Finding Employees and Finishing School

I’m pretty sure that running a nail salon without nail techs might pose a bit of a problem. I’m even more certain that my previous sentence could easily win an award for Understatement of the Year. It’s a really good thing that I can laugh at myself or else I would be pulling out my hair.

The task at hand is to Find Licensed Nail Technicians! Who would have guessed this would be so challenging? I thought this might be an issue since I had a hard time finding a beauty school in Chicago that offered a nails-only program, except I did most of my searching online and could have easily missed one or two. But I never guessed that the resumes would trickle in so slowly.

The good thing is I’ve found a couple people that I think would be a good fit. Now, I just need about two or three more licensed nail techs and maybe a couple freelancers and we should be all set. Although I am finding this is much easier said than done.

Any ideas on how I can find the right candidates? I’ve contacted a couple schools outside of the city and posted the position on Simply Hired and Indeed, but I’m wondering if I should also post an ad in the Reader… hmmm.

I’ve also been slacking off on my own studies...I know, I know...but there’s just so much to do! The last thing on my to-do list has been finishing my education in nail technology. But no worries, I am now determined to finish my own nail studies. I’m so close. I just have got to get it done, and now that I’ve blasted it all over Blueprint (ha ha), I guess I better get my butt in gear.

Next on the agenda: Find Licensed Nail Techs! Oh, and Finish School!
