About a Career as an Image Consultant

Imagine having an exciting high-paying job showing people and companies how to make a fabulous impression. Welcome to the world of image consulting!

“Image” is the way other people see us. It influences whether people will agree to our requests, hire us, and pay us the salary we want.

As an image consultant, you can give people advice that will help them achieve what they want – whether it is to get a new job, to make a good impression, or simply to feel good about themselves.

To help people make a better impression, you might give feedback and help them improve their overall image, specific aspects of their physical appearance (wardrobe, colors, hairstyle, etc.), or their vocal or non-verbal communication.

You might work with women who want a new look, beauty pageant contestants, lawyers and their clients, cancer survivors, television personalities, transgender individuals, spouses of executives, politicians, or singles seeking a partner.

You might also be hired by corporate clients to work with executives, or even earn up to thousands of dollars per day to present training programs.

Taking the Image Consultant course has been such a great investment. I was able to apply the information learned in the very first week. The course allowed me to build on my existing knowledge and skills and formulate a professional structure for conducting consultations and setting up my business. Additionally, my assigned staff member provided a wealth of information and inspiration. Thank you IAP!
