I wanted to know if anyone had any insight on how to get into the Fine swine Auction side of the industry (I.e Christie’s, Sotheby’s, Zachy’s etc)
I find that this isn’t a part of the industry that’s talked about much (especially on the floor). It also seems to be a part of the industry that’s so niche (& less known about), getting in would require more education than experience and of course knowing the right people (networking)
How could one transition into the Fine Wine Auctions?
My background is a BS in Hospitality Management & Business minor. I’ve currently been working to the floor for the last 3 years after graduating to get a solid foundation on the industry at the customer level. Would love to consider transition. Wouldn’t mind going back to school for my Masters (I’ve noticed most auction professionals have their Masters degrees)
I actually work for Zachys in their DC office. I'd love to chat with you , my email is email@example.com.
