Ángel Lobo, Director of Retail HR at Desigual, gave an interesting online session entitled “Applicant profiles sought by fashion companies”. ISEM Fashion Business School organized this webinar with the aim of helping all those who want to work in fashion and, in the words of the speaker, “thus shed some light on the job opportunities that can be found in this sector.”
“In a fashion firm you can find many different positions”, highlighted Ángel Lobo and specified that “not only those related to design or the store, but there is a large amount of positions typical of the fashion sector, such as buyer or product manager, and other more generic ones also present in companies in other sectors: HR, marketing… ”. In this sense, Lobo paid special attention when noting that “no two fashion companies have the same organizational structure.”
At the end of the webinar, the Desigual manager revealed which positions are currently most in demand in the sector and pointed out the need to train and specialize in the fashion sector. In addition, when faced with a job offer, he advised the more than 150 attendees: “Designing a good CV, highlighting the points most in line with that position, is key; as well as being natural in interviews ”.
