I've been interested in this field for years. The artist in me loves the creative presentation side of the job, and the nerd side loves the analysis end.
What's really wonderful is that I'm entering a department that is coveted by many in our company. Not only because of the creativity that it allows, but also because the Director of the Department is a wonderfully kind, smart and compassionate man. He and his Wife have eight children and they value a life of balance.
The only downside of my new position is that I am leaving our Shoe Department where I was the Replenishment Analyst - responsible to keeping the stores stocked with shoes in the basic inventories.
The Department is full of fun, smart, kind women. It's a nice comfortable home, and I'm proud of what we have created there.
