SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY AND OBJECTIVES
Our goal is to provide an up-to-date course of instruction for persons above the compulsory age of high school attendance, who we feel have demonstrated through our entrance interview, the ability to benefit from this training.
Our aim is to provide each individual student with the current state-of-the-art teaching methods and to prepare them at graduation to enter the field of cosmetology after passing their state examination.
These persons will be prepared to realize their full potential as professionals in the salon/spa as a stylist or technical expert in the various skills such as permanent waving, color, styling, precision shaping, or skin care and make-up. Other areas of employment these persons will be able to enter will be platform artists for major manufacturers, product technicians, sales personnel, and cosmetology education, just to name a few.

WHAT IS A LEADER?
A leader is one who guides others in a legal and moral way and with responsibility toward himself, his position, and with regard for his fellow man. If I want to be a leader, I have to act like a leader!

WHAT IS A PROFESSIONAL?
A professional is one who renders service and counsel to a client. “Act the way you want to be and soon you’ll be the way you act.” If I want to be a professional, then I have to act like a professional.

SATISFACTORY PROGRESS POLICY

Students receiving any funds from Federal Title IV financial aid programs must maintain satisfactory progress in order to continue eligibility for such funds.

Satisfactory progress in attendance and academic work is a requirement for all students enrolled in this school and in order for a student to be making satisfactory progress at this school; he/she must meet the following standards:
LENGTH OF COURSE
The length of our cosmetology course is mandated by state law and consists of a minimum of 1800 clock hours of in-school training. The maximum time frame for completion of all courses is 150%. In order to be making satisfactory progress the student must complete the course within the 150% maximum time frame allowance.

Course Name Course Length Maximum Time Frame/Scheduled Hours
Cosmetology 1800 Hours 2070 Hours
Esthetics 1000 Hours 1150 Hours
Manicuring 600 Hours 690 Hours
ACADEMIC PROGRESS STANDARD
The following factors will be used to determine academic progress:
1. Theory grades including homework, projects, etc.
Practical/Laboratory Work
Practical work will be evaluated in a uniform and consistent manner for all courses offered. The criteria for acceptance of practical work includes set up, safety, sanitation, preparation, consultation, staff interaction, execution, timeframe, and completion.
Theory Grades
Written theory tests are given over the subjects that are being taught in the unit of study. As the theory chapter is completed, the student will be given a written test that is scored on a scale as follows: 90-100%=A, 80-89%=B, 75-79%=C, below 75%=Failing.

Any student that fails to maintain a minimum score of 75% will be scheduled for a counseling session with the director of the school. At this time the student will be placed on a remedial study program, which entails that the student complete all relating study chapters in their workbook and have them checked by their theory instructor for accuracy. If the student continues to fall below 75% grade level, they will be scheduled for counseling with the manager of the school. At this time the student will be placed on not less than a 30-day (scheduled school days) probationary period. If the student fails to bring up their grade level to a 75% minimum within this period, the student will be suspended from attending any further classes. The student must make up all back tests (which are limited to only three tests failed) before they may return to school and resume their clock-in training.
ATTENDANCE PROGRESS STANDARD
Students must maintain a schedule of attendance that will allow them to complete the program in not more than one and one-half times their course length. This means a student must be attending 67% of the possible hours of scheduled attendance to insure completion of the program within the maximum time frame.

1. Attendance is evaluated on a cumulative basis. At each evaluation point, attendance will be added to the attendance from the preceding months to determine whether the student will complete the course within the maximum time frame established in this policy.
2. Students absent more than 30 consecutive days will be terminated unless the Department of Education requires us to follow a different policy at the time of termination. The Department of Education requires a student to be more than 10 consecutive days of absenteeism before termination.
EVALUATIONS
Progress reports are maintained on each student and are reviewed with the student periodically for the purpose of counseling toward maintaining passing grades.

Students meeting minimum attendance and academic requirements at evaluation will be considered making satisfactory progress, until the next scheduled evaluation. Students failing to meet minimum progress requirements will be placed on probation. Students are allowed a probationary period to bring their grades up to a passing level after counseling.

PROBATION: (determined making satisfactory progress). If improvement to minimum requirements does not occur by the end of the probation period, a second probation will apply. Financial Aid (if applicable) continues during the first probationary period.

