When you're fresh out of college, it’s so easy to get discouraged when you can't find a job right off the bat. Even if you're not a new graduate, finding a job that’s a perfect fit for you (and helps you pay the bills) can definitely be a bit of a challenge. I know I've been there. On one hand, you may know exactly what you want to do, but you have no idea how to get to where you want to be. On the other hand, you may be open to several careers, but there are so many options that you just don't know where to get started.
If the latter is the case for you, why not consider ANN INC.? They are the corporate head for brands such as Ann Taylor, LOFT, and Lou & Grey Retailers.

What advice would I give to those looking to work in the fashion industry?
KNOW YOUR STUFF

CREATE YOUR OWN STYLE
I think all fashionistas have their own unique look. Embrace that on your journey into the fashion industry.
