Career-choices in retail

"What do you want to do?" is a terrible question. Not because I don't have the answer, but because it's always followed by "How are you going to do it?" It forces you to be honest and practical. Does "winging it" count?


No, probably not…

Knowing what you want to do is the greatest career-and life-related joy that can exist. It gives you a sense of purpose, and sometimes, not always, it gives you the answer to the question of how.

Luckily, the American National Retail Federation provides part of the answer, at least if you want to work in retail. I have decide to phrase it in a "Do you care about.." format, because that makes more sense to me than anything else, followed by the appropriate area in retail, and some sample job-descriptions. If anything, it should be of great help when answering human-resource questions.