SECOND CONSECUTIVE PROBATION (determined not making satisfactory progress at the end of the probationary period) Financial aid funds (if applicable) are suspended until all minimum requirements for satisfactory progress are met. Student must make or increase cash payments for the balance of tuition owed until satisfactory progress is reestablished.

CONTINUED PROBATION (determined not to making satisfactory progress) At the current progress student will not graduate by contract ending date. The student will owe additional instructional charges according to their enrollment contract after their contract ending date.

Furthermore, if a student does not meet the minimum satisfactory progress requirements for three (3) consecutive evaluations, the student’s enrollment may be terminated.

NOTE: It is the intent of ideal Beauty Academy to continually assess progress of the student. It is student’s responsibility to complete the program within terms of their enrollment contract.
STUDENT APPEAL PROCESS
All students who are being evaluated regardless of (a) financial funding or (b) type of evaluation (academic or attendance) shall have the ability to question and challenge the staff evaluation directly to the school manager by filling out the request for counseling form located in the student handbook or from the school office and returning it directly to the manager. If the documented evaluation does not appear to be valid, the manager of the school will schedule a second evaluation that will be administered by the manager or by a staff member other than the original evaluator. All evaluations, counseling, probations, and suspensions must be documented, signed and dated by all parties involved. Each party involved will receive a copy of the documentation.
LEAVE OF ABSENCE
Should a student find it necessary to be out of school for a significant period of time due to medical difficulties, a medical leave of absence must be requested in writing in advance. A

physician must request this medical leave on a physician’s form. During an approved leave of absence, the student may not receive financial assistance. In the case of personal injury or illness the student is forced to temporarily take a leave of absence, this period of time in number of school days will be added to the graduation date, which will extend the student contract without causing a penalty charge. A student is allowed one or more leave per 12-month period for a total up to 180 calendar days. A leave of absence will extend a students maximum time frame and contract end date by the same number of days in the leave of absence. In the event that the contract end date has passed at the time of a leave of absence the contract end date will remain the same.

If a student is making satisfactory progress in theory and practical evaluation, but must take a leave of absence; that student’s financial aid will not be applied for until the student returns from their leave. When the student returns, they will be considered as still meeting satisfactory progress and all financial aid qualified for will be applied to the student’s account. If for any reason the student does not return from their leave when scheduled, they will be administratively dropped from ideal Beauty Academy and their financial aid that remains will be returned to the lender and applied to their account as set out in their contract.
WITHDRAWAL
Any student that discontinues classes or is suspended for any reason may re-enter school by scheduling a counseling session with the manager of the school to establish future goals and class schedules as well as any additional documentation that may be needed.

If a student is dismissed or discontinues classes while meeting satisfactory progress they may re-enter classes as set forth in the school re-enrollment procedures as meeting satisfactory school progress. If a student is dismissed or discontinues classes and is not meeting satisfactory progress, they may re-enter classes but will be on 30 days probation to start to re-establish satisfactory progress. Failure to meet satisfactory progress standards within this 30 days probation will result in the student being dismissed from school for a period of not less than 6 months or more than 12 months period of time, before re-enrollment will be allowed.¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬
RE-ESTABLISHMENT OF ATTENDANCE
If a student finds it necessary to discontinue scheduled classes for reasons beyond their control (health, family health, injury, etc.) all financial aid shall be held in abeyance by the school until such time as the student shall re-enter classes. If the student is placed on probation all eligible funds shall be administered by the school and applied to the student account as needed for the length of the probation period, as the student on probation will be considered as meeting satisfactory progress. If the student is suspended, all financial aid funds will be returned to the appropriate agencies if the student fails to re-enter. If the student does re-enter, within the appropriate time period, the school will ask the appropriate agency to reissue the check.

Return of Title IV Funds:

Process Overview & Applicability

The return of Title IV funds requirement is a complex process involving a great deal of
interoffice cooperation and coordination at ideal Beauty Academy and between ideal
Beauty Academy and ECM. The Office of Academic Affairs is designated as contact
points for students who wish to withdraw. The Office of Academic Affairs determines the withdrawal date and reports it to other institutional offices and the Department of Education. The Financial
Aid Administrator calculates the return of Title IV funds using federal formulas, notifies
ECM in writing to complete recovery of Title IV funds to specific program funds, notifies
the student of his or her obligation to repay funds if applicable, tracks the repayment,
and refers overpayments to ED. It also offers the student any earned post-withdrawal
disbursement and follow procedures and policies pertaining to this indicated in the
award notification part of the manual.

