The two weeks I spent at Texlynx as an internee was indeed a noteworthy experience. Let me tell you a little about Texlynx. It’s basically a buying house, which works as a channel between the customer and the vendor, because most of the problems are provoked due to lack of communication and the customer never gets the assurance and the level of excellence he expects.
I learned how to deal with the customer and the vendor simultaneously and how things flow from the product development, to the merchandising and to the quality assurance phases of a particular production.
It’s not an easy job, being a product developer, a merchandiser or a quality controller because you have to be on a fast track, keeping everything very up to date and letting your customer feel secure about their consignment. Every now and then you have to pay a visit to the factory just to check, sometimes to push the vendor because believe me, the vendor knows a lot of shortcuts to get his/her work done, and the job of a buying house is to let everything be according to the customer’s demand so that s/he remains satisfied.
At texlynx, I learned a lot of communication tactics and how to get your work done in a wink of an eye and how to deal with your customer when things get a little twisted up.
Textiles is a very slow and gradual field where you can’t become a millionaire in an year or so, you really have to move in a steady pace, learning things at every step, at every mistake you make.
