I am very interested in a career of advanced beauty treatments such as the ones you offer at The Victorian Cosmentic Institute.
I have completed my Beautician Diploma at The Wellington School of Beauty Therapy in 2001 but unfortunatley have only worked in the industry for about a year as I have been travelling alot.
I am still currently living in London but hope to return to New Zealand (where im from) after Christmas and then hope to move to Melbourne in February or March 2012.
I have always had an interest in skin, beauty, healthy diets, fitness etc and would love to learn more, basically I would like to know what I need to do in order to start a career in laser and advanced skin treatments??
Is it possible to start work at a clinic such as yours and learn on the job with further training or would I need to enroll in a specialised coarse and study again?
Any help and advice you can give me would be much appreciated 🙂
I look forward to hearing from you.
You are probably best to find someone to take you under their wing and teach you on the job. We have just hired a beautician, so we are not currently able to help you here, but maybe send me an email again in a few months?
