The retail industry is well-known for its ability to offer jobs of many kinds to a wide range of people from diverse backgrounds, of diverse age groups, and with diverse levels of education. It is exciting that getting into retail mostly only requires a strong work ethic, the ability and willingness to learn, and some customer service skills. With that being said, it is also understandable that many people involved in the retail industry are interested in learning, moving up, and growing as individuals.
Une histoire récente a examiné par CNN montre comment détail géants y compris – Wal-Mart, McDonald’s, and Starbucks – are offering their employees the opportunity to earn college credit by taking courses that relate to the retail industry and its various positions, duties, and goals. There are classes on management, inventory handling, ethics, and much more.
