Careers | Ann Inc.

December 11, 2014

For a loooong while I’ve been receiving emails asking about job openings in the fashion industry since this is a fashion based blog that focuses on 9-5 fashion. So, ok. I can see that parallel being made. However, as some of you know, I don’t work in the fashion industry. Unless you consider a government job fashion related. Har har. A little DC humor. I’m testing this out today to see how it’s received so please let me know if you’re interested in seeing more opportunities like this one, you’d rather have a list of fashion related openings in one post, or I should scrap the idea all together.

I’m mildly obsessed with Ann Taylor. Obviously. Like, just-received-my-Ann-Taylor-card in-the-mail obsessed. Best or worst life decision, by the way? And I know that most of you 9-5ers are too. So when I got the opportunity to share ANN INC. job openings with you, I jumped at it. Whether you’re interested in Corporate or Retail, is the site to bookmark. It’s a Gallup Great Workplace Award winner—only fashion retailer to receive it. ANN INC. gets women and is focused on female empowerment, strength, community, growth, character, and confidence. Learn more about about “Fit“, career paths, and benefits all at ANN INC.


Like preparing for any type of job application, update your resume to the date you plan to submit your application and include a cover letter. Old school? Yes. Professional? Yes. Essential to the application process? 100%. Submission sans cover letter is impersonal and starts you off on the wrong foot. Take the time to write a brief but tailored letter presenting your case. Why are you the best fit for an ANN INC. position? Send it to a friend in another industry to get an outside perspective. Send it to a friend in the same industry to get a relatable perspective. And for the next few weeks, send it to me. Until Jan 1, I’ll be reviewing resumes and cover letters for any job application. Real life. This is important. I have a little experience and I’m more than happy to help if you’re interested.

Stay up to date on ANN INC. openings via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Linkedin, and their website. While you’re at it, enter to win a $25 gift card to ANN INC. by following these social media channels! (Must be U.S. resident; 18+ to win)

If we’ve hung out at all since the weather’s cooled off you’ve seen me in some variation of this outfit. I rolled up to an event last night in this and a girlfriend threatened to call out my rewearing ways. Call away, sister. Ain’t no shame in my game. Because when you find simple pieces that work for you, I say wear ‘em into the ground. I’m having a minimal moment and I dig it. If you love the look but it’s a little too basic for your taste, try layering chunkier necklaces and going with a shoe with less hardware. These boots make an appearance at least 4 times a week in some way or another and the hardware makes for a great accessory if you’re not a huge jewelry girl.

THESE are THEE JEANS, by the way. They’ve been a hot topic of discussion and for good reason. How cah-ute? You know how much I loathe denim but these change the game: stretchy, comfy, coated, and $29. I now have 5.
