I just need some advice on a change of career. I intend to go to university as a mature student however I am unsure if I should go with my first passion fashion or if I should study my other interest marketing
I have researched and looked in to graduate jobs and the prospects. My main issue with fashion is I have start learning to sew but most jobs require people to have at least a ba in fashion design. A lot more jobs compared to last year require people to have a degree in business , marketing or management to get an entry position in marketing.
I have found two courses I would love to do .
The first one is fashion buying with design
The second is marketing and management with psychology.
It would be a dream to be a designer or have start my own fashion line. I feel like I need the knowledge of where and how to source suppliers and the CONNECTIONS and potential opportunities fashion school might provide.
If I couldn't go on to be a designer , I feel social media marketing would be the other option, as I love that side of business and I'm a creative person. I feel like a marketing and management degree would help me gain the skills to market ideas and manage a company .
A marketing and management with psychology degree might lead to other opportunities-
last year I was considering speech and language therapy as a career but I already know I would only want to work with kids to teens and I feel like I can be that picky with allied health career and while the money is better in the beginning than a fashion or marketing career im unsure if its a long term career for me and I dont want to be limited. I also have experience working with children and while it wasn't the worse job I've had it , it was a wow I want to be in this career sector.
I have considered a fashion marketing degree but I really want to have a fashion design degree which is with another business subject.
I've seen very few courses like that.
