From the 12th to the 16th of March all TYs took a break from school to go on a week of work experience. There is a great choice of places to do work experience in Enniscorthy, ranging from a wide variety of restaurants to solicitors to hair salons. I chose to do mine in a local nail salon called Beautique as I am really interested in all aspects of beauty, especially nails. Beautique doesn't open on Mondays so lucky for me, I enjoyed a lie in on Monday morning!
I came in on Tuesday to find one of my friends Shannon was also doing work experience there, we were introduced to the 2 nail technicians that were working that day, Samantha and Saoirse.
We were very busy throughout the week with organising different types of nail polish, tidying and also shadowing Samantha and Saoirse when they were doing a set of gel nails.
We learned how to book in appointments on the computer system and we also got back to messages on the Facebook page.
We even acted as DJs for the week by controlling the music that was played in the salon!
Overall it was a great week and I really got an insight into the day to day working life of a nail technician.
