That’s why you were hired. You’re in charge of your career at Bloomingdale’s, and we’re here to help.
Learning is essential to advancement. We see to it that you have several opportunities to build your knowledge through virtual workshops, videos, books, podcasts, you name it.
As expected, there are certain things that can only be learned through experience. Naturally, you’ll get plenty of it day-to-day, on the job, but you can pick up even more through extras like job shadowing, job rotation, special projects and stretch assignments.
Lastly and especially, don’t forget the inherent value of your own curiosity. Bring it with you to Bloomingdale’s and turn it loose. Tap into informational interviews, find a mentor, talk with colleagues about their approach to tasks and challenges, probe for feedback on your performance, choices and which skill sets need honing.
Get out of your comfort zone and be inquisitive. Ask the right questions often. By fully tapping resources available to you, the more you’ll advance. And there are plenty of resources for your professional development.
It’s your career—and your life. Do something bold with it.
