Here at Compass Career College of Hammond, LA, we offer a cosmetology program that trains our students to know how to excel in a career in health and beauty. Our classroom training is coupled with our on-campus salon, which allows students to put their skills to real-life practice, under the supervision of faculty and staff.
With a faster-than-average job growth outlook of 10% through 2024 (according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics), and with the ability to pursue this career without the need for an expensive, time-consuming traditional college degree, you can see why our cosmetology program has become a popular offer to students of all ages, regardless of their background or experience.
Many of our students come into the program nervous and unsure if they have what it takes to make it. In their first few weeks, they struggle to hold both scissors and comb simultaneously, yet by the time they're ready to graduate, they're styling hair with ease, creativity, and flair.
But like any other career, the transition from classroom to "the real world" can be tricky and challenging. With so much growth and excitement gained from your schooling, how can you use that to your advantage in your career?
