About us:

Target is an iconic brand, a Fortune 50 company and one of America's leading retailers.

Right on pace with Target's distinctive retail brand, Target Finance and Accounting are transforming for the better. As so much more than a financial analyst or a behind-the-scenes number-cruncher, you will be a truly collaborative partner with a seat at the table. You'll bring your unique point of view, experience and passion for the work to your team and internal clients. In Finance, you'll be an integral voice in discussions that lead to Target's unparalleled shopping experience. Your analysis and recommendations will be directly applied to critical business decisions, from sales to operations and beyond.

A role in Financial Planning & Analysis means belonging to a great team of genuine, diverse, courageous and versatile people who put integrity and ethics at the heart of everything they do. Together, you'll drive outstanding financial results by enabling and accelerating Target's strategic execution. You'll nurture influential partnerships with leaders who value your credibility, thanks to the quality and reliability of your insights. To teams across Target, you'll bring your skills for analytical rigor, creative problem-solving and sound decision-making. You'll be an active contributor to cross-functional teams. You'll rise to the challenge of the dynamic retail industry, bringing innovative solutions that have a direct impact on financial and operational direction-setting, merchandising and capital investments and how to best use our resources. All of your good work will help elevate and maintain Target as one of the world's most recognized and best-loved retail brands.

In this 10-week Financial Analyst Development Program (FADP) internship, you'll gain a realistic job preview into the world of Finance at Target and insight into the day-to-day role of a Financial Analyst. You'll apply your knowledge in a project-based internship focused on: technology and property investments, budgeting, sales forecasting, or financial modeling/reporting. We'll be supporting you along the way with extensive training and robust development to help you grow as a strong FADP Intern. This includes exposure to various areas of our Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A) team through job shadows, mentorship, and senior leader/alumni panels. You will manage a project from start to finish, and culminate your summer experience by presenting your results to leadership within your business.
