Explore a Career in the Fashion Industry

If you enjoy fashion as much as we think you do, it may be a good idea for you to investigate opportunities to work in the apparel industry.  OK, it is understood that it is very possible that you already work in our fabulous industry.  So, I better break this post up into two distinct parts.   Section one, for those new to the industry.  Section two, for those of you that are already entrenched.

New to the Fashion Industry
  1. Step one is to learn about the fashion industry.  Obviously, you will need to know what you are potentially getting yourself into.
  2. Step two, attend a college or university to further educate yourself in regard to a specific aspect of business.  Or get a well-balanced but “industry specific” education at a school that specializes in fashion or textiles.
  3. Step three, prepare a resume.
  4. Step four, do all of the following:
  • Attend a job fair.
  • Meet with an employment agency.
  • Research job opportunities online.
Here is one more important tip, which is not technically a step that I official recommend, but it may be helpful.  Make a mental decision regarding your thoughts on internships. It is debatable if they are a good idea or not.  You will need to know if you are willing to take an internship to get your foot in the door or if you want to be patient and go for full employment from the start.

Experienced Fashion Industry Professional

If you are not new to the business, you probably already know most of the ins and outs required to be successful.  However, it is important to remind yourself on occasion that it is always a good time to discover new opportunities.  For those of us that do not own our own business, staying in one position for too long will cause you to stagnate.  Yes, it is true.  Your mind, your inspiration, and your opportunities for advancement may become set to simmer if you stay with one company for too long.  With that said, this is obviously NOT always the case.  Sometimes, the longer you stay at a company the better off your career.  My suggestion to move job hop every few years is a generality (good for many people, but not all people).  You will need to review your own career path to make a proper determination.

You may want to stop by the employment section here on Apparel Search to evaluate resources and your career options.

By the way, you can search for fashion industry employment at the Fashion Job Search website.
