The retails industry has taken a real hit over the last few years with more people changing the way in which they shop, resulting in store closures and diminishing high streets. However, a career in retail has never been so exciting and with the advance in technology and the global trade for stock taking place a career in this industry could be a smart move.
To create awareness of such careers we welcomed in IGD who spoke with year 9 students about the many opportunities that there are in industry. In addition they met with 2 employers both with retail background who were able to share their experiences and give advice.
As a result of the workshop students not only had more knowledge about retail but also had further experience in meeting employers as well learning of the employability skills that the various jobs will give you.
