Image consulting is a natural fit for human resources professionals. Several of our students come from a corporate human resources background. They add image consulting as a way to go into business for themselves or to make them more appealing to promotions within their current corporations.  Much of what Human Resources Professionals already do is gauge every image that comes into their office looking for work. They use their eye for fashion, style, communication and behavior to make decisions about who would make the best fit for the position they are hiring for and the company they work for. In a way, they are Image Consultants in the making without even knowing it.
