If you are currently learning flower arrangements by taking lessons and always looking for opportunities of working as a trainee or volunteer, you should not miss Christmas season. Many of floral shops are pretty busy during a Christmas season. Some of them hire trainees or interns during a very busy time. Some of floral shops pay compensation to trainees (students learning floral arrangement) who are hired as a temporary workers. Some don’t pay any compensation or part time wage. If your skill of floral designing is good, floral shop owners usually don’t hesitate to pay you compensation.
The reason behind some people looking for a temporary job as a trainee or volunteer is that they can have priceless experiences working at a floral shop. If their floral arranging skill is satisfactory to the owner of a floral shop, they can work as a part time floral designer. If their skill is not enough to work as a floral designer, they may be assigned another type of job such as assisting the floral designers, taking care of incoming phone call or carrying flowers whatsoever.
After earning some flower arranging skills at a floral design school, many students would like to have actual working experience in the market field so that they can verify what they learned and use their skill in the market. As a matter of fact, during a busy holiday season such as Thanksgiving and Christmas time, some floral design schools are approached by floral shops (or florists) that are
looking for assistants and helps who can temporarily work at their shop. This kind of business brings WIN-WIN situation. Namely floral shops can hire students for free or for affordable rate of labor cost AND at the same time students can experience actual field work. For students who are seriously planning to have their own floral shop, this kind of experience is quite valuable.
After busy holiday season is over, floral shops don’t have to continue keeping these temporary workers. Since business owners always try to minimize the operation cost, the fact they don’t have to employ permanent workers is quite beneficial to them. From the standpoint of students, even if they earn flower arranging skills at a school, they had better become familiar with how the floral shop is operated or how the business is actually done. They can learn how to take care of customers in addition to making floral arrangements as a floral designer.
