Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaFashion Software1

When you work in the Fashion industry, at any level, there will always be some sort of computer software that you will need to know how to use. Whether it be in a retail store using the Point of Sale system for transactions or the inventory count or in the office writing copy for the website using programs like Grammarly or WordPress. It doesn’t matter what your role, you will be using software to aid in your job. So, what do you need to know now to ensure you are on top of your game?

 

Design has the most computer software usage out of all of the different fashion sectors.  There are several different types of design software that allow you to create pieces without having to use pen and paper. You are able to make more 3D renderings of how you want a piece to look, flow and fall on a person. Programs such as Adobe, Wild Ginger, Autodesk Design Software and C-Design Fashion are great tools for designers that let you have more freedom and a realistic view of a design.

 

Algorithmic Couture is also on the rise. Through software called Synflux, the program aims to reduce the waste of fabric when creating products. It scans the subject’s body to determine their proportions and create custom clothing. You are able to grab the correct amount of fabric for each piece of the garment and leave virtually no waste.

 

Another sector that is getting a software overhaul is Styling. Styling isn’t just looking at clothing and putting together trends and fashion anymore. Companies such as Stitch Fix are using AI (artificial intelligence) in order to style outfits. This is based on the customer’s preferences and shape, much like a stylist would do. There is an overlap starting to happen where AI is now designing original pieces catered to the consumer. Coding software for AI and being knowledgeable about AI, such as how to create it, work with it and fix it, is becoming more common in the backend of the fashion industry.

 

Computer software and technology are always changing. It is important to keep updated with technology and how it is interacting with the fashion industry to ensure you are staying relevant within the field.

Fashion Summer Internships

Whether you want to admit it or not, summer 2017 is winding down and so is your beauty internship! Although we can’t extend the days in the summer season, it’s definitely possible to add months (and even years) to a placement by turning it into a “real” paying job.

 

It’s a fact: a large number of entry-level positions in the beauty industry are landed after completing an internship with the company. Whether you need school credits or vital experience as a recent grad, we share a few tips on how you can flip your summer internship into a full-time gig. Read on below.

 

Be Reliable

This is a given. If you haven’t been showing up 15 minutes early to your placement, start ASAP. You can also prove how reliable you are by handing in work well before the deadline and answering emails promptly. Small things make a big impact in the eyes of your potential future boss — they show you’re on top of your game!

Be Enthusiastic

They say “if you love what you do you’ll never work a day in your life”, BNTF says if you radiate how much you love the work at your internship, you’ll increase your chances of an offer. Taking on even the most boring, routine tasks with a smile says a lot about your work ethic. A positive attitude is a quality 100% of employers want to keep around.

Be Memorable

In larger companies, beauty internships will require more than one girl or guy to get the job done — some may even require a whole team! If you find yourself working with tons of other interns, make yourself memorable. Lead the pack by going above and beyond what is required. It’s also key to establish a connection with the actual employees (instead of just the fellow interns).

Be Ready..

.. for disaster, which will inevitably happen at some point in your professional career. Beauty internships are notorious for being very detail oriented, after all, it’s the little things that set one product apart from the other. Whether you make a typo, send an email addressed to the wrong person, misspell a product name or worse, be ready to take accountability for your mistake and bounce back from it!

Be Teachable

Upgrade your role from hardworking intern to full-time employee by demonstrating how easily you pick up new skills. Most beauty internships provide newcomers with a handbook or introduction video. For ad hoc tasks, write processes and procedures down in detail and constantly reference them. Express how valuable you find new knowledge and that you’d love to learn more!

 

Be a Knockout

Impressing your future employer is so important but how is it actually done? Simple – underpromise and overdeliver. When you’re asked to complete a task that you (secretly) specialize in, like writing a killer blog post for example, slightly downplay your skills. Your potential boss will be impressed with your execution based on the lowered expectation you’ve set for yourself. Use this tactic in moderation.

