Are you itching to work at Urban Outfitters? Now here’s your chance. Today in my inbox, I received an e-mail with the subject of “Urban Outfitters Champaign – Now Hiring.” How did Urban Outfitters know that I live in Champaign and would like to know about job openings as a manager, display artist or merchandiser? Well, I’m not quite sure and I really don’t want to work there. But perhaps you do?

So, for all you jobless fashionistas out there looking for a discount position as a manager, display artist or merchandiser, get your resume and portfolio ready. On Wednesday, May 7 and Thursday, May 8 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Urban Outfitters will be accepting applications and running interviews in the Franz Joseph Conference Center at the Historic Lincoln Hotel, 209 S. Broadway St. in Urbana.

While the future home of Urban Outfitters at 507 E. Green Street in Campustown is hardly complete, the trendy chain store is still scheduled to open this August.
