Q: Thanks so much for chatting with us today Courtney! Let’s start with the basics. What program did you take at CBBC Career College?
Courtney MacMullin: I took the aesthetics program which was offered out of Regency Training Salon in Halifax and graduated this year (2020).
Q: What specifically made you choose CBBC Career College for your education?
CM: The in depth knowledge that [salon manager] Judy gave me during a school tour! She gave a solid outline of what was being taught, how it was being taught, and what the expectations were from the students. Judy demonstrated a passion for the industry that left me feeling confident that I would receive the best and highest-quality education.
Q: What were you seeking to gain from your education?
CM: I was looking to learn the art of aesthetics and follow a path of purpose-meets-passion. I wanted to love what I do for a living – and I really do now! I was also looking for new employment opportunities and a fresh new beginning (which I found). It may sound like a bit of a cliche but happiness is my wealth. CBBC really has exceeded my expectations in terms of providing the tools needed to reach my goals and I’m living the life I dreamt of before I started school.
Q: That sounds like a big life change! How exactly has your life changed since graduation?
CM: My life has changed in so many ways! I’m working at Spirit Urban Spa as a full-time Aesthetician. I’ve found happiness in my everyday life and my work is not a chore anymore. I live with purpose and educate clients with integrity; a building block that I learned at CBBC!
Q: What skills and abilities specifically did you gain at CBBC that have led to your success?
CM: SO MANY! Besides my obvious aesthetics skills and knowledge, I now have stronger communication, business building, team work, time management, and problem solving skills. I’ve also gained a much stronger sense of responsibility and accountability. I feel confident that my education has set me up for the success that I’m so lucky to be experiencing now.
Q: What advice would you give to someone who is considering a program at CBBC Career College?
CM: The homework is already done – trust me, CBBC is the school to invest in! Feel confident that this is a place for valued education. You will learn from the best and with the best.
