Teaching Fashion: How do I find a job? Part 2

A few weeks back I talked about job search strategies and the in-class assignment I used to introduce students to fashion related job search websites. I said I would post the list of sites they discovered and here it is today. They found 24 job posting sites with a fashion focus. None of these sites are single employer sites and they all include positions around the county (and a few sites from the UK thanks to a student from London). They researched 1/2 the sites for types of jobs and access information. That is also included below. Share these with your students – use them yourself! The right job is out there for everybody and I hope this information helps students find what they’re looking for.
