cosmetology school. Well, welcome to the “REAL WORLD”. It does not work out that way, at least not for most people The important thing is to be honest with yourself as you evaluate your skills, in order to best determine which type of position is right for you.

7 Service Profession First remember when you are in a service based business your work revolves around servicing your clients, you have no time to be selfish. ________________________________________ Never let the negativity of a few affect your overall outlook

8 Service Profession Guidelines _______________________________ – put your feelings aside and put the needs of the salon and your client first _______________________________– Be someone who can be counted on to tell the truth, and do what you say you will do ________________________________ – scheduling is central to the salon business ________________________________ – it is an honor to have a job! If you become unhappy with your salon, look for another job and move on before your start acting in an ungrateful, disrespectful manner ________________________________– Be someone who recognizes problems promptly, and finds ways to resolve them constructively ________________________________ – you may not like or agree with the salon manager or their rules, but you must give her the benefit of the doubt. If you cannot come to terms with the salon’s rules, then it is time for you to find a new job before your anger takes over ________________________________ – keep on learning. Thinking that you will never need to learn anything more once you are out of school is immature and limiting

9 Salon Teamwork Working in a salon requires that you practice and perfect your people skills In order to become a good team player: Strive to help – be concerned not only with your own success, but also with the success of others Pitch in – Be willing to help with whatever needs to be done in the salon Share your Knowledge – be willing to share what you know Remain positive – there will be lots of opportunities for you to become negative or to have conflicts with your teammates resist all temptations to give in to maliciousness and gossip Become a relationship builder- you do not have to be someone’s best friend in order to build a good working relationship with that person Be willing to resolve conflicts – conflict is also a natural part of life. If you can work constructively toward resolving conflict, you will always be a valued member of the team Be willing to be subordinate – no one starts at the top. Once you get to the top never forget where you came from Be sincerely loyal – management needs to be loyal to the staff and clients. Ideally, clients will be loyal to the practitioner and the salon

13 Commission A percentage of the revenue that the salon takes in, is usually offered to practitioners once they have built up a loyal clientele. ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Commissions are paid based on percentages and can range anywhere from 25 – 60%, depending on your length of time at the salon, your performance level, and the benefits that are part of your employment package You may not be able to make a living on straight commission compensation Example: if you generate $500.00 in sales for the week and you are on a 60% commission then your pay for the week before taxes would be ____________________
