Get That Job!

If you're keen to try your hand in the makeup industry, or work in events and festivals, Launch Darwin has got you covered with their Get That Job! panels and tutorials.

Jack-of-all-trades legend Amy Hetherington will host a panel discussion with Darwin-based events staff to find out how to get into the industry.

“There’s going to be a lot of chats about what jobs are around and how to become qualified and whether qualifications are relevant,” she says.

“We’ll also look at how to make a sustainable living, because a lot of events happen just in the Dry, so where do people go when there aren’t festivals? And how did they get started and what kind of career journey did they go on?”

Beauty of Tatum owner Kani Tezaris will give job seekers the low-down on what’s needed to get into the beauty industry.

“I have a lot of girls who apply for jobs without realising you need qualifications to work in the industry,” she says.

“You need to look at doing some courses in whatever field you’re interested in – makeup, beauty therapy, lashes.”

Tezaris says she’ll also have a practical workshop on how to present yourself for a job interview.

“It’s for anyone that wants some basic knowledge and makeup skills on how to present themselves,” she says.

“It gives you a confidence boost –  if you look pretty, you feel pretty.”
