Ask Megan: Fashion Career Advice

Over the last several months, a lot of you have reached out asking for advice on the best way to seek a career in fashion. Most, if not all replies are to encourage you to find out what you want to do and what interests you the most. Do you want to be a stylist, a buyer, writer or go from a more marketing stand point? Interning is the key to helping you find that out, it gives you the chance to really pay attention to how things work, and how things are made. In most cases interns wear many hats so that helps you pick out what you do and don't like with each job. Also, do your research and always be willing to learn. Know what's trending online, keep up on street style, and even start a blog {tumblr or pinterest} of your own. It helps potential employers gauge your interests and style to determine if you're a good fit. Creativity and confidence is always key.

A great place to start that search, who also happened to recently win the 2014 Gallup Great Workplace Award {the only fashion retailer to receive it}, is ANN INC. Who is responsible for brands we know and love such as Ann Taylor, LOFT and Lou & Grey.
