Your Next Best Job Opportunity Is In Technology -- Retail Technology
At the Kroger Co., headhunters are going bananas for technology majors. So are talent seekers at Nordstrom, Best Buy, Home Depot and others. Traditional retail positions, such as cashiers, are increasingly being shelved as major brands reduce store numbers and invest in digital integration. And with that shift comes an escalating demand for the technology talent to lead their efforts.
In short, if retail is going to sell in a virtual handbasket, then this year’s most promising jobs will involve insights, not inventories. For consumers, it means what was once considered a low-paying job is evolving into a long-term career with the potential to determine the fate of many major brands.