The date of Ideal Beauty Academy’s determination that a student withdrew is identified
through faculty input, students failure to return from an approved leave of absence,
student’s verbal or written notification to any office such as Office of Academic Affairs,
Financial Aid Administrator etc.

In the event of any unofficial withdrawal, R2T4 calculations must be done within 45
days from the date of determination of such withdrawal. The date of determination
must occur within two weeks from the last day of attendance.

All enrolled students are notified through ideal Beauty Academy’s catalog about the
withdrawal process and the student’s rights and responsibilities including how a
student reports the intent to withdraw and how the student begins the withdrawal
process.

Date of Determination
The faculty is required to take attendance and notify the Office of Academic Affairs if a student has stopped attending class without notice for 3 (three) consecutive scheduled class days. The Office of Academic Affairs monitors attendance of all enrolled students. It will contact the student via email, phone, and letter. If no response is received within the following week, the school will assume the student has unofficially withdrawn. The Office of Academic Affairs will determine the date of determination the student withdrew which would be no later than two weeks from the last day of attendance. However, if the student responds, the date of determination will be the date on which the student notifies the school via any means of communication. A student who wishes to withdraw from school for compelling personal reasons should notify the Director of Academic Affairs in writing stating the reasons for withdraw and whether or not the student intends to return at a later date to pursue their program of study.

ideal Beauty Academy grants Leave of Absence (LOA) as per regulation of Higher Education Reconciliation Act (HERA) 2006. Students who require a leave of absence from the program must do so in writing and be approved by the Director of Academic Affairs prior to the leave, if a student does not return from his/her LOA; the Office of Academic Affairs will notify the Financial Aid Administrator. The school will assume the student has unofficially withdrawn (date of determination) on the day the student was expected to return from his/her LOA. This begins the withdraw process. All documentations for a withdrawn student will be kept on student’s file in the Office of Academic Affairs.

Withdraw Date
The withdraw date will be the last date the student was in school.

Formula Calculation
ideal Beauty Academy’s Financial Aid Administrator is required by federal statute to
recalculate federal financial aid eligibility for students who withdraw, drop out, are
dismissed, or take a leave of absence prior to completing 60% of a payment period or
term. The federal Title IV financial aid programs must be recalculated in these
situations.

If a student leaves the institution prior to completing 60% of a payment period or term,
the financial aid administrator recalculates eligibility for Title IV funds. Recalculation is
based on the percentage of earned aid using the following Federal Return of Title IV
funds formula:

Percentage of payment period or term completed = hours scheduled to complete
divided by the total hours in the payment period or term. (Any break of five
days or more is not counted as part of the days in the term.) This percentage is also the
percentage of earned aid. Funds are returned to the appropriate federal program based
on the percentage of unearned aid using the following formula:
Multiply percent of aid earned times total aid disbursed or could have been disbursed.

Aid to be returned = (100% of the aid that could be disbursed minus the percentage of
earned aid) multiplied by the total amount of aid that could have been disbursed during
the payment period or term. Subtract aid earned from total aid disbursed.

If a student earned less aid than was disbursed, the institution would be required to
return a portion of the funds and the student would be required to return a portion of
the funds. Keep in mind that when Title IV funds are returned, the student borrower
may owe a debit balance to the institution.

If a student earned more aid than was disbursed to him/her, the institution would owe
the student a post-withdrawal disbursement which must be paid within 120 days of the
student’s withdrawal. The institution must return the amount of Title IV funds for
which it is responsible no later than 30 days after the date of the determination of the
date of the student’s withdrawal.

Refunds are allocated in the following order:
Unsubsidized Direct Stafford Loans (Other Plus Loans)
Subsidized Direct Stafford Loans
Direct Plus Loans
Federal Pell Grants for which a Return of funds is required
The following is a step by step process that is followed in all R2T4 calculations
Step 1: Determine the percentage of aid earned by calculating the percentage of the
scheduled period that the student completed.

