FGI Career Day

Career Day: What is it?

Lights, runway, meeting people in the industry and interviewing for a job are all part of the benefits of attending Career Day sponsored by Dallas Fashion Group International. Being in the market center animates the students and this experience of being in the center of the industry marketplace in Dallas is most beneficial for their understanding of the industry pipeline. Because the event is held in the Apparel Mart, we are able to draw from professionals on site to give the students inspiration. The industry professionals share real-world experiences and explain what is necessary to compete in the workplace. Student competitions in merchandising, trend boards and apparel design simulate industry work environments and challenges; the students are able to see how peers from all over the United States create designs and complete research for their projects. Baylor University supports this event by taking students each year and we hope you will be one of those students who goes with our group.