Be Top of Mind

Timing is everything. You may already be doing all things listed above but there just isn’t a current opening for a new team member (which sucks!) Make the most out of this bad timing by connecting with the company and its employees via LinkedIn and other social media platforms. Actively engage with posted content and continue to show interest in what they’re up to.

Lastly, for the love of all things good in this world — just ask! The worst you can be told is no. Any other tips we missed on turning your summer internship into a full-time job? Leave them in the comments below.

Sunday Night Blues

We all know that sinking feeling. It’s 4pm on a Sunday and all you can think about are all the things you need to get done for the week and how fast the weekend has flown by. The ‘Sunday Blues’ are real and we are not here for them! It doesn’t matter if you love your 9 to 5, or dread going in to work, we all feel the same, weekends are just way too short. So, how can you ensure that you don’t feel this dreaded feeling every weekend? We’ve come up with a list to get you through the Sunday Blues.

 

Prep

Turn this dreaded task into something fun. As part of our Sunday routine, we usually meal prep and choose our outfits, right? It can become a mundane task where you just move through the motions. Have fun with it! When you’re meal prepping, make foods that you will be excited to eat. It still could just be a salad, but what can you do to make it different and fun. 

 

Set Goals

Make a list of all the things you want to accomplish in the upcoming work week. What are your goals to complete? You’ll be setting yourself up for success and change the negative feeling of the weekend coming to an end to a positive feeling. You will look forward to what you can accomplish in the work week. 

 

Make Sunday Special

Pick something that you can do every Sunday that makes it special and ends your weekend on a high note. Maybe it’s a date night with your significant other. Maybe it’s girl’s night. Maybe it’s a few hours you can sit by yourself and read a book. Choose something that you can keep up every Sunday to combat the blues.

 

Self-Care

There is #selfcaresunday for a reason! Take this time to focus on you. Our go to? A glass of wine, a good book, a bubble bath and a facemask. Your weekend may have been hectic, so it’s nice to end it off by relaxing and centring yourself. Not only will you feel great, but you’ll start your work week off refreshed.

 

Exercise and reflect

Don’t skip the workout on Sunday. It doesn’t have to be a full-blown gym session, but take some time to get your blood pumping and reflect on all the great things you did over the weekend. If the weather allows, go for a walk outside and be with nature. Not only will you feel great, but you’re being healthy as well.

Fashion Jobs in Vancouver – 5 tips to Start Your Morning Off Right

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada5 tips to start your morning off right

Setting the tone for the day is so important. We’ve all felt that awful feeling of waking up on the wrong side of the bed. Once you wake up in a bad mood or a weird mood, it’s really hard to shake it off. Here at SNTF, we’ve come up with some sure-fire ways to help you start your day off right.

 

Give yourself plenty of time in the morning

 

The feeling of rushing around in the morning, probably forgetting things, and not giving yourself ample time to adjust to the morning, really gives you a feeling of unease and anxiousness throughout the day. We recommend setting an earlier than usual alarm, taking your time to wake up in bed, and not feel like your rushing while you’re getting ready. You’d be amazed at how much better and at ease you will feel throughout the day. You’ll also feel productive. You’ve started your day earlier and have had so much more time to accomplish things on your to-do list.

 

Journal

 

Start your day with good intentions. One of our favourite things to do is write in our Five-Minute journal in the morning (they can be purchased at Indigo or Amazon). This journal gives you daily prompts and time to think of the things you’re grateful for, want to accomplish and think of daily affirmations. It’s a great way to have some ‘you’ time without making a huge effort in the morning. Keep this journal on your bedside table and make these first five minutes a routine.

 

Meditate

 

Meditation takes a lot of time and practice to fully get into the groove, but there are great apps like Headspace that can help you with this practice. Through guided meditations, all at varying lengths to suit your lifestyle, you are able to clear your mind and tap into your emotions and how your body feels. Doing this in the morning is like having a daily check in with yourself. You can tell if your body needs a bit more love, if you need to take it a bit easier, or if you feel great!

