On The Job Hunt: Could I Become A Fashion Buyer?

On The Job Hunt: Could I Become A Fashion Buyer?

SavvySugar Community member littlemissjobhunter is part of the sobering statistic: nearly one out of 10 Americans are out of work. Join her in the trials and tribulations of a job-seeker — a journey that'll maybe help you understand that the unemployment figures aren't just a number.

In her latest post, she reveals how she gave up on a career in fashion for a "real" job, only to risk it all to go back to square one to chase her dream job again.

As a girl who was born and raised on the east coast, attended college in the Midwest, with origins in Asia, and currently residing on the west coast, my own sense of style draws influence from the many facets of my own upbringing and experience. I use my own wardrobe as a means to express myself, which can be primarily attributed to my background. As a young girl, high-end fashion advertisements stuck with me and designer names were easier to memorize than any SAT flash card. While most teenagers watched the current melodramatic offering on the WB, I enjoyed watching NY Metro Channel’s Fashion segment with coverage of the latest runway shows to general trend forecasts for the upcoming season.  I told myself one day I will be sitting in attendance at one of these shows as a buyer, clipboard and pencil in hand.
