“Pivot Point students come from all walks of life: recent high school graduates, college grads who see better job prospects in our industry and career changers looking to start over due to the tough economy,” said Sara Pirok, vice president of franchise development and international academies. “What binds our students together is their determination and talent. We thought that, with the new year coming up and people beginning to think about fresh starts, a makeover contest would be the perfect way to find original talent to welcome into our programs.”
