“Thanks to the last two career fairs I’ve attended I’ve landed internships with two major retail operators, H-E-B and Target Corporation. As an undergraduate studying business management, both experiences have had a significant impact on my leadership abilities and personal growth. This summer at Target as an Executive Store intern I primarily worked in the logistics department, but had the opportunity to shadow leaders in the store, as well as lead a team on my own.” – Tyler Werland ’18
