It’s tough to be a assistant store manager nowadays, and more and more of them are losing confidence in their own profession.

While the amount of people majoring in courses preparing people for a job as a assistant store manager isn’t necessarily dropping, fewer and fewer people are applying to become assistant store managers in the first place and the workforce itself is looking grim.

With so many assistant store managers no longer sticking around, this begs the question:

What are they all doing now?

We were curious, so we looked through the resumes of former assistant store managers to see what kind of jobs they were moving into after leaving the field. There were thousands of answers, so we made the cutoff at the top 100 jobs.

The full list of those jobs can be found below.

Here’s a quick look at the top ten most common jobs for former assistant store managers:

  1. Store Manager
  2. Customer Service Representative
  3. Assistant Manager
  4. Sales Associate
  5. General Manager
  6. Operations Manager
  7. Administrative Assistant
  8. Manager
  9. Sales Representative
  10. Office Manager

These are all good jobs, all of them either utilizing some skill that a assistant store manager would have or being a stepping stone to a different career.

Here’s the thing about these jobs though — as a list, they’re kind of boring as hell. They’re pretty much exactly what you’d expect a lot of former assistant store managers to do.

How We Determined the Most Common Jobs of Former Assistant Store Managers

Using resume information from our database of over 7 million resumes, we looked at all resumes that listed assistant store manager under their work history.

That’s how we made the initial ranked list.

To make our list of most interesting jobs, we looked through the ranked list to see if any positions:

  • Showed up in fewer than 1% of all new jobs
