Fashion Career Tipsheet October 2010


For this edition of the tipsheet we decided to ditch the terms “gig” and “job” in favor of what we should all be in pursuit of: a Career. After you’ve done your internships, low-paying hourly gigs, and hard knock assistantships, it’s time to turn your attention to snagging a spot with some major players. It’s not for everyone (…ahem), but landing a job with a high-profile company can be a very satisfying coup for the serious fashion industry worker. Good Luck! Photo via

    Talking to someone who’s trained to help you discover new opportunities will assist you in taking a much more objective bird’s eye view of your scenario. A trained careers advisor or coach will help you spot opportunities you might not have thought of by yourself.
