In A Career in Luxury Retail
My career in Luxury Retail has been rewarding, emotionally and financially. Like most things in life, success does not come easy. No matter what industry you work in, there will be pros and cons. Finding that balance between the two is critical for a healthy state of mind. Take a look at what is want out of a career, your current skill set, and how you can accomplish your career goal(s). According to the Luxury Institue, top-perform retailers can earn $60,000 to $100,000 within 3-5 years. Top associates who built a client base can make $200,000+ per year in 5-7 years. A top-tier Luxury Retail Flagship Store Manager in New York today can receive a package of $250,000, and an average store manager can earn $80,000. Those are not far off, from my own experience. Proximity, on the other hand, is crucial to a successful career in Luxury Retail. Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, and New York boast a more sustainable path than other markets. Furthermore, your mobility (domestic and international) may help you reach further professionally. A career in luxury retail requires sales management, operations, merchandising, and service skills. Starting in one position may lead to various jobs such as visual merchandising roles, after-sales department, supply chain and distribution network, human resources department, and more. Creating a LinkedIn profile is highly recommended if you haven't already. Begin developing your online professional presence and a social network of like-minded people. Do you have any advice for someone interested in pursuing a job within the industry or looking into applying to any one particular company that may be hiring at the moment?

In A Career in Luxury Retail
I am a dedicated and driven leader with experience in the luxury retail industry. I have been privileged to work for Hermès of Paris, Gucci, and other brands as a team member. My passion is helping others develop their skills to pursue their dreams of becoming great leaders themselves. At Aldo Shoes, my first job in the industry, I was quickly promoted from Key Holder to Assistant Store Manager within my first six months. Currently, I am an MBA candidate at Pepperdine University. I chose to concentrate on Leadership and Managing Organizational Change to expand my managerial skills as a leader in luxury retail. What was your first retail job?