Step 2: Determine the amount of earned aid by applying the percentage to the total
Title IV aid that was or could have been disbursed.

Step 3: Determine the amount of unearned aid by subtracting earned aid from
disbursed aid or determine the amount of a post-withdrawal disbursement
by subtracting disbursed aid from earned aid.

Step 4: If unearned funds must be returned, determine the schools and the
student’s share: or if a post-withdrawal disbursement is due, determine
the sources from which it will be funded.

Step 5: If unearned funds must be returned, allocate unearned aid to programs
from which student was funded; or if a post-withdrawal disbursement is
due, send student applicable notification.

Step 6: Return the institution’s share and any funds repaid by the student or refer
the student to ED; or make the post-withdrawal disbursement.

The department of Education provides return of Title IV funds worksheets in Volume 2,
Chapter 6 of the FSA Handbook. It has also developed software that automates the
calculation. This software can be downloaded via:
http://www.sfadownload.ed.gov/ReturnT4Funds.htm. These are used to calculate all
R2T4 calculations. A copy of the worksheet in the event of manual calculation and a
computer printout in the event of automated calculation is placed in student’s file for
records. The financial aid administrator performs all R2T4 calculations as it has all Title
IV award and institutional charges information which are required in the calculations.

Post-Withdrawal Disbursements
In the event a student is eligible for a post-withdrawal disbursement based on students
budget, awarded financial aid and Title IV funds and R2T4 calculations, a post-
withdrawal disbursement must be made only after the following conditions are met.

1. Student and parents were in most cases verbally notified of the availability of
post-withdrawal disbursements by the Financial Aid Administrator within one
week from the date of R2T4 calculation was performed.
2. Student and parents in most cases verbally notified the Financial Aid
Administrator within a reasonable time indicating their acceptance of available
post-withdrawal disbursement amounts. The reasonable time refers to allowing
sufficient time for school to process a post-withdrawal disbursement within the
deadline set by the Department of Education.
3. Student has outstanding institutional charges that are due and wants to pay off
those charges by applying his/her post-withdrawal disbursement.
4. Student/Parents completed all necessary paperwork related to such post-
withdrawal disbursement within a reasonable time.

The Financial Aid Administrator must track the notification and authorization to make
the disbursement and meet deadlines as prescribed by ED. A school must process Title
IV aid within 120 days from the last day of the enrollment period.
The post-withdrawal disbursement must be applied to outstanding institutional charges
before being paid directly to student. See sections 668.22(a)(4) of HEA 1965 and GEN-
04-03 for details on Post-Withdrawal Disbursement regulations.

PROCEDURE FOR CREDIT RECEIVED FOR COSMETOLOGY PROJECTS

Guests or models are always taken on a “first come, first served” basis. This also includes requests for specific students. To preserve and build our clientele we do not want to “punish” a new client by making them wait just because another client has been in here before and know whom they would like to do their work. If we did that repeatedly, we would discourage any new people from becoming our guests.

You must ask permission from a floor instructor before any work may be done on other students. Even if permission is granted, the floor instructor may have to ask you do stop the service to perform needed work on clients. This must be done so that we may preserve our valuable relationship with our clients so that you may complete all state required live work on clients.
FOR PROJECTS TO COUNT, THE STUDENTS WORK MUST MEET THE SCHOOL STANDARDS. example: Sanitation, time frame, payment for service, quality, and necessary paperwork.

In order to get credit for a project the following must occur:
1. The student assigned to the project must personally complete at least 90% of the entire project.
2. The finished results must be to salon standards (judged by staff.)
3. The time frame from beginning to end must be determined by the instructor.
4. All cleanup and sanitation rules must be observed.
5. All materials must be paid for that the student purchased.
6. Client/student must pay for the service.

*ideal Beauty Academy may change requirements on clients, mannequin, and students
without prior notice.

*Make sure you keep track of the dates and ticket numbers. You may need a spiral
notebook to help do this.

*We want all students to get credit for the work they do. You have a progress book and
daily progress sheets so you can keep track of your progress…this is to your advantage,
because we do not go back otherwise to check for progress that you do not have records
for. Make sure you have instructor’s initials in your progress book and daily progress
sheet.

