Further study

Hi

I am coming to the end of my studies in cosmetic science and I have loved what I have learnt so far but of course as a beginner still so much to learn. University for myself is not an option to continue learning at a higher level. I am wondering if there are other short courses or workshops online only that I can do that perhaps specialise in certain areas of topics or something to keep up interest? What do you do to keep current out of the workplace? Are there any mentor programs online that you know of?

thank you in advance

    Have credentialed University-level training in the Sciences, especially Chemistry classes on your resume. "Madame Leona's School of Psychic Reiki and Natural Salve Academy" doesn't get you out of the reject pile at a manufacturer. Get a job at a Manufacturer. There is much to learn. Even start at a Lab Tech level if it gets you real experience. I will say though, that the most impressive person I interviewed showed up with 4 solid Cosmetic samples.

    There are other ways, but this is the most common and effective. A good portion of the good Technical people I worked with did something in this vein.
