My goal is to continuously gain experience in the retail and beauty industry. Through my experience in the professional world I saw business in many different settings. When I worked at Pelican Hill Boutique and Nordstroms it was challenging because the economy was greatly affected from 2008. I had to creatively think of strategies on how I would boost my sales. I did this by researching the brands I was selling and then I would bullet point the highlights of what each product had to offer. Nordstroms taught me how to think quick in a competitive environment while Pelican Hill Boutique taught me how to merchandise product. After assessing my experience and wants I think my retail math knowledge at FIDM and my retail environment experience will complement your team.
