2020 Retail: Visualizing the Future of Shopping by Lisa Collins

“Half of new graduates are jobless or underemployed”-- This statement from newspapers today is alarming for those of us in Career Services. Fortunately, there are industries like retailing and sectors within it, like E-Commerce that are growing at a rate of 40% per year.

Here at the Kohl's Department Stores Center for Retailing Excellence, we have dozens of employers looking to employ Badgers in their E-Commerce fields.

How do I get involved, you might ask? Attend the Omni Channel Conference on Wednesday, May 2nd at Varsity Hall in Union South from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. with a networking reception to follow. Attending this conference, which will be packed full of insights on the future of retailing, are VPs from major retailers such as Kohl’s, Target, and Lands’ End, just to name a few. We have about 34 different companies represented at this time!

Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to get cutting edge information and prime networking time with decision makers!
