Get on the fast track to becoming NYC’s next top fashion executive with Fashion Draft NYC. NYCEDC and Parsons are teaming up to recruit talented business-minded college seniors for management-track positions at some of NYC’s top fashion firms, including Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, Gilt Groupe, and LF USA. The program will provide select students with an all-expense-paid trip to NYC from February 16th-18th, 2012; these students will participate in interviews for full-time jobs in fashion business. In addition to the interviews, events will include:
- A keynote address
- Company tours that provide a behind-the-scenes look at the industry
- A networking dinner with fashion executives and human resources managers
The deadline to apply for this unique opportunity is 11:59PM EST on November 3rd. Any undergraduate senior on track to graduate in Spring 2012 is welcome to apply so long as he/she has at least a 3.5 GPA and has completed at least one internship relevant to business and/or fashion.

Fashion Draft NYC follows on the heels of Fashion Campus NYC, an annual weekend immersion in fashion and retail management for college interns. Fashion Draft NYC and Fashion Campus NYC are two of six initiatives resulting from Mayor Bloomberg’s Fashion.NYC.2020, an ongoing examination of the challenges facing the fashion industry to help the City build on its competitive advantages to maintain its status as a global fashion capital.
