Retail Job Losses are hurting the Economy


The state of the Retail Industry is concerning to me but I don't agree with the statement "Like coal miners, retail workers don't typically have a set of skills that's easily transferable to another"

Is ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE.. I have worked in retail for many years, as a sales associate and in management.  A retail worker especially a Manager has to have a certain set of skills to be successful.

Beth Swinney post on linkedin was a great motivator and an eye opener.  10 Reasons Why Your Industry's Next Hire Should be a Retail Manager...

  1. Work Ethic
  2. Self Developers
  3. Resilience
  4. Ownership
  5. Salesmanship
  6. People Leadership
  7. Flexibility
  8. Teamwork and Collaboration
  9. Variety of Expertise
  10. Sense of Humor
The list can go on and on if you ask me...
