Upon graduation this December, I will have acquired a Bachelor’s Degree in Apparel Merchandise and a minor in Business from the Kelley School of Business. Through my five years of retail experience in the stores and my recent corporate internship, I have gained the necessary skills it takes to thrive in the retail industry. I have had much experience working directly with the consumer, learning about their habits, their wants and their needs. I also have experience working in a corporate setting, managing retail events. I was able to partake in product selection, allocations, setting marketing strategies, signage creation and off-shelf merchandising. <br /> I truly think all of my experiences and acquired skills through both work and school can help me propel a company to the next level. <br />
