Past generations used to say, “Money makes the world go ‘round.” This may be truer than ever today. However, the context has definitely changed. Today, Americans spend their money more than they invest it, and much of it is spent in big box stores like Walmart. But consumers are changing their outlook, which is impacting the job descriptions of anyone who works in the industry.
Check out these key retail jobs in 2020. Maybe you have what it takes to excel in this redefined world of retail!
Penny-Pinchers Out, Experience-Seekers In.
The consumer economy used to be focused on the purchase price more than anything else, and low prices drove the market. As the up-and-coming generation of consumers flex their spending power, this is changing. The purchase experience is becoming more important than chasing the ultimate good deal, which shifts the responsibility for the sale from the store, which sets the prices, to its people, who can make or break a sale with the quality of their interactions with customers.
As a result, retailers are now filling retail sales associate jobs with people who are friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. In the world of tech for instance, sales reps who know their stuff and can create a pleasant experience for the customer will not only get the job but get ahead, perhaps even into other retail careers such as retail management jobs. To borrow another phrase from the past, “We want YOU” to help us create the ultimate experience for the customer.
