Experiences I'm Grateful For and Lessons Learned

  • Don't turn down an opportunity just because it's unpaid.
Working as the Associate Fashion Editor of a webzine was amazing because I got a chance to interview up and coming designers in the Columbus, Ohio area. This position also took me to Olympus Fashion Week in New York where I sat under the tents photographing and documenting the shows and hanging out in the press room with other fashion editors and writers!
  • Enter interviews better informed about a companies promotion from within policy.

In the past I have held the standard Sales Associate position and even have been Assistant Manager. I don't want to start all over again. I worked for a dept store whose Merchandising Corporate Office was right across the street, only to later find out the worse way to try to get to the corporate office was through the store. Less than 1% of the associates actually saw outside those walls, especially if you worked in the Juniors (read "low-priority") Dept.

  • Look past the people I work with and look at the overall company structure.
I have stayed at companies that were not "connectors" to my Freeway for long periods of time just because I enjoyed my co-workers. I have also let a position go unappreciated just because I did not like certain employees and that was my focus, rather than the doors that were opening because of that position and how my employer/company structure could get me to my Point B.
