The article presents the results of the study of ideas about the profession of short-term course graduates who have studied nail service in Moscow. We assumed that some of the ideas remain the same within six months of professional activity while the other change and become more practical. To ensure the integrity of the investigation in the structure of ideas about the profession we highlighted socio-economic, socio-psychological and technical aspects. According to these aspects we have developed a questionnaire and interviewed short-term course graduates (52 people, 16 to 67 years, female) twice: at the beginning of study and after six months. We have identified significant factors of profession ideas aspects and interpret them. It is shown that the dynamics of the ideas about the profession can be studied at the short-term course graduates. The practical results are useful to short-term course teachers for accurate pedagogical influence.
