Last week the Fashion Careers Clinic met two confident young women who wanted to find work in the fashion industry...
They had already forged careers in other industries but had always harboured a love for fashion and felt that now was the time that they couldn't wait any longer to get started!
FCC looked at both of their CV's and saw that they had lots of transferable skills that could be used in non design roles in the fashion industry. Many people forget that there are thousands of jobs other than design that include lots of contact with the product and the customer!
After providing advice about how their CV's could become more fashion focused, FCC worked with each candidate to find the best ways to increase their industry knowledge and awareness and also looked at the jobs that might be suitable for them.
Customer services, wholesale sales, showroom sales, marketing and brand management are just a small selection of the roles that are available to people with strong transferable skills. The industry is not all doom and gloom and there are jobs for people who are proactive and flexible...If you have another language that is also a bonus!
If you are looking for a career in fashion but don't know where to start then contact the Fashion Careers Clinic to arrange a careers one to one: firstname.lastname@example.org
It might be easier than you think...
