April 11, 2024 The Best Fashion Jobs to Kick Off Your Career

Fashion jobs cover a lot of territory, from designers to corporate buyers to marketers. When you’re just getting started though, most people dip their toe in the fashion industry by working in a retail store. We agree that this is the best place to get started!

Why is that? In a retail setting, you learn a lot. You get trained on the basics of customer service, how to merchandise clothing on the sales floor, and which fashion styles and silhouettes are most popular. Additionally, in buy-sell-trade retail settings like Crossroads, you also learn the art of fashion buying!

If you didn’t know, fashion buying is a next-level skill. For example, Crossroads buyers are formally trained on how to buy clothing from the public to stock our store locations. They also stay on top of the latest trends and labels so they can select the most popular pieces for their store.

Best of all, they can see how well their selections sell, gaining fashion insights and experience along the way.
