My responsibilities during my internship are doing the weekly stylist picks that are displayed in the fitting rooms, assisting with the visual merchandising, and recording sales and the conversion rate.
My greatest accomplishment during my internship experience was being able to assist customers with styling outfits and truly understanding the brand identity of Anthropologie.
The greatest lesson I learned from my experience was getting a better idea of what the retail industry entailed. I had worked in retail stores previously but not at the same level. Anthropologie really focuses on their brand identity and was really neat getting to see that put into practice everyday by all of the employees.
What advice would you give?
Advice I would give to future students interested in AMD, is to really go for it. There are so many different organization and clubs Iowa State offers that gives you not only experience but life lessons to take away!
