Through the corporate retail association, I was able to network with many recruiters from many companies & this organization has allowed me to find my way to my passion for buying. My sophomore year, I attended a meeting with TJX companies who owns (TJ Maxx, Homegoods, Marshalls and many more). In this meeting, I learned about TJX as a company, their culture and opportunities including their planning and merchandising internship. I immediately became interested in the internship. Come junior year I applied to the internship and received an official offer to intern for TJX for the summer in Boston. The corporate retail association prepared me for this opportunity by providing me with professional skills as well as providing me with a place to learn about opportunities and interact with recruiters.