Student business cards may allow a discount to a client who returns to you. The idea behind the use of these cards is to help you to learn how to build and retain clients. They should be given to a client AFTER they have paid for services as an incentive for them to return to you for their next services. Only one discount at a time will be allowed.

RESUME BREAKDOWN
PERSONAL INFORMATION
Your name, address, and telephone number enable an employer to contract you immediately. The employer may need to know some private facts about you, but this information must stay within the bounds of your state’s labor laws.

EDUCATION
Your education is a valuable tool for gaining employment. Your future employer will want to know about your past educational accomplishments and future plans.
HONORS, ACHIEVEMENTS, AND OUTSIDE INTERESTS
Honors, achievements, and outside interests can sometimes substitute for actual work experience. Your participation in sports, music, or other activities in school should be listed, along with any special honors you might have received. Serving as a homeroom officer, or team captain, making the honor roll, working on committees–all show a sense of responsibility and achievement. Activities such as orchestra, glee club, pep club, and performing arts club should be listed.
Your community activities should be listed in this section, also. Participation in organizations such as art guilds, the American Red Cross, church groups, concert associations, historical societies, hospital volunteer work, are important. An employer might have a personal interest in one of these areas, and you may be able to capitalize on this mutual interest.
WORK EXPERIENCE
You may or may not have had much actual work experience. In this section, include all paid or unpaid work experience. Work of any kind shows responsibility. Volunteer help may be classified as work experience. Examples of volunteer help include assisting in a school library or office, a charity office, or working in a hospital or home for the elderly.
SKILLS
Skills reflect the mastery of something. Skills that you have obtained in school or elsewhere are important for getting the job you want. An employer will carefully examine your skills to determine what you can do and where you could fit within the business. Your skills tell an employer why you should be hired over another person. Examples of skills are: bookkeeping – office machine operation – report writing – solving mathematical problems – woodworking – welding – cooking – sales ability – auto repair – electronic wiring – arts and crafts talent.
Skills are also reflected in two other areas: human relations and organization. Your ability to get along well with other people is essential to any company. In addition, if you are well organized during your interview, your prospective employer will conclude you would make an efficient, competent employee.

REFERENCES
A reference is someone who knows you, but who is not related to you. An employer may contact a reference to see what that person thinks of you. Be prepared to list several good references. Usually the name, business title (if any), address, occupation, and telephone number of the reference are required. Be sure to ask permission of those you plan to list. (Good references include a former employer, a teacher who knows you well, or friends who are well established in business.)

WHAT INTERVIEWERS LOOK FOR IN YOUR . . .
1. Thorough Preparation: This is the key to making first impressions work in your favor. Before you go for the interview you’ve obtained, look deep within yourself, be honest, weigh your own weaknesses (as only you know them) as well as your strengths.
2. Ask Yourself: If I were in the employer’s seat, would I pay someone with my background the salary I want and am asking? If your honest answer is “No”, lower your expectations at this point.
3. Dress for the Job You Want: If your aim is to work for a conservative bank, and that’s where you’re being interviewed, don’t wear flashy bow ties or slit skirts. The person interviewing you wants to see if you look, as well as speak and perform, as a serious business person is expected to look.
4. Do Your Homework: Find out about the company you’re asking to join. How large is the company, what it produces, its position in the market, which aspects of its operations fit your particular interests or talents; get whatever literature you can from the company’s information department; check the public library, financial reference books. Don’t be caught unfamiliar with a fact you should know.
5. Be Prepared: A short, well-organized outline of your past experience and future goals. At some point during most interviews, you will be asked to “say something about yourself”. This is no time to blush or stammer. Be prepared. You might even rehearse your brief speech before your family or friends.
6. Shortcomings: If you have an obvious shortcoming – poor grades in some subject or an earlier job that you left abruptly after only a few months – bring it up yourself and explain the circumstances. Don’t let the interviewer spring it on you. Take it for granted that the personnel director interviewing you has uncovered your faults as well as your superior qualifications. The message here is to disarm the interviewer and to pile up the credits on your side.
7. What Do You Think of the Interviewer? “It’s important to remember that what you think of the person interviewing you is every bit as important as what the interviewer thinks of you.” The interviewer was selected for this job because the company thinks this person represents it well. It you don’t like him – or her – then you probably would not like working for that particular company. And the wisest move is to stop right there——–
8. GO TO THE INTERVIEW BY YOURSELF. NO FRIENDS OR FAMILY IF YOU WANT TO BE HIRED.

