Editor's Note: Check out Skin Inc. magazine's blog "The Making of an Esthetician" to learn more about two women who have recently graduated from esthetic school and are currently launching their careers.

Each year, thousands of people receive training and earn their esthetic licenses. However, many individuals pursue employment in this field only briefly or not at all. Some go back to their previous field because they were disappointed with some or several aspects of the job they took within the esthetic industry. Often, they just look for any job in the industry without considering the importance of the environment, products, scheduling, services, and the management or support staff of that business.


If you know you have a commitment at your church on a certain night or need to regularly pick up your children from an activity, you might consider a spa that has several estheticians on the team. This allows for more flexibility among employees because others can cover work hours if necessary. If it is important to you to have a regular work schedule or to not come in during weekends, you might think about working at a dermatology office because staff members rarely work on weekends or evenings. It may be worth pursuing more advanced education in order to work in this setting. An additional option is to open your own business where you can adjust your schedule as you see fit.
