Graduate Career Day
On Thursday 6th July FashionCapital hosted a career day for recent graduates.
Welcoming graduates from London College of Fashion, London College of Communications, University of Westminster and Kingston University, we held a two-hour open day to provide advice and career insight for fashion graduates that want to either set up their own label or secure a job in the industry.
Our very own marketing consultant Tracey Parks-Taylor was on hand to discuss the basics of setting up a fashion label as well as inform the group about the numerous seminars we will be hosting later on the year.
In addition, Gabby Fleming, Founder and Director of a talent and career specialist business that works with organisations and individuals to accelerate talent, was on hand to offer advice on CV’s, interview techniques, career strategy and more!
