Get a Makeover and Impress Employers

If you’re searching for a job, a fresh look might be the key to your success.

The Muskingum County Opportunity Center is partnering with the Mid-East Cosmotology Lab to offer free makeovers for job seekers.  Project coordinator Justy Cordray said licensed stylists will cut and style hair, and cosmotology students will apply makeup and provide manicures.

"It can be any job seeker, and that includes college students who are just out looking, people who are laid off, unemployed dislocated workers, people who are new to the area – the only criteria is to be a job seeker," said Cordray.

This is the 7th annual event, and Cordray said the makeovers have helped people feel more comfortable during job interviews.

"It does boost your confidence when you leave feeling a little more polished," said Cordray.  "Even if you don’t have a pending interview, and you’re just out job seeking, it still makes you feel better about yourself."

Space is still available, and you can sign up by calling the opportunity center at (740) 454-6211.  The event will take place on Tuesday from 9 AM until 2 PM at Mid-East Career and Technology Centers.
