Step 1 - Let’s Start at the Beginning
An apprenticeship is just like any other employment opportunity, you will be working in a live salon environment where your employer is usually the business owner. So it is up to you to show them that you are what they need!
Make sure you have a CV that is focussed on the role you are applying for, if you are just leaving school and don’t have a CV full of exciting previous roles, sell yourself with an amazing covering letter. Shout out about your love of the hair and beauty industry, your determination to become a superstar stylist, and your dedication to making a difference in the salon.
If you need help with getting these set up you can find some fantastic online resources to give you the best possible CV and covering letter. Check out The Apprenticeship Guide or the National Careers Service, or for those who like a more personal service just visit your local Job Centre Plus, where your adviser can help you to write a CV and covering letter, fill out an application form, prepare for an interview and look for a job vacancy most suited to your skills.
