The Value of Team

In November of 2014, I hadn’t worked a regular job in 27 years. I’d been a musician, a novelist, a web designer, an independent business owner – often all at the same time. I made my own hours, chose my own clients, and answered to no one. However, though I made a living, it was not a steady one. There were slow times and bare patches, and the fall of 2014 had been slower and barer than most. With Christmas coming, and two children expecting presents, my wife (who already worked full time) and I agreed that I would pick up some seasonal work to get us through the holidays. I hadn’t punched a clock since I quit delivering pizzas in the spring of 1987. And that was in Massachusetts. I’d never held a job in Minnesota. Neither did I want one. But I was willing to grit my teeth […]

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 […]
