After spending the last three years of my life working as hard as I could towards my degree, I needed to face the cold hard facts that the likelihood of finding a job in what was my current career path was seeming less and less likely. I needed to accept the fact that I had spent the last few years of my life working towards a dead end. The quicker I accepted this reality the better. I knew I had to make a change as soon as possible. I had always been interested in careers involving skin care and make up application. After some reading I learned that an esthetician salary is extremely competitive. This was good news, but would this just be another dead end career choice? Would I actually be able to find employment in this area? I continued to learn as much as I could about estheticians and found out that it is one of the fastest growing job markets in the country. I knew then exactly what I needed to do.
