Shop­ping is my forte

Girlfriend - - GF GOALS -

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.”

Con­vinced this is for you? Ap­ply on­line! A lot of com­pa­nies use e-re­cruit­ment plat­forms –you can do it from home in your PJs!

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