Outlook for Fashion Merchandising Careers

Fashion merchandising careers, like other fashion careers, traditionally attract a large number of people—so there are often more applicants than jobs.

However, if you’re serious about fashion merchandising careers, don’t let that discourage you.

Do everything you can to move your résumé to the top of the pile. Be willing to take an internship or entry level position. Since people tend to covet these careers and the job growth statistics are below average due to the limited number of positions, just getting your foot in the door may prove to be fortuitous.

Besides your ambition and drive, getting an education and basic work experience may also make you a more appealing job candidate.
