I was responsible for...
Sales associate, flat lays for social media, floor displays, Store-to-Door creator, buying for Fall of 2017

I accomplished...
Creating the Store-to-Door service we offered. We put together bags full of outfits and hand delivered them to the customer's door step. We left them with the bags for a few days and then picked up the items they did not learn.

I learned...
I loved learning the buying process. It was eye opening to see how my supervisor made her decisions.

Advice for others...
