Beauty Industry Youth Employment Program

EXECUTIVE SPA GROUP BEAUTY INDUSTRY CAREERS

PROGRAM COMMITMENT October 29, 2018- March 22, 2019

Beautiful Futures has 2 components:

In-class (8 weeks)

M-F; 10am-4:30pm
OCT. 29- DEC. 21, 2018

You will acquire fundamental skills required for any job regardless of industry. However, our goal is to help you gain personal development, life and employment skills, and transferrable skills to take you anywhere you want to go in the beauty industry.

You will participate in Skill Enhancement on Fridays. Exposure Certification in Manicures and Pedicures will be awarded upon successful completion of your work experience, training quotas, and passing marks on required exams.

Placement (12 weeks)

35 hours minimum/week
DEC. 31, 2018- MARCH 22, 2019

During this 2nd portion, you will gain skills and work experience in entry-level beauty industry-related or retail jobs. Work experience can be completed at different salons, spas, medispas, health and wellness centres, and retail outlets throughout the city.

ESG does not guarantee placement in the beauty industry. Beauty industry job placements are awarded to participants that show readiness, ability, and willingness to work. ESG assesses your suitability for different types of employment throughout the classroom component.
NOTE: Participants must accept the placement assigned to them and must make themselves available for work for a minimum of 35 hours per week. Completion of the Work Experience component of this course is mandatory for certification in the technical training received.

Is funding provided for this program?

Yes, funding is provided by the Government of Canada to help cover the cost of basic living expenses while obtaining employment training. Financial assistance is provided to participants throughout the classroom component on an hourly wage at Alberta’s minimum wage.

The placement component is a paid work experience. You earn a wage while completing this portion. In some scenarios, the possibility exists to turn the work experience into a permanent position, so make sure to impress your employer! Days of the week will vary amongst employers, but remember, weekends are busy days for the beauty industry, so be prepared to commit!

NOTE: Do not apply if you are not prepared to work weekends! The Beauty industry thrives on the weekend and weekend work is expected of an entry-level employee.

LASH EXTENSIONS MODEL CRITERIA

ESG beauty careers

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

Eyelash extensions are a wonderful addition to your beauty routine.
 
ESG students learn proper skills and techniques by performing services on models to obtain their Lash Extensions course certification.

All services provided by ESG students are free of charge, tipping is optional.
We are primarily concerned for the health of your natural lashes and want to be certain you meet the following criteria:

Please ensure you meet the following criteria before booking your appointment:

  • Your eyes are free of any signs or symptoms of infection;
  • Your eyes have fully recovered from recent eye surgeries or procedures;
  • You are comfortable lying down for a few hours;
  • Consult your physician if you are pregnant and/or have medical conditions, in recovery from treatments, taking medications or have allergies.
Considering the items above, there may be some candidates, who experience the following factors which may not be candidates for eyelash extension services:
  • Those who rub their eyes frequently –if this is from allergies or out of habit;
  • Those who have highly sensitive skin – while we do carry a low-allergen adhesive, this service may cause more reactions in certain candidates;
  • If you are ill or currently have allergies – if you have a cold, sinus infection, bronchitis, or flu, etc. please stay home and get well. No worries, we can reschedule your appointment for a time when you are feeling well.
  • If your natural lashes are very curly – unfortunately as your natural lash grows in, the extension will lay in an unnatural direction. This may be more irritating for you, and because of this excess “wear” on the lash, the extensions will not last as long.
  • If your natural eye shape is too deep inset or if your cheekbones are too high – to perform our procedure, we need to be able to effectively isolate your lower lashes from your upper lashes.  This is not possible to do so on some clients with deep-set eyes or high cheekbones.  Don’t be discouraged; we have a few tricks – if we can manage to get the upper and lower lashes separated, we’ll certainly apply your extensions.
  • If you don’t have natural eyelashes – our extensions are placed on a natural lash; and we need your natural lash to be healthy and strong enough to support an extension. Unlike using other lash processes such as a strip or flares, we cannot create lashes where there aren’t any.
  • If you have an allergy to cyanoacrylate.
Did you meet all the criteria? Book your appointment by emailing us at info@executivespagroup.com
We require all models to arrive on time and be available for the entire duration of the required time. Thank you for volunteering your time!
