Believe in yourself. You will hit the Target!

Senior year in college is a scary and exciting year for everyone. You are finishing up another chapter in your life, you may or may not have to go back home, and now all of your hard work must result in a job! I worked so hard throughout college to maintain a great GPA, but being a mother of 2 did not make me into the traditional college student who had a lot of time for extracurricular activities to show for.

I went to my school’s Career Fair, and Target was there recruiting interns. I spoke to the recruiters about who I am and what motivates me. Listening to other students speak to the recruiters about the leadership program they joined for 4 years, or the 2 years studying abroad made me second guess myself. I asked myself, why would Target want a person with a psychology major? I put my resume on the pile with everyone else’s and walked away.

To my surprise my school Career Center called me and told me that Target requested me for an interview for the internship program. As you already imagine, I got the internship. During an intern event I saw my recruiter and asked him why did he call me back? He said “I knew you would be perfect for Target; you are passionate about what you love, you know hard work pays off, and that not everything is black and white”.

After my internship, I was offered a position to be the Executive Team Leader of Guest Experience. I was in that position for 18 months, and during that time I was able to help people, and use what motivates them to shape them into better professionals while at the same time driving results for Target. Now I am training to be a Human Resource Executive where I believe I can make more of an impact, and continue to find those who need someone to believe in them.

A leader at Target is not necessarily the one with the longest resume. It is the one with the most passion, who knows who to believe in, and how to motivate them to achieve their best. That’s how Target achieves results.

    I will not be shopping at Target anytime to soon. This politically correct stuff you are doing because you don’t want to offend anyone is ridiculous.

    I am 72 years old and stores have always advertised where boys and girls toys, clothing or whatever was located. I think what you are doing is carrying this “PC” junk to far. I will be telling my friends to do the same. You people need a reality check.

    Hi whoever is reading this. I’m looking for a job as a team lead in the Minneapolis / St. Paul area. My application got shot down through the careers website but I think I have a pretty good resume in that I have a lot of retail experience and some management experience. It might have got rejected because my college background is more towards public accounting. I’m not sure if the system auto pulls backgrounds that are not an exact match for the job.

    I wanted to get my profile in front of real person. What should I do next? If you can’t help me, can you direct me to someone who can?

    Thanks,
    Grant

    Thank you for the encouraging profile statement, Orietta. I am seeking a new career after almost three decades of working with students, families and administration. I can not imagine working in an environment oriented toward something other than helping people achieve! As teachers, we see the wide spectrum of students’ needs and the different measurements of success. I commend you for assisting others in developing their skills and potentials! “Success” is not a final goal, but a progression of events in learning what you CAN do! I am glad you were selected and moving into a great opportunity, as I hope to be, too. :)

    Thanks Orietta! I am in the same position, a senior in college looking for an internship, but may not have the most polished resume! You have reminded me to stay optimistic throughout this journey! Good luck in your HR position!
