Guide to Fashion Career Planning provides an in-depth overview of preparing for a career in the fashion industry - across many job possibilities, skill sets, and career interests - and guides the readers through professional preparation from goal setting all the way to finding the first job. While many resources exist for topics such as career paths or internships, this book presents a seamless and comprehensive approach to everything needed for professional and career development covering resume writing, interviewing, job search strategies, internships and portfolios for fashion design, merchandising and retail careers.
