DESCRIPTION

A must for any fashion student, this book provides an in-depth review of the wide-ranging career options available in the fashion and textile industry, profiling over fifty careers that span the creative, technical, retail and media fields. Clearly defined job profiles are accompanied by interviews with people employed in the industry. Breaking into the fashion industry can be very difficult for newly-qualified graduates and young designers thanks to the high number of students graduating each year and the competitive nature of the business. This book offers practical advice on all aspects of the job-hunting process with guidance on how to succeed. There are suggestions for organizing a job search, with template charts and tables provided to help, and advice on how to secure work placements/internships and develop strong networking skills. A directory of international professional trade associations provides an excellent resource for establishing new contacts, general networking, and also offers information on conferences and trade events, and employment opportunities.
