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.
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.
Important note about this programBecause a wage is provided for attending this program and receiving skills training, participants are encouraged to think of the program as work. While this program is intended to help you develop personally and professionally, we have set standards of attendance and performance. Just as with any employer, we adhere to a probationary period and reserve the right to terminate your enrolment in the program if expectations are not met.
