I'm sure some of you have experience working in clothing stores, general retail. I'm very tired of my current line of work (phone monkey at large insurance company) and I know a pretty decent amount (I am dwarfed by some among you, but I know a lot more than most salesmen I encounter at stores here) about clothes. At this point, I am young enough to consider a job in general retail, preferably at a relatively upscale store (which translates to Nordstrom, in the immediate vicinity). I have never really worked in retail before. How do you break into it? Are there certain things that employers in that sector look for, particularly as it pertains to clothing retail? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
