Format: Paperback
This book was incredibly useful in my search for a career path in the world of fashion and retail.
It is up-to-date and spells out
What the job is
Qualities a successful professional would have
College majors companies prefer to hire
Skills you need
Starting Salaries
Task descriptions of daily projects
It was really helpful to have access to so many job types at one time so paging through it I could bookmark potential jobs from Product Management to Fashion Photographer to Visual Merchandiser. It covers the full spectrum and is a great resource for anyone still in college looking for their dream job! Sometimes its hard to match your skill set with a real job title and description but this book makes it so easy!! I definately recomend it to anyone in the design, fashion, or arts fields.

for anyone who's considered the wonderful world of fashion as a career, this book has a great range of the specific job titles, challenges, duties and typical progression to help you narrow down what job you want. the book is divided by categories that match the stages of development, ie. forecasting trends, manufacturing textiles, fashion sales (ie. retail) and merchandise marketing and related fields such as spa/wellness and interiors.

This book is written by a professor I am currently taking class with at MSU. I find the book very insightful, and knowledgable about the industry, with graphic descriptions of the jobs and positions.

This is a required textbook for one of my Fashion Classes/Lectures in my college. As long as I had gotten it, I was fine, and I got it in time, so I was good. Point of me getting it from Amazon was that it was cheaper than getting it from my college's Bookstore. Nothing bad about this :)

I love how the entire book is basically a rundown of probably all of the careers offered in the fashion world! It gives you the Job, a detailed Job Description, the Qualifications, the Experience/Education needed, and sometimes even the challenges these certain people might face. I will definitely be keeping and using this in the near future, for when I get one of these positions, and when I also have to know about the other positions that would be working around me.

My daughter was nervous about ordering this for her class but was very happy when it arrived! Excellent condition and great packaging for shipping. Much cheaper than what school was charging. Very happy with this purchase!
