Retail Careers

Retail deals with selling goods and services to end users. Big stores, small shops, street stands, and online stores all make up the retail sector.

There are two sides to retail, the customer-facing sales side and the corporate side. If you’ve been in a store you’ve interacted with the former. Maybe you’ve even worked retail before. That’s one job path to take if it interests you; it can lead to a management career and possibly a job working in retail strategy and marketing.

You can also work in the corporate side of retail. This path has all the standard departments a large company has: marketing, advertising, design, technology, human resources, and finance. You might also consider working for an online retailer, particularly if you have a software development or customer service bent.

While working directly with customers usually doesn’t require a degree, working behind the scenes at a company usually does. You’ll need a degree in a relevant field and other skills relevant to the department you want to enter.
