Posted By: Will Moss on January 25, 2021 |
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: Planning, Operations, and Visual Merchandising

Once we understand how the merchandise is created, we must understand how it gets to our customers.