 

Get Moving

 

Start your day with a workout, stretch or yoga. Getting your body moving is a fantastic way to wake yourself up and feel energized. You get all your endorphins going and just feel like you can conquer the day.

 

Eat a nutritious breakfast

 

The best part of the morning is breakfast. Whether you eat light or you make a full, cooked breakfast, eating a nutritional meal is the best way to start your day. You will be moving and thinking and working, meaning you need some gas in your tank! Try making overnight oats with fruit, or boiling some eggs for breakfast. Set your day up for success.

Career Advice – How to be a Great New Hire While Being Yourself

Wednesday, March 20th, 2019

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaCareer Advice - How to be a great new hire

Starting a brand new fashion job (or any job) can bring on feelings of both excitement and anxiety followed by fear of the unknown and the pressure to do your best. Your work ethic during the first 30 to 90 days of employment are extremely important in regards to setting the stage for your future with that company. Not to add any additional pressure, but your first few weeks/months of employment may also determine whether or not your employer thinks you’re an asset to the business.

 

Success will be defined by your performance and the way in which you approach challenges as they arrive. We’ve all been in this situation before at work and outside of work; trying to become a part of a group while maintaining our individuality can be perplexing. I’ve found the below tips to be quite helpful and I hope you will also find them useful:

 

Don’t make a scene. How annoying is that new person? You don’t want to be that person who annoys existing employees within the first week. You’re the new kid in town and you’ve got to prove yourself before you alienate yourself. There are two objectives that you have to demonstrate: (1) that you’re capable of the tasks required of your job; and (2) that you’re going to fit in with the existing company culture.

 

Work your hardest to ensure all of your responsibilities are covered and pay close attention to your surroundings. Get a feel for the swing of things and the daily workflow of different departments. Observe the habits of your colleagues and try to blend in with their schedules (lunch, breaks during the day, time in and time out). Once you feel the attention is off of you and you’re suddenly not so new, you can branch out and start making your own rules (within limits, of course).

brunette the label

Offer to help. We all want to be seen as ambitious and willing to take initiative, but there’s a time and a place for everything. As a new hire, getting your feet wet by offering to help coworkers with their projects will go over a lot better than jumping in head first with brand new ideas and a push for immediate changes. Without knowing how things are currently progressing, how can you be absolutely certain that your method will be better?

 

If you’re confident in your abilities and you know change is inevitable, give your newness a few weeks to sink in before moving forward. At the risk of being hated by everyone whose work life you just disrupted, it may be worth the wait. Help out in departments that impact your overall objective and get an in depth idea of current practices before suggesting changes.

 

Make your first and only impression. My last piece of advice is to project yourself in the way that you wish to be perceived. From the way you dress to the way you speak, in your first few days of employment, these characteristics will come to define you. A new job is a great way to reinvent yourself and to walk into a new environment with confidence.

 

Unfortunately, you will be judged – that’s what people do – but you have the upper hand here because they don’t know anything about you. You’ve got a clean slate to be a star employee, to make an impact as you pursue your career, and to meet people who are just as passionate as you are about their jobs.

Fashion Jobs – Spring Jackets You Need This Year

Tuesday, March 19th, 2019

It’s safe to say it felt like spring would never arrive this year.  And with the start of the new season just days away,  it means it’s almost time to retire our parkas and grab something lighter and more fun. Spring is the time of year where everything feels fresh and full of happiness and your outerwear choices should reflect that! While the classic trench coat or camel pea coat is always in season, there are five more styles we’re all for this year.

 49548464_079_b (1)

Statement leather
What better way to make it known that spring is here than by wearing bright colours. Retire your classic leather jacket and try this coloured trend instead. Many coloured leather jackets have other fun features as well. If you want to go full out with this trend, try one with tassels or a bejewelled belt.

