24 Seven‘s recently released 2014 Salary + Job Market Report reflects that hiring is on the rise in the fashion and retail industry. Tammy Chatkin-Newman, 24 Seven’s Executive Vice President, West Coast, shared with California Apparel News that, “The talent that is highest in demand tends to be hybrid candidates that have both the traditional and digital experience.
