Hey Myriam!  First of all, CONGRATS on getting your esthetics license.  Its an exciting time to be in the industry for sure! Lots going on!

In regards to H&S, I'm gonna be honest & shoot straight from the hip if that's Ok.  I was an original hire when H&S in my area 1st started to do aesthetics. OMG! Brutal!!!  I had only been in the industry less than a year.  And H&S knew next to nothing about esthetics, they actually considered facials to be like doing a massage on the face.  I say that to say, a lot is going to depend on the management, & how much they really know about our industry.  Regardless, you are going to have to be willing to do some "hard time".  What I mean by that is it takes awhile to build your books no matter where you are.  I had the luxury of not having to depend on my income to make it.  Which meant I could ride out the "skinny times" til things got more reliable.  If you are not in that position then I would say get an additional job that provides a more reliable income whatever that may be.  Its very difficult to break into this industry so you are fortunate to have this opportunity, its just  a matter of can you ride it out til it's a win/win. If it's anything like my situation, you have just entered into esty boot camp & it will not be time wasted. The networking with other esty's & LMT's is priceless, & the continuing education & the experience is well worth it.  If you can make it at H&S, & do that for at least a year, you will be able to get a job anywhere. I'm gonna close for now but there is sooooo much more.  May I say there is a vast difference between the pie in the sky BS that we get in school & reality.  It's a tough pill to swallow but eventually you need to.  It does not just rain down $$$ on us because we graduated, there is a brutal learning curve for most of us. Don't be discouraged.  Work your shift & give it your all.  It will pay off, it just takes time.

HI Myriam!  My name is Tracy Hopkins & I'm the gal who has worked at a H&S in Oregon for the past 3 1/2 years.  I tried to invite you to be my "friend" but I couldn't figure out how that worked at the moment. Perhaps if you're interested in conversing you could shoot me an invite, or we could use this way.  Let me know!  I'd be happy to talk with you & share my experience
