WITH the current state of the employment market, you might be finding your dream job a tough one to nail down.

If this is the case, a beautician from Times Territory might be able to help.

Jenni Draper, from Canons Field, Welwyn, has been a nail technician for 10 years.

In that time, she has become a widely respected expert, working closely with celebrity manicurist Andrea Fulerton and holding seminars and workshops for people interested in getting into the industry.

Jenni said: "It's hard work. It's a very early start; I had to be up at four in the morning to be there for six every day.

"But it's good fun and a great sense of achievement at the end of it."

So what's her advice to anyone wishing to work with some of the biggest names in fashion?

"You have to be prepared to work hard and at all hours, and put 110 per cent in," Jenni said.

"Don't be scared to try and don't expect it to happen for you overnight. It's taken me 10 years to get where I am, but if you work hard you will always get there."

Jenni offers a range of training programmes from beginners to experts from her salon. Call her on 07939574113 or 01438 718115 or email no15beauty@gmail.com.