QUESTIONS INTERVIEWERS MAY ASK

1. What are your future vocational plans?
2. In what type of position are you most interested?

WHAT TO EXPECT AT A JOB INTERVIEW
By Jim Gallagher
Scripps Howard News Service
Debbie Kettler was interviewing a college senior for a job at Mercantile Bank. The student had spent the summer working at another bank, so Kettler asked about the experience.
“How big is that bank?” asked Kettler. “Oh, about three floors,” said the student. End of interview.
Banks are measured by their asset size — generally many millions of dollars — not the size of their building. The story shows the biggest mistake new graduates make when heading into job interviews.
“Students don’t prepare. These days it’s prepare, prepare, prepare, prepare,” said Kettler.
Kettler, a former corporate recruiter, now sits on the other side of the table as director of placement at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. Her job is to help students find jobs.
To impress a recruiter, a student should start in the library. Study the company and its industry, she said. “If you’re interviewing with Pepsi, know that they own Frito Lay,” she said.
In a Northwestern University survey, corporate recruiters said their “single biggest turnoff” was an applicant’s ignorance of their company. Come prepared with at least five questions for the recruiter designed to show you know the company and have thought about its future, Kettler advises.
Preparation is getting even more important these days. Today’s graduates are competing against legions of laid-off workers for entry-level jobs. Recruiters routinely get 300 to 500 resumes for each low-level opening. With that much paper to wade through, a single typo will destine a resume for the circular file, he said. As a recruiter, Kettler often favored open-ended questions with no right or wrong answer. They were designed to plumb the quality of a student’s mind, the ability to communicate, ability to prepare and to think rationally about the future.
Expect questions such as: “Why did you get a 2.8 grade average? Why not a 3.5?” “Why should I hire you?” “Name three of your weaknesses.”
Kathy Bersett, a Washington University senior, remembers a question that stopped her cold on her first job interview. She’d mentioned that she’d worked part-time in a Subway sandwich shop. “Compare the profitability of Subway to that of McDonald’s,” the recruiter commanded.
Now, with one job offer in the bag and more than 20 interviews behind her, Bersett could handle a question like that without blinking. “The more you interview, the better you get,” she said.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN WEIGHING A NEW JOB
By Paula Ancona
Scripps Howard News Service
So you’ve found a new job. That’s great news in the middle of this stubborn economic slump. But you’ve got a nagging feeling that accepting the offer might be a mistake that the company might not be a very good place to work.
How can you tell whether you’ve got a good match or if you’ll wish you worked somewhere else in a few months? Look for an employer that:
*Allows and accepts spontaneous, informal conversation among employees. Encourages communication — both informal and work-related — between all levels of employees.
*Have established grievance procedures that employees follow and managers respect. Shows a lack of favoritism, bias, inequity, intimidation or abuse (example: has an employee bill of rights).
*Tolerates individual differences. For example, the company might cultivate a nurturing, family-like atmosphere, but also allows loners to do their jobs and go home without feeling pressured to join social activities.
*Designs jobs so employees can see the results of their work and feel they’re making meaningful contributions.
*Isn’t swayed by every new management fad, but integrates all of its policies and practices to treat employees well.
*Shares success with employees through stock ownership plans and profit sharing.
*Produces an employee newsletter that is by and for employees, not controlled and censored by management.
*Adjusts policies and practices to fit what seems to be important to employees (example: paternity leave, flexible scheduling, job-sharing, tuition reimbursement).
How can you uncover the true character of the company?
*Ask to meet the people you’d be working with. Ask them what management is like. What are the ups and downs of working in this department? What else do they like and dislike? What benefits have they received by working there?
*Gather information about the company’s pay and benefits from managers, personnel officials or other employees. How would your pay and benefits compare with other employees? With similar companies? What does this tell you about the company’s ability to pay and its commitment to job security and fairness?
*Hone your network of contacts outside the company to find and talk to former employees, industry analysts, competitors, customers, colleagues or acquaintances of the management team.
*Interview the person who is interviewing you. Why did the people who previously held this position leave? How successful were they? What is the company’s turnover rate? Its philosophy? Its biggest problems? Its growth plans?
Write out your questions ahead of time. Don’t allow the interview to end until you get answers. Note, too, what is not being said.

