Image Consulting and Soft Skills Training – the Dream Career Choices for GenZ and Millennials

The upcoming workforce is changing the way it perceives jobs. Millennials and GenZ professionals do not just work for money;  they want career satisfaction. And having worked in different industries before I set up my image consulting and soft skills training firm, I can confidently say that image consultants and soft skills trainers get the career satisfaction we all desire. Read on to know how.

Early Exposure

Currently thousands of crores huge, Image Consulting and Soft Skills Training is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world. With everyone looking for ways to up their game, be it in the professional or personal life, the demand is only going to increase. And this is the reason professionals from various industries, including IT, HR, Hospitality, Finance, etc. are migrating to the Image Management industry.

To get a head start, you can become an image consultant or a soft skills trainer even before completing your education. This way, you can take up small projects while you’re still studying to gain exposure, so when you’re ready to work full-time, you would have already done this part.

One Course and Many Career Opportunities

The trend says it – Millennials and GenZ workers want purpose, so they are crafting their jobs and chartering new targets to cut monotony. They don’t ‘adjust’ to a job. And this is another reason why image consulting and soft skills training are perfect career choices for students.

With a single image consulting and soft skills certification, you get access to many career paths such as:

·      Personal Styling

·      Corporate Styling

·      Celebrity Styling

·      Wardrobe Consulting

·      Makeover Consulting

·      Media/Film/TV Styling

·      Personal Shopping

·      Etiquette Coaching

·      Behavioural Skills Training

·      Employability/Job Skills Training

·      Communication Training

·      Personality Development Training

·      Confidence Coaching, etc.

You can either pick a niche or take up a variety of projects to keep exploring and learning.

Age and Education No Bar

Whether you’re 17 or 70, whether you have no qualification or a Ph.D. – you can become an image consultant and soft skills trainer. Irrespective of your academic or professional background, you can opt for these courses if you have:

·      Good communication skills

·      Confidence

·      Eye for detail

·      Good fashion sense

·      The knack of staying updated with the latest fashion trends

·      Empathy

High Earning Potential

Image consulting and soft skills training are one of the most rewarding professions since you can earn anywhere between INR 10,000 and INR 1 Lac per project – all you need is the right skills and a beneficial network.

You can take up both short-term and long-term projects and earn up to your full potential. For example, bridal styling projects that may not take more than 15 to 20 days can help you earn more than a Lac in just a single project. Similarly, just one corporate training project that may continue for 1 to 2 months based on the training structure can earn you up to 2 to 3 Lac, or even more.

You will be trained on all the skills, but the niche you choose will determine your earning potential.

A Chance to be an Entrepreneur

Professionals usually gain significant experience before starting something of their own. But as an image consultant and soft skills trainer, you can do that as soon as you get certified. If you’ve always wanted to become an entrepreneur, you can set up your business right away. But if you want to get some corporate experience first, you can do that too. And the best part? Some great image consulting and soft skills training institutes also offer business enablement support to help you launch yourself in the industry.

Image consulting and soft skills training are careers of the 21stcentury and are perfect choices for today’s young and bold. If you think you’re the right fit, jump on the bandwagon and get certified in soft skills training and image consulting.

Take control and change your life.
