Title: Fashion Stylist
Length of Employment: 3 yrs
Big Life Wins:
About 3 years ago, I was promoted to the position of Fashion Stylist with a major Canadian fashion-forward department store where I currently lead a team that styles outfits and creates visual displays in a large 100,000 square foot brick and mortar store. Prior to this, I was in sales in suiting and luxury goods for almost 2 years. And for the past 6 years, I have been a part-time actor and have starred in educational videos and act in live simulations in educational settings. I have also done background work on various films. I have a BA with Honours in Philosophy with a CGPA of 9.5/12 from a Canadian University. In undergrad, I received an A+ in a Financial Accounting course. In 2020, I took a Microeconomics course at my local college and received an A+ and I am currently taking Statistics at my Alma Mater.
Post MBA Goal:
In the short-term I would like to gain employment as a tech PMM and I would then like to take the skills/experience and bring it back to the fashion retail industry in a corporate management/strategy role.
