What are some of your long-term goals after graduation? I have a BA degree in
journalism and worked as and editor and writer at a magazine. I want my different educations to collaborate; being an editor/writer in the beauty or health department of a magazine would be an ideal job.

This alone can make all the difference in what kind of esthetician you become.
