The Retail sector is a particularly great for those who love meeting and working with different people. With fantastic career growth opportunities, many people start in-store and quickly work their way up to management and eventually Head Office. If you do not wish to progress, the skills you will learn in retail are invaluable to most professions. You’ll learn skills such as sales, product knowledge, customer service, handling merchandise, and preventing theft and loss. You’ll need to be a team player if you’re interested in retail, as you will not only be frequently interacting with customers and suppliers, but also working with or managing your own teams of staff.
