Every city in the world has a bustling shopping district where you can almost feel the excitement around fashion and premium brands.

Have you ever pictured yourself working for one of the biggest global retailers? Well, this doesn’t have to be a dream anymore.

On Saturday, September 28 Metropolis at Metrotown is hosting its 12th annual retail job fair where top brands will be looking to fill more than 600 part-time and full-time entry-level or managerial positions. This could be the right time to make a much-needed transition in your professional life.

The holiday season is one of the most fast-paced times of the year to work in retail and hone your sales, communication, and organizational skills. You’ll also have the flexibility to shop fall fashion trends on your lunch break (usually with an employee discount), which a real game-changer.

Make sure to dress your best and be ready to show off your stellar personality as some retailers may hold job interviews on the spot. Why not try a test run and have your friend do a mock interview with you before you go? It might help you feel more confident on the big day.

Bring a lot of rĂ©sumĂ©s along with you, and draw up a list of the retailers you’d like to speak with. You could be working for your dream brand sooner than you think!
