I have a question for you!
What was your first job out of college? (did you work through college or have an internship?)
I have been applying to jobs since April, and like many recent grads I’m having a pretty rough time. I feel some of the job descriptions are vague, and I’m often on the fence if I’m qualified. My particular area is in fashion merchandising.
GAH this market is a killer. 🙁

a lot of my friends from school got degrees in fashion merchandising and got jobs at the local kohls hq.

a very close friend just graduated, and she’s releasing her own line. she went to everyone she thought could help to get the funds, and in the meantime she’s a nanny.

Are you looking in NYC? Most of my friends who work in fashion had several internships and worked in retail to start.

I have two close family members in fashion, and they both did internships before being hired on. One did internships in both Toronto as well as NYC, before being offered a position in Montreal, and now lives/works in LA. Flexibility is key, and who you know is really important.

At this point in time I am looking in Buffalo, NY – which doesn’t exactly have a fashion reputation ha. It’s possible that most entry-level positions are “trainees” but I’m trying to get away with whatever I can in the market here :/ I was just curious to hear aboout others’ titles in the industry 🙂 so thanks for your feedback so far!
