How did you get your start doing retail merchandiser work, and what career moves did you make to get to your current position?

Do you need a particular educational background?

I have done retail merchandising in the past. I was employed by Hallmark Corporation for a little over one year. I would like to get back into this field.

(I posted the advice below on a different forum, but after how helpful I've found it, I want everybodty to know about NARMS!)

If you're interested in jobs in merchandising and/or mystery shopping, you should really check out NARMS.com

They're the National Association of Retail Marketing Services, and they help retailers refine their services, as well as provide a really excellent job site, which includes both short term merchandising and mystery shopping jobs (for which many require no previous experience), as well as more career-term jobs in the field.

I hope it works as well for you as it has for me ;)

Good luck!!

20 years ago I started in merchandising by working for American Greetings. Since then I have been in/out of the field. I like the flexible schedule and being independent. The key thing to remember is that this kind of work is like being in a marriage. For better or worse. That can be hard sometimes, but if you have a good boss, which I do, that makes up for a lot of other less wonderful things.

Acosta, Advantage, Spar, I have applied to all of them and they never got back to me at all. I don't believe at all that they have jobs available. I am from Long Island, NY and I see all the advertised jobs that Advantage, Crossmark, Spar and Acosta. I'd been a merchandiser for over 20 years. The last job I had for 9 years went dissolved because of changing technology. I 'd done reset for 3 years out of my 20 years in merchandising. I still don't understand why they don't call me. This all seem discriminatory.

Hi, I want to do merchandising in my area but don't know what you have to do . I use to be in retail and I loved it. Is there a way I can go to one of the job sites where they are doing resets ect... so I can be trained ?... Do you know if NARMS has a training class that I can take before I go out on my own and do the job?I was cut back at work and I really need a supliment.. Thanks Ellen
