Good morning everyone,

I hope this email finds you well! Luxury brand Loro Piana will be returning to campus February 4th to meet and interview our students for their full-time Sales Professional position. I have included company info and application process/deadline below for you to share with students. Any major can apply, but this would be a great fit for our Retail and Customer Service students!

Loro Piana is globally renowned for its devotion to quality, innovation in textile products, unrivalled standards in design, its search for new materials and the quality of its craftsmanship. Loro Piana uses the world's finest cashmeres, including baby cashmere, and is a specialist in vicuña - a species of animal which Loro Piano has contributed significantly to saving from extinction - and many other exceptional yarns, not least the lotus flower and the exceptionally fine merino wool. At each stage of sourcing and production, Loro Piana combines traditional craftsmanship with the most advanced technology in the pursuit of absolute quality. In 2013, the Loro Piana family chose to sell a majority stake in their family business to the LVMH Group, also known for housing brands Marc Jacobs, Givenchy and Louis Vuitton, to name a few.

The Career and Leadership Development Center (CLDC), in collaboration with the Italian luxury brand Loro Piana, has created a unique opportunity for students to potentially earn gainful employment with Loro Piana and learn more about the luxury retail industry.

Listed below are links to their website and a couple videos about the company:

This collaboration between Ohio University and Loro Piana has the potential to provide great opportunities for OHIO students, now and in the future. Loro Piana services the top 30% of the top 10% and most employees gross a million dollars in sales. This in-store opportunity is unlike other retailers, in that sales professionals work 10-6 rather than the traditional retail hours.
A career in the luxury retail industry can be extremely lucrative and Loro Piana would be a great place to start that career.

Please find the attached job description and below you will find the application timeline.
