This is work experience that I have outside of the media industry. Up until commencing the course, I was working full-time in the retail sector.
As with any type of industry, there are particular skills and believes that are unique to them. Some companies will have specific software packages, different scheduling and ways of doing business. The retail sector is no different to that. It is a very fast moving and highly-pressured industry. Like most industries, it is affected by outside factors happening around it. The economic downturn had a major impact on it for instance.
There are many skills that you learn that are transferable; no matter where you work. I will discuss this in the Musgrave section.