THIRTEEN TELEPHONE TURN-OFFS

Does that business phone keep ringing? Does it leave you with no time to talk to your friends? Here are thirteen ways to get rid of those business callers. Of course, your boss will probably get rid of you–but then you’ll really have time for yourself.

1. Do all you can to prevent the caller from learning if he has the correct number. Begin to talk before the receiver reaches your mouth and be sure to mumble. Never answer with a sparkling tone of voice. “Good morning. Paramount Precision Products.” Salutatory phrases like that show only friendliness. And remember: The more rapid-fire your response, the better your chances of convincing callers they have the wrong number.

2. Put everyone on “hold” immediately because you are “busy on another line”. About thirty seconds is enough to build up sufficient frustration. Reinforce it by placing the caller back on “hold” again after asking her what she wants. After that, each time you cut in, absent- mindedly repeat, “What was it you wanted again?”

3. Come on strong with an “okay-what’s-bothering-you” attitude. Practice will build a strong sense of annoyance in your voice. You will soon be able to convince callers in split seconds that you are busy with more important matters.

4. Act like you’ve never heard of people who call regularly. Ask the caller to spell his name every time. “What company are you with Mr. Wheedle?” is a very effective query if you have just talked to Wheedle the day before–especially if his name is really “Wheeler”. Let the message clearly filter through that you are uncertain whether the boss has ever heard of him either.

5. Throw in as much office jargon as you can. Abbreviate all you can and use plenty of snappy, compact phrases: “The specs on the DT-2 are always handled on a PNQ basis through the FRILL Department”. Or “J.J. is conferring with G.K., can C.D. help you? He is particularly good on ZAP systems without collimators”. Your own ZAP system will unload the people who don’t speak the same office language as yours. And explanations of these terms will fill in much of your expendable time–to boot.

6. Get the caller’s name wrong. This is a breeze with names like “Schlissilsnipper”. With a little adroit imagination, you’ll even be able to come up with some pretty ingenious mispronunciations of Brown, Smith, and Jones. Give these a few minutes of thought.

7. Hurry all callers to the hilt. Make them feel they have only fifteen seconds to state their case. “Okay, buster, hustle it, I haven’t got all day” will do wonders. But there is a danger: The caller may complain to the boss. Drive people just to the breaking point, but not beyond.

8. Do all you can to prevent the caller from talking to the person he wants. Switch him to the wrong department and blame it on the telephone equipment. Keep up the password game. “Can Mrs. Bilst help you instead?” “What about Patty in records? She might know something about if she’s available.” Create the feeling that an appointment is even necessary to talk to the janitor.

9. Scrupulously avoid giving any specific answers. Be pleasant; let your voice smile. Create the illusion you are sincerely trying to help. When you really get good at it, the caller will hang up satisfied only to realize he didn’t find out anything. What’s more, he’ll be too embarrassed to call back.

10. Do a lot of talking but little listening. Beat around the bush. Repeat. Explain at least three different ways. Practice on answers to questions like “How do I get to your office?” If the person makes it without getting lost, you haven’t really tried.

11. Take plenty of time to get information the caller asks for. Let her think you have gone to lunch. Leave the line open rather than on “hold” so the caller can hear office noise, especially if there is a lot of joking and laughing. The “out-to-lunch” system is miraculous especially with incoming long distance calls.

12. Correct the caller on details. Convince him that his facts are incorrect. Make him feel your company hasn’t made a mistake since 1932. “We have expendable time–to boot.

13. Bang the phone a good deal. Dropping the receiver on the desk is the best way to clear the caller’s auditory passages. But that’s only the beginning: click the line, shout across the office for information, and then slam the receiver down at the end of the conversation. Telephoners are a hardy breed, but most will get the message after listening to what sounds like war games.

These thirteen telephone tricks take practice to perfect. But try to perfect them quickly because oddly enough, most people who start to learn them rarely seem to stay on the job very long.
