Shopping is my forte
If you’re all about fashion and beauty, working in a store you love could be your introduction to a career in the industry. Often people who start at the bottom of the retail chain, work their way up to be managers or employed at a head office level. Goals!
But first up, you want to look for what’s generally advertised as a Christmas casual position. The deal here is that the boss is hiring you specifically to help with the busy holiday period (think cray-cray crowds and lines for days) and it’s likely there’ll be a bunch of other newbies starting fresh too (yay, work friends).
If you think you have to dress like Gigi to work in a cool clothes store, think again. It’s more about showing off your personal style, says Recruitment Coordinator at Glue Store, Danielle Chirio.
“We often hold group interviews, so it’s important to stand out from the crowd,” she says. “Individuality is something we’re always looking out for. There isn’t a certain ‘look’ we go for, more so it’s about finding team members who own their look and come across comfortable and confident.”
Of course, the perks are also part of the appeal – think employee discounts, team training nights and epic end of year parties.
“Most importantly, if you work hard there’s always the opportunity to secure a permanent position after Christmas.”

When someone has a bubbly personality we see that as translating into being good at customer service.
