Hey all,

New to the message board but have been doing quite a bit of poking around. Currently a junior in college studying business management.

I'm getting to a point in my college career where I'm feeling compelled to find a direction after school. My passion is men's clothing but I don't have the technical skills to draw/design. I'm also a strong writer and write for my university's newspaper.

What kind of careers are out there in men's clothing? Is there much outside of NYC? My mother and I have bounced around the idea of working with the corporate side of a clothing company and doing sales or buying, etc. I've also thought about writing for a men's clothing magazine, but didn't go to Mizzou or N'Western to get a degree in magazine journalism to do so.

Just looking for some ideas/and or direction-thanks!

I'm a head hunter and placed a territory rep for Clarks in Western Canada. If Clarks hires territory reps in Western Canada, there are a lot of brands that do the same in the US. That would technically be considered a sales role. More specifically, it's an account management role where you work with retailers to promote your product, increase sales, etc.
