About us:

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

In Finance, you will 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 merchandising and beyond.

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.
