student testimonial

Dear Courtney;
Thank you for responding to my advertisement for both Nail Technician and Massage Therapist.  I respect and appreciate that your school teaches young women and men skill sets but helps to follow-up and place them in positions within our community.  I further appreciate your time discussing possible candidates and your inquiries as to a former student of yours, Janet Salazar.
I have offered a position to a recent graduate of yours, Holly Cozad.  I will let you know how we progress at our next interview/practicum.  Your feedback relative to this candidate was very helpful in our decision making.  We, too, have found her to be “exceptional”.
I would like to further acknowledge our appreciation of the school’s contribution to one of our first employees hired “At The Beach, Day Spa”.  Although, Janet was only nineteen when we hired her in July, 2009, she has been an outstanding employee, mature beyond her years.
Her pride of where she had graduated from spoke well of both you and Janet.  Certainly, Janet’s work ethics must be credited to her family and faith—but the confidence she gained Bellus seemed to align well with her own values.  Janet arrives early to work, always with a smile and ready to provide an outstanding level of service to our guests.  She is attentive to the salon’s goals and standards and always participates in a very positive way.  As a new licensee, over the last nine months Janet has taken very positively to constructive criticism; attentively and respectfully. 
Janet is a lovely asset to “At the Beach”.  She uses her initiative to look for what may need to be done in the “house” as well as practices her tutorials to improve her skills.  This has earned her two pay increases; one particularly relating to over-all time to accomplish given tasks (time for basic pedi’s, and mani’s), as well as, quality workmanship in both the use of her drill for acrylics, French mani’s and original nail art.  As Janet has remained such an outstanding employee we recently agreed to send her to an outside source to improve her acrylic skills.  We are following her growth in this area and her trainer is very pleased with her improvement—as are all of us!
Thank you Bellus Academy for the foundation and the appropriate reinforcement of work skills and decorum which have allowed us to have such a great candidate become a valued member of our family ”At The Beach”!

Dawn Rotundo, At the Beach Salon & Spa
