Whole Foods is a hot Brand, will look great on your resume...and THEY ARE HIRING!
Attention future chefs, business leaders, marketing pros, event planners, wellness junkies...
Here are a few more reasons why working in the Food-Retail Industry is a great start to your career.
(or a great way to earn some extra money for school!)
-- Showing that you've worked at this large-scale company with a hot 'Brand' - one of wellness and progressiveness - will look impressive on your resume.
-- Flexible hours(!)
-- Everyday is different. Nothing 'routine' about this biz.
-- Excellent ability to move up via promotions and to explore different types of jobs in the industry.
-- Working at a Supermarket will expose you to all types of people and give you the training and experience to DEAL WITH all these different types of people.
-- The level of customer service required to work in this type of retail setting will perk any recruiter's interest.
-- The Washington Post recently reported that "non-routine" professions are most recession-proof because these workers are able to (and have to) "think flexibly and creatively throughout the day, whether that involves debugging a section of code or helping a customer choose between different kinds of seasonal lattes." A fast-paced grocery-store environment does just that.
-- Potential to learn other aspects of the business such as purchasing, management and even event production and coordination. You could look into branching out into the company's IT Department, Security or their Marketing Department.
-- Maybe the best benefit? A discount on the food you buy!
