job title : Personal Shopper /Style consultant/ image consultant
Shopping is a billion dollar industry and an absolute necessity in everyday life. Think about it. You shop all the time. Maybe you shop for new hip clothes, a new snowboard, or a special gadget for your father’s Christmas present. Shopping is part of life, but it can also be a career – if you’re a personal shopper.
You may wonder what a personal shopper actually does. Well, it all depends on where you work. Many personal shoppers are self-employed, but others work for large corporations or department stores.
You may find yourself working for busy families, super-rich celebrities, senior citizens, department stores, corporate executives, image consulting agencies, or event planning companies. The market you work for, will dictate where you shop.
The irony is that there is demand for quality image consultants has risen to a new high as new markets have emerged. The competition is fierce as a plethora of highly qualified candidates seek new jobs and need to differentiate themselves from the competition. Personal and professional development skills become critical in such a climate. The definition of image consulting has broadened beyond “makeovers” to include behavior, civility and etiquette, body language, interview skills, communication, presentation, and personal branding.
so is like developing your own brand and image to the society.