2014691600_1_1_1 

Oversized blazer
Just like a trench or light peacoat, an oversized blazer is always in style. Pair it with a loose-fitting dress to get an ‘80’s feel, with skinny jeans and a blouse for after work drinks, or with a matching pair of trousers for a bold power suit. The options with this jacket are endless, which makes it a great investment piece for spring.

The ‘everyday’ jacket
When you just need a jacket to grab and go, you want something that’s a little warmer than a bomber jacket and can be styled with everything you own. We love this Borg jacket from Topshop because it’s perfect for running errands, throwing over a turtleneck and jeans for a casual brunch, or over your work clothes for a night out, which makes it super versatile.

 7901031108_1_1_1

Boucle
We can all picture the classic Chanel bouclé coat. It’s probably the first thing that comes to mind if you think either Chanel or bouclé. This jacket has an air of elegance and class. Paired with a pencil skirt or denim, this jacket will elevate every outfit you choose.

 Screen Shot 2019-03-17 at 1.16.29 PM

Denim
What screams spring more than a denim jacket? It’s light and can be casual and edgy at the same time. Put on a floral, flowy dress and top it with an oversized, light wash, denim jacket and you have the ultimate spring outfit. This is an investment piece that will never go out of style.

Career Tips – 6 Tips for Getting Yourself Promoted

Find fashion jobs, style careers, retail jobs, job advice, career advice, job listings, careers, fashion jobs, social media internships, retail jobs, fashion design jobs, buying jobs, fashion stylist jobs and style careers on Style Nine to Five!

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

How to Get Yourself Promoted

1. Develop a Bond With Your Boss: 

Building a positive relationship with your manager or boss will allow them to think of you for future opportunities. This doesn’t mean you need to be best friends, but establish the type of connection where you feel comfortable to approach them and hold a friendly conversation. Let them know what your goals are and the direction you wish to take within the company. Your boss can offer a great form of guidance or mentoring and help you get to where you want to go.

2. Take on More Responsibilities:

Show that you are ready to take on a higher position by asking for additional tasks that will prove you are capable to work a job at the next level. Take initiative and offer your time when volunteers are needed for new assignments. Come in earlier or stay later and be willing to work outside of your job description. If you are able to complete multiple tasks effectively, people will take notice and suggest you are fit for a more complex role.

3. Seek New Skills:

A new job position will require you to be knowledgeable in different areas and obtain certain skills. There can be several employees that are worthy of a promotion, therefore it is important to stand out and have a beneficial skill set. Keep up to date with any technology or systems used on the job and always be aware of what’s happening in the industry outside of the office.

brunette the label

4. Build Your Network:

If you are well known within your field, the more likely your name will be passed around and recommended. Get to know all of the people you work closely with and even those in other departments. Try to socialize and learn new things from colleagues who currently work as your aspiring job title or who have been previously promoted.

5. Have a Voice:

Actively participate during team meetings and state your opinions or ask questions. Come across as someone who is interested in the conversation, rather than never having anything to say. This will demonstrate your value and ability to contribute useful ideas.

6. Ask About it:

This may seem obvious, but sometimes all you need to do is ask! A promotion or job opening may not be brought to your attention simply because no one knew you were interested in the first place. Make it clear that you want to do something new and progress towards a different role. Don’t be afraid to ask for advice or feedback on your performance, so you can highlight your recent accomplishments and know how you can improve.

Career Advice – 5 Questions to Ask Before You Leave an Interview

Interview Questions

So you’ve made it through the gruelling questions about your strengths, weaknesses and everything in between during your interview. You may have sweated through your entire suit and feel like you’ve lost all your breath from your chatter, but the end is near! Before you’re able to go out and breathe a sigh of relief, your interviewer will most likely ask you if you have any questions for him/her. This is an important aspect of every interview that is not to be ignored! Potential employers want to see that you have a genuine interest in learning more about the job and organization, before you even start your first day. Responding to this with a simple “no, not at the moment” could come across as lazy or disinterested. If you have some questions already in your mind, that’s great, but also feel free to ask anything that still may be unclear from the job posting or interview session.

