Going on placement-HOT or NOT?

I would like to mention from the beginning that I am totally PRO going on placement regardless your course. There is nothing that can prepare you better for your future career than spending some time in the industry and seeing the PROs and CONS. Who knows, maybe you realise that your dream job is actually not for you.

I’ve taken two very different fashion placements this summer, and I can honestly say that it was the best decision I could have taken…even if it kept me away from my holiday. I will talk more about each of them in a future post, but for now I would like to share with you the good and bad parts of taking a fashion placement.

      HOT                                                                          NOT

  • Direct contact with the industry ………….which may scare you
  • You get to meet new people………………..mostly superficial ones
  • Go to fancy events……………………………or events where you would never want to go
  • Makes you really responsible ……………. and makes you get up really early as well
  • Goody bags!!……………………………………made by you…300 of them to be exact
  • You’ll feel appreciated ………………………but they won’t even remember your name
  • You’ll get work experience………………….and loose some holidays
  • Get to see lots of fancy clothes……………..none for you still
