Everybody thinks that retail is just working in a store as a sales associate, but that isn’t necessarily true—the retail industry offers a wide range of careers and there is a ton of work that goes on “behind the scenes” in various departments across the country and worldwide.
Careers in retail can be related to:
- Human resources
- and many more!
Although students tend to think of retail as folding shirts, pouring coffee or stocking shelves for an hourly wage (and those opportunities can be great experience to prepare you for future careers in retail!), there is a whole other world within the retail industry that offers meaningful careers with amazing training and competitive pay, among other great benefits.