Here are five key questions to consider asking your interviewer before you race out the door!

1. What is a typical day like on the job?

You already should know the key responsibilities and duties from what you’ve read from the posting or have been told, but this may allow you to get a more in depth description of your role. It will help you to envision yourself on the job and mentally prepare yourself for your first day if you are the successful candidate!

 brunette the label

2. How is feedback given here?

Whether it may be monthly performance reports or simple informal chats with your manager, it’s important to know how you’ll find out whether you’re doing a good job or not.

 

3. What is the workplace culture like?

You may be spending forty or more hours of your week with these new coworkers, so it’s good to know how people interact with each other and what values are important to them. It’s also good to add on here whether they do activities outside of work, like team building trips or retreats. It’ll be nice to hear if the interviewer says everyone who already works there together gets along and if they have values that match up with yours!

 

4. What do you like about working here?

This can be a great determiner of whether you yourself will like working at the organization or not. If they respond with something like “it’s easy money” or something uninspiring, then chances are they don’t actually like working there! If they give an in depth response, explaining it’s a great environment and fulfilling work, then it’s more likely they genuinely enjoy their work.

 

5. What are the key challenges to your organization right now?

This way you can see if the interviewer can actually evaluate their organization’s current position and they now what the company needs to work on. If they tell you everything is just peachy keen, then they are lying! Or they really have no clue what the company’s goals are and what they need to overcome to accomplish that. If they explain to you some of these challenges, then you can see how you would be able to help conquer these roadblocks using your skills and traits.

Asking some or all of these question will help you get a better sense of what it will be like to potentially work in the organization, and will also help you feel so much more prepared for your first day if you do indeed get the call back for the job. Don’t be afraid to take notes when they answer these questions and pay attention! You’ll be able to leave your interview in a much better mood knowing you impressed your potential employer with these key questions.

You can always have the perfect outfit, but it won’t feel quite complete without the right jewellery. Just like fashion, jewellery trends change with the seasons and years. While dainty jewellery is always a good go-to, bold, statement pieces are what every fashionista can’t get enough of this year. If your wardrobe needs a refresher, these are the trends we can’t get enough of that will take any outfit up to the next level.

Crystal Earrings
Who doesn’t love a little bit of bling? This year, you can instantly up your outfit with a serious dose of sparkle. This is easily one of our favourite trends because a pair of crystal earrings can be paired with everything from velvet bustier tops to T-shirts. This trend has already exploded, and we see no signs of it slowing down.

Screen Shot 2019-03-11 at 8.10.55 PM

Hearts
Hearts aren’t just for Valentine’s Day anymore. From statement earrings to necklaces, hearts can be integrated into any piece of jewellery. Take a look at an ‘80’s outfit, and hearts will be everywhere. It’s time to take that trend into 2019 and beyond.

NG-13889_TURQUOISE_02

Seashells
This might be the most surprising trend we’ve seen so far this year. What better way to feel like you’re in Hawaii than wearing shells. Now, we’re not talking those touristy pucka shells. This trend has become elevated and bold. To go with the warmer weather we seem to finally be getting, why not be a bit playful with your jewellery. If you want the ease into the trend, try some gold hoops with shells dangling in the middle.

e8b7bf11-6c54-4ebc-b835-ecde0bac8e6c

Chains
Chain-link print and jewelry are everywhere this season. From shirts and skirts to necklaces and bracelets. Large chain-link bracelets and necklaces in a chunky gold can take an outfit from girly to edgy.

Diamond Drop Earrings
Diamonds are most frequently worn on everyday studs, but this holiday season you’ll be seeing them in elegant drop earring styles.
