Executive Interview Essay

2558 words - 10 pages

Target - District Team LeaderI honestly thought about who I should interview. I thought about doing it with someone who was not in a field that I wish to pursue for my future career. I even thought about well maybe this would be a good way to try something new, since I am a person who tends to go with something safe. I feel like I am not that adventurous, but then I started to do my research and found out some things.I came to find that I wanted to interview two people. The first person came to my mind was with Target Executive Market Buyer. My goal was eventually to become Buyer for Target and who else would be better to receive information from then that person, but my problem was the Market Buyer is station from Target headquarters. The thing was that Headquarters is in Minneapolis, Minnesota, so there was no one I was going to be able to get a face to face interview. There went one interviewee.I also took a minute and thought that this informational interview is not all lost. Because I have applied to become a Market Buyer Intern this summer in Minneapolis, Minnesota at headquarters. I am crossing my fingers and hope that I will be one of the lucky candidates that will be selected for this excellent internship. So, if I get the position I will take the time when I am out there to interview the Executive Market Buyer.Then, my next idea came to me. I love their product and thought what a great company this could be if I worked for them. I wanted to interview any top management of Victoria Secrets Company. The same problem arisen with the location. Victoria Secrets headquarters is in New York. Hopefully, one day when I am in New York I will get the chance to interview one of the top management. I know that even after this class is over I will still try to get a phone informational interview. I would like to know what it took for them to reach the top of such a competitive market.When all my choices failed I decided to go back with my old tradition roots and thought that sense I am going to be working with Target when I graduate maybe I should ask my information interview to be with someone that would help me reach the top and give me some information that would help me get there. So, I came to the conclusion with the District Team Leader.A District Team Leader is a person who is in charge of six to twelve Target stores. They work closely with the STL (Store Team Leader) and watch the development of their district. Their job has many great responsibilities. What a better way to get information on a position that I would like to attain one day. Some of the reasons why I wanted to interview someone in this position were because I know this is a position that I could reach in my career somewhere down the line. It is a position that is not far out there and in my arms reach. I know that with hard work and dedication I could get this position and in the near future I will be needed to work closely to with District Team Leader.I decided to interview a...
