Interning at The Rare Pair this summer has given me a ton of insight into all of the different facets of retail.

I have loved coming with to buying meetings and attending clothing shows, and I also enjoyed having the opportunity to assist with the visual merchandising in the store. These experiences have allowed me to learn about all of the different opportunities and career paths there are within my area of study. It was also valuable to see concepts from my classes being applied in real situations.
