The past several years have carried a wave of economic challenges that have forced individuals and retail businesses alike to assess our spending habits, re-evaluate our resources, and reflect on what we need to move forward in a positive and productive direction. A time of trials and change has impacted the retail job market, leaving many in need of new opportunities and others looking for answers to tough questions. However, it’s important for all of us to remember that the tides do change.
After years of doom and gloom about the shrinking job market from pundits everywhere; and in particular those who claim that retail loss prevention jobs are declining, LPjobs has surpassed a milestone. Working with premiere retailers such as Walmart, Lowes, The Home Depot, Macy’s, and a cavalcade of others, as of today, LPjobs has posted more than 4,000 loss prevention jobs over the past ninety days, from store-level LP associates to high-level LP professionals. Not only are opportunities available, but positions are evolving as well as the loss prevention profession continues to respond to the needs of the retail industry and provide the support necessary to keep the business moving forward in a positive and productive direction. LPjobs has been widely regarded as the leader in online recruiting, and continues to expand their database of loss prevention jobs from across the United States.
There are many influences that impact retail in general, and many factors that drive our value to the industry and the future of the profession. However, a primary asset has always been our ability to adapt to the needs of the retail business. As decision makers continue to respond to the dynamics of the business new positions will be created, new opportunities will be presented, and more jobs will come. Look forward to the next wave, and the possibilities that come with it.
