30 Something and Tired of Your Job? Consider These 3 Careers

Pursuing a career in beauty is the perfect solution to the boring job you’ve grown tired of. Believe it or not, more and more “30 – something” individuals, just like you, are going back to school to get licensed doing something they love.

Continue reading to learn more about three of the most popular programs in the field of beauty. There really is no better time to get started!


A career in cosmetology allows you to get rewarded for doing what you truly enjoy, helping people look their best. You’ll get the chance to discover your creative side while working with clippers, razors and shears.

Career opportunities in the cosmetology field include hairstylist, sales representative, or even spa or salon owner. You might also find work as a hair coloring specialist, making an average of $8,000 more than other cosmetologists… as indicated by a job demand survey conducted in 2007.

Makeup Artistry 

A make-up artistry class gives you the skills you need to work with everyone from models and photographers, to designers and cosmetic companies… bringing their creative vision to life.

You’ll learn about things such as color analysis, color theory, sanitation and safety. You’ll receive additional technical training as well.

There are perks when you choose to attend a MAC preferred school, like Evergreen Beauty College. This includes new student benefits of product samples and various discounts if you sign up for the pro student program.


Between now and 2022, the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that job opportunities in the field of esthetics are expected to grow by 40 percent. This is 28 percent higher than the growth of the overall job market.

With this more specialized career in beauty, you’ll have the chance to help your friends and clients maintain youthful, healthy skin. A few of the techniques covered in an esthetics program include European spa facials, microdermabrasion, touch-therapy techniques, and facial and body waxing. In addition, you’ll learn about skin physiology, chemistry, microbiology, and client safety.

Regardless of what program you choose, Forbes.com recommends that you research employment rates, for each school you’re considering, before you make any final decisions.
