Success story of Ekaterina
Ekaterina decided that she would like a career in visual merchandising. She found The Learning Shop’s 3 day Visual Merchandising in Modern Retail course online and enrolled. Whilst on the course various topics were covered including the history of visual merchandising, windows and brand identity. Part of the brief was to create various shop window displays, including a Spring & Mother ’s Day theme as well as a ‘Casino Royale – 007’ inspired set.
Whilst completing the course Ekaterina became familiar with the other services that The Learning Shop provides, she signed up for our CV writing and support. Using her new CV Ekaterina felt confident to start applying for vacancies and was soon offered an interview for a Visual Merchandiser position at Uniqlo store in Bluewater.
To prepare for her interview Ekaterina then came back to The Learning Shop to take part in Interview Technique training. The training gave her a chance to learn the following: First Impressions, How to control interview nerves, Most common questions, What to prepare and bring with you on the day etc.
After completing 3 different training programmes with The Learning Shop Ekaterina secured the position with Uniqlo.
