Wine & Cheese, Anyone?
Creative Images Institute of Cosmetology is hosting their annual career fair and networking event on September 8th at Dayton’s Schuster Performing Arts Center. The event was created to allow current students, as well as alumni, an opportunity to meet and network with the Dayton area’s top salons and day spas. The current students also benefit from interview rehearsals, resume writing classes and “How to Dress for Success” workshops done in preparation of the event.
The red carpet will be rolled out to greet the salon owners and managers as well as professional product company representatives, industry vendors and purveyors, and other industry professionals. They will enjoy elegant catering “cheese “and open bar “wine”. We had high level beauty industry executives tell us that the 2013 event was par none one of the best events of its kind hosted by a cosmetology school.
We are hoping to see more than 100 salon & spa owners/managers at this year’s event. Last year there were over 80 salon and spas represented with over 300 people in attendance, including CI’s students and alumni.
It is a great networking and hiring opportunity that brings current students and alumni together with professionals in the industry; all with one goal in mind: create successful careers in the beauty industry. We experienced over 20 students being offered positions upon graduation at our 2012 Wine & Cheese.
The Wine & Cheese has become so much more. We now showcase our Design Team on stage, which includes a runway presentation as well as platform work. The Design Team is a group of talented students that try out for the Team to compete in beauty shows as well as doing several charity events. CI’s alumni are encouraged to attend so they can share their success stories and continue networking with our industry professionals.
Creative Images is not the typical cosmetology college that focuses primarily on the State test needed to obtain a license. CI focuses on the student’s beauty industry career from day one of enrollment. Career-minded students make the most successful graduates.
