Joyce Boutique Holdings Limited (WIKIPEDIA) (SEHK: 647) is a famous fashionretailer in Hong Kong. It is engaged in the franchise of internationally renowned fashion, accessories and cosmetics designer brands in Greater China under the name “Joyce” or mono brand freestanding stores. It operates 66 points of sale in Greater China.
That was just a short fill-in for those of you who did not know anything about the company. It is a sub-company with another famous retailer in hk name Lane Crawford but only that Joyce is more exclusive for customers-wise. This brand holds in-charge of more than 50 luxury brands internationally, and the styles of it various in a wide-range. Classy to chic, sexy to subtle anything, you name it. And the huge possibility with the system is the attraction for me to apply as an intern. I even ran out of words of how many things I have learn through out the two months of interning. From all the legit paper work to dealing with your boss and colleagues, definitely nothing you can learn from college or books. I was working mainly in the merchandising department which I would say pretty much the core of the food chain within the company. Dealing with numbers, inserting excel, compiling reports everyday. The workload is extremely heavy and the repetitiveness of it is very tiring. I have realized being a buyer is not as fancy as you think where they are flying from countries to countries during fashion weeks, the guarantee seats of the front rows requires the sleepless nights of hard work and calculations, so it’s not so much of a vacation at all. The next step would always be trying out to work in different departments to seek for the best position of my own, which category do I fall into the best.
