(PRWEB) January 16, 2008
Often, the hardest part about the fashion industry is getting your first job--but that just got easier. Fashion job seekers and employers can find each other easily on the newly redesigned job board at FashionCareerCenter.com, a helpful career resource for fashion schools, job applicants, and employers (http://www.fashioncareercenter.com/jobs).
The wild popularity of fashion design shows on reality TV attracts many people to fashion careers. Low turnover and the scarcity of new positions, however, mean that fashion designers need every advantage in their job search. Nearly a quarter of all fashion designers are self-employed, but the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) finds that fashion designers on a salary earn more and have a more stable income than freelancers.
"Helping fashion designers find great jobs--that's the challenge we set for ourselves," says FashionCareerCenter.com producer Doug Jones. "If you're a trained, talented fashion designer, getting your resume in front of the right people is the hardest step. Our redesigned job board makes it easier."
At FashionCareerCenter.com, job seekers can post their resumes and even apply to specific jobs directly through the site. Currently employed designers can protect their identities while seeking new positions. Job hunters receive automatic notification of the latest listings and can also search a huge database of employers. Employers and recruiters can post positions on the job board and scrutinize posted resumes.
The site also offers fashion career advice and fashion school listings. BLS reports that most fashion employers seek designers with a two- or four-year degree. FashionCareerCenter.com offers easy access to dozens of traditional and online fashion design schools in the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom.
FashionCareerCenter.com is an invaluable career resource for fashion students, professionals and employers. In addition to its newly revamped job board, the site offers comprehensive fashion school listings and fashion career advice.
