A Decade to Celebrate

I have often tried to relate my career to a journey. A journey that has been marked with its share of ups and downs. When I am asked which part of my career journey I remember the most, I spontaneously respond – “the part where I am right now”. This has been my response for the last 12 years. My working life at Target India has given me the perfect blend of new opportunities, challenges, avenues for innovation, a great team, work-life balance and loads of fun.

Starting out in a Finance role at Target Sourcing Services (TSS) in Delhi, I was introduced to different cultures and team members from other countries. The learnings from those days are still fresh in my memory. After six years at TSS, I moved to Target India in Bangalore. My new role gave me great learning opportunities and a chance to continue honing my skills It is not easy for a person who has spent his entire life in one city, to move to a new one with his family. Lucky for me, no matter which geography one is in, the Target team member experience is always the same and it is the best a person can get. Target made my move from Delhi to Bangalore very comfortable. I never had to feel the anxiety of walking into a new space and meeting with new people. The experience at both the offices was the same – well-planned and immaculate office spaces and an amazing team that supported me through my initial days.

The leadership at Target India is one of the main reasons why I love working here. Frequent developmental conversations, focus on the growth of every team member, varied work experiences and support at every instance has been the hallmark of leadership here. As a core Finance professional, I would never have dreamt of stepping outside the profession had it not been for the opportunity and encouragement provided by the leadership team at Target.
My current role is in the Indirect Procurement space. My leaders’ confidence in me and their supportiveness encouraged me to take on this role. The hardworking and efficient team that I work with motivates me to come to work each morning energized and leave work even more energized.

Working at Target has been eventful, exciting and fulfilling. The journey continues to excite me. Who would be in a hurry to reach the end, when the journey is so beautiful?
