Hello my lovelies,
I’m just pretty much going to jump right on in with this life update following common questions I get from friends/family members who just want to know what I am up to career wise. In college I majored in Fashion Merchandising. For those who don’t know what that means think of a business degree with an emphasis on the fashion industry. I had to learn every inch of the fashion production process from designing and predicting trends, buying, to being a store manager in a retail company.
Where do you work?
I currently work at The Buckle.
What do you do?
I work as a floor lead. My job is to help the store manager develop our team, run segments of the business in place of the assistant or store manager, visual merchandising, as well as product education. More specifically I am our denim manager for our store, so I’m also responsible for growing denim sales for the store.
Where do you want to end up with that job?
Well, the nice thing about working for a company like Buckle is that 1. They promote internally. And 2. They really push growth with their employees. With my degree and the direction I’m going I hope to become a store manager and then eventually either own my own brand or something like that on the side. Becoming a buyer is also an option. Overall, I’m still young and have plenty of time to figure out my endgame. Currently, i am grateful of where I am at the moment because of my relationship. It’s easier for me to relocate with my fiancé being in the military.
What is your favorite thing about your job?
To pin point ONE thing about what I love at Buckle is hard. I love that the company uses pictures from my blog, I love meeting new people and I love the company culture! Most of all I love being able to style those customers and having people leave with a whole new outfit making them feel confident.
