#1 Career Tip from Robin West?
“Be humble and patient! Things do not happen over night and everyone needs to start somewhere. Getting your hands dirty, in as many areas as possible during internships, plus those first few months of a job, is going to be the best learning experience you ever have. People notice and appreciate that genuine effort/hard work over anything else.”
Join Robin and over 150+ attendees, speakers and recruiters for a full day of discussions, hands on workshops, networking and fun – all aimed to get you closer to the fashion job of your dreams. Meet the coolest creative and business execs from the most exciting companies in New York City, learn about the ins and outs of the fashion industry, and make valuable connections with peers and professionals.
