The best way to move in a career change

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Q: I have been in sports retail since I was 16, From sales assistant right through to a trainee manager position. What would you consider the best way to move in a career change?

A: What career change do you want? It is not very clear from your question 

Here are some possibilities: Stay in Sports retail in which you can move up the ladder. You need to identify the required skills to make this move either in your current organization or a competitor/equivalent organization with whom you would like to work. 

Stay in some other retail area in which case you have to decide what area appeals to you. This could be done by googling the terms retail organizations etc. 

Alternatively you can consult with Mandate who are a union associated with retail sales staff (www.mandate.ie).
