If you’re feeling a little stuck in a rut, the chances are you have been in your current job for too long. Perhaps you can do your role with your hands tied behind your back and blindfolded. Maybe your job doesn’t challenge you anymore. Or perhaps you simply no longer have any desire to work out the best way to keep SMEs tax efficient anymore. Whatever it is making you feel disheartened in your current position needs addressing. In the twenty first century it’s common for people to have more than one career in their lifetime, and you might be the same. If you have a burning desire for something more creative, it might be time to utilize your fashionista credentials within your career. Read onto find out how.
If your ideal day involves shopping and clothes, you could be the perfect candidate to become a personal shopper. You’ll need to apply your knowledge of fashion to all different sorts of people. Forget your own style and try to put yourself in your client’s shoes. If they are a certain body shape, you will need to know the attire that will flatter their bumps and lumps. Being a personal shopper means inspiring body confidence within those individuals who struggle to find clothes that fit them well. Many people need a professional to help them feel good about themselves. If you are caring and want to help people feel their best, then you could become a personal shopper.
Fashion extends beyond the catwalk. If you are artistic and love nothing more than trying out the latest concealer, eye shadow or contouring tool, then you might be keen on a career in beauty. Consider upskilling by taking an online eyelash extension course to give you the necessary qualifications to find your first job in a beauty salon or clinic. From here, you can learn the skills of the beauty trade, before possibly opening your own salon or working for yourself from home. You might choose to forego the practical nature of the job and become a blogger instead. Work on some Youtube videos, start showing off your makeup techniques and generate a following online. From here, you can start making money from affiliate links or private bookings.
If you really have an eye for all things haute couture, you could try to forge a career as a fashion designer. If you upcycle your own clothes, you are something of a whizz with a sewing machine, or you are forever scouring the catwalk for fashion trend ideas, then you might have an eye for designing garments for others. You could choose to try and impress fashion houses with your portfolio of ideas to try and get your first job. Competition for these sorts of rolls is fierce, but that shouldn’t put you off. Offer to undertake some unpaid work experience to get your foot through the door, and this could be the first step in your brand new career.
If you adore fashion and you’re sick of your current job, don’t spend your days dreaming of a new job doing what you love; be proactive and strive for a career within the fashion world.
