Hi. I have a couple months left of school and I am working on my resume. What are some tips for writing one? I don't have any official salon experience though I have been doing my own and my friends nails for a while.

What should I expect from an interview? I will hopefully have a few in the very near future.

I prefer to hire employees right out of school, but am disappointed at how few can follow the instruction included in my job posting which is to submit a resume via email, not call or visit the salon. Of course, the resumes that I do receive often leave much to be desired, particularly with regard to spelling and grammar. I won't even interview someone whose resume isn't done well.

I never understand how people don't double check their resumes. I always triple check my work. What do you look for in a resume?
To a certain extent, the resume itself demonstrates a person's ability to follow instructions, pay attention to detail and adapt their education and experience to that written format. Besides typos, another disqualifier is a work history filled with short-term positions, like 8 months in ABC Salon followed by 5 months at Xanadu Spa and so on. Also, I'll do my research (Google, Facebook, references) to give me insight on personal life/character. Hiring and training manicurists requires a large investment; I only want ones who can thrive in our salon environment for the long-term.

Thank you so much! I'm about to graduate soon and I'm worrying about how to put it together.
