Store Team Leader at Target

My six years with Target have been awesome! When I graduated with a degree in Journalism, I was surprised to find myself working in a completely different field from my college major. However, I quickly realized I had found a company that valued me and my skill set. From day one, Target showed me two very clear opportunities: 1) Personal leadership development with emphasis of leading teams to achieve great results and 2) Rapid advancement and responsibility. As I've grown with the company, I've seen how my development as a leader and as a person has been intentionally planned with a strong emphasis of focusing on my strengths to help me be successful. The company leadership tapped into many of the skills I had learned through the Grady College of Journalism as well as through the Career Center. The great news I can report is that the sky is the limit for my chances to grow and develop at Target. I am here today not only because of my great experience at Target, but also because of my great experience at Grady and the Career Center.
