HBCU CONNECT!

Burlington, DICK's Sporting Goods, and Kohl's are BACK taking opportunity on the road (virtually). Last Fall we asked if you had ever considered how your degree could land you a job in the booming retail industry, and so many of you joined us to find out! We are so excited to be back this Spring to give you even more chances to discover what your future in retail could look like.

This Spring we will feature three stops, three opportunities to learn more about the retail industry, network with your peers, and have your questions answered by industry professionals. We will kick-off with our Careers in Retail Spotlight series on Tuesday, February 2nd. During this stop, you will have the chance to hear more about careers in Product Development, Design, and Sourcing directly from the experts themselves!

Want a sneak peek of what's to come? Check out the roadshow series stops below:

Careers in Retail Spotlight Series: Product Development, Design, and Sourcing
Tuesday, February 2nd
@ 6:00pm EST

Learn more about how a product comes to life! Our partners in Product Development, Sourcing, and Design will walk you through how a simple idea can turn into a powerhouse brand. From discovering the latest trends to sourcing fabrics, drawing up concepts, costing the goods, and so much more, you'll walk away with a better understanding of just how much work can go into that shirt you're wearing.

Careers in Retail Spotlight Series: Planning, Operations, and Visual Merchandising
Tuesday, March 2nd
@ 6:00pm EST

Once we understand how the merchandise is created, we must understand how it gets to our customers. During this live session you will hear from our partners in Planning, Operations, and Visual Merchandising. They will describe how merchandise is selected for each store, how it gets there, and eventually how we style it to entice the customer!

Crossing the Finish Line: Wrap up from your favorite Recruiters
Tuesday, March 23rd
@ 6:00pm EST

Our final stop will be a wrap up session with your favorite recruiters from Burlington, DICK's Sporting Goods, and Kohl's. Join us for one last session to ask any final questions about the industry, your job search, interviewing, etc. We can't wait to see you there!
