• Most jobs do not require formal education; many people get their first jobs in this industry.
• Clothing, accessory, and general merchandise stores offer many part-time jobs, but earnings are relatively low.
• Many workers in this large industry transfer to other occupations or leave the labor force, so there will be numerous job openings.

Highly recommended to any harried Retail Jobs jobseeker, you'll plan on using it again in your efforts to move up in the world for an even better position down the road.

With this book, you'll be able to revise your application into a much stronger document, be much better prepared and a step ahead for the next opportunity.
