We know it isn’t always easy to find quality internships that not only pay, but that also offer you meaningful opportunities to make a contribution. But it could be a lot easier for you after reading this.
Our philosophy on internships is that they provide a wonderful opportunity for us to get acquainted. This is your chance to apply your classroom learning to the business of life, and to pursue interests that may lead to long-term potential growth opportunities. At the same time, we will have an opportunity to get to know you, your skills, your outlook, your level of energy - and your ability to thrive in an organisation like ours.
Over the course of a 9-12 week paid internship, you will explore the dynamics of retailing in a supportive, nurturing and challenging setting. The largest number of our internships occur in the summer and begin in June, although internships are available throughout the year. Our intention is to give you the chance to develop your skills in a fast-paced environment outside of academia, where you can gain experience that will form the basis of future career decisions. All of our interns are encouraged to be involved in the company’s community initiatives.
Some of our internships are on the front lines - that can teach you experientially the dynamics of customer interaction and satisfying consumer demand. You’ll be part of a high-performance team; interact with the buying office, operations, human resources and customer service; create exciting merchandise presentations, understand the competition and learn what it takes to be the best.
You’ll develop through hands-on learning in team interaction, buying, planning, advertising and sales promotion. You’ll work with our planners, and help understand consumer trends in order to identify potential hot sellers and key items. You may have an opportunity to visit the markets and meet with vendors.
In either case, all interns work on exciting and expansive retailing projects and present their results to the company’s executives.
