Don’t worry, I’m not leaving Target, but I am leaving this blog.
My Target journey started over five years ago as an intern at headquarters in Minneapolis. Initially, I was not interested in working at Target, but an opportunity came my way and I thought, “this could be cool for the summer.” Little did I know that by day four, I’d be head over heels for Target.
One of my favorite things about working at Target is that I truly believe the world is my oyster here. If I work hard, I can accomplish anything. Sounds a bit cliché, right? Well, this blog is a perfect example. We came up with this idea- let team members tell the Target story- and through a lot of collaboration, strategy and partnership, we made it a reality. This was not a project where someone said, “Sukie, go do this,” but instead through my ability to influence, work with others and sell a great idea, I was able to make this part of my job.
Now, it’s time for me to move on. Earlier this year, I started a second assignment within Talent Acquisition. That’s what’s fun about Target…there is always something new- a new project, new client, new partnership, new role and maybe in the future, a new department or area all together? Target has shown me that if I work hard, I can be whatever I want to be.
And today…that means working on a team member video shoot for target.com/careers.
P.S. Look for an upcoming post where you can meet Nick, Talent Acquisition’s recent addition from our Marketing department!
