If you really want to be a hot commodity within the Fashion Design or Fashion & Retail Management world, you'll need a solid resume to accompany your college degree. You need a work history that demonstrates your commitment to the industry. We recommend you pursue internships while you are in school and possibly executive training programs upon graduation.
Just to help you get creative in your internship search, we've posted some ideas here. Keep in mind that most of these programs are VERY selective, and they require that you apply well in advance. Some of these programs will also require professional references and a strong GPA. Some of these are local, some are not. Read carefully!
