Lauren Gutting


I am a recent college graduate from University of Wisconsin-Stout, aspiring to enter the retail industry to utilize my education and experience, and furthermore, grow with a company I am passionate about. I face a future of many challenges I am eager to overcome, and with my Bachelors Degree in Retail Merchandising and Management, I am confident I will succeed. I have worked for Victoria’s Secret for 4 years, where my work ethic and skills are always heightened and I have had many positive opportunities to continue growing in a fast-paced business environment. I also had a great opportunity to intern at The Niche Boutique at University of Wisconsin-Stout, where I was able to take my education to a hands-on experience as a Category Buyer/Planner and Assistant Store Manager. During both jobs, I have been acknowledged for exceptional leadership and interpersonal skills, as well as analytical and strategic thinking skills. I have found several areas of interest I would be happy to seek employment in: Merchandising, Store Planning, Product Development, and Visual Merchandising. I believe I have the necessary skills, personality, team-player attitude, and drive to become an effective and efficient asset to a company. I know what it takes to build a professional relationship, negotiate with vendors, analyze business reports and implement effective action plans to deliver results. Since I was a young girl, I have absolutely loved to sew. I enrolled in my first sewing class in 4th grade, and have sewn many garments and home textiles since, including a prom dress. As I decided to pursue Retail instead of Design, I hold textile development close to my heart and know my knowledge of quality, construction, materials and stitches will come to use. I am constantly learning, and it excites me to know I will broaden my knowledge and experience of the retail industry during my life. Seeking an over-achiever with an exceptional work ethic?
