Hi! I'm pursuing a career in fashion merchandising and am targeting Product Coordinator roles/Assistant Buyer roles in the Greater Seattle area. I don't have a fashion merch degree but I do have a background in retail, expereince with buying/planning, and most recently have been recruiting for Assistant Buyer roles for a local ecommerce company. What kind of roles should I be targeting/do you think would be the best place for me to begin? What can I do to better position myself for the roles I want? Thanks in advance for your help!

There are very different hiring practices within the merchant space depending on the companies you are targeting. Having worked with a number of the companies in the Seattle market I would say that the transition will take some planning and patience. There may be a few steps involved to get from where you are, to where you want to be.
I would consider;
1. Going back to school to complete a merchandising degree program
2. Targeting the companies of interest and applying to work on the sales floor. Nordstrom for example, does maintain their “hire from within” practice, and the retail floor experience is critical to being successful within their buying office.
Sounds like you are on the right path looking at Product Coordinator and Assistant Buyer roles. However, do keep in mind that some companies will still require that floor experience, and if that is the case you could be farther along in your experience and be faced with the possibility of having to go back in order to move forward.
We hope you have found this helpful!
