You’d be hard-pressed to find larger scale, higher volume, more successful e-commerce websites than those of Macy’s, Inc. And the force behind those sites is our Acquisition and Retention Marketing group.
Sign on with our Acquisition and Retention Marketing Executive Development Program and you’ll find yourself busy planning and designing Internet campaigns, coordinating with Buyers to collect promotional information and collaborating with Account Managers to maximize weekly marketing campaigns. There’s more, of course. Because interactive is incredibly active.
Our Acquisition and Retention Marketing Executive Development Program is offered at our macys.com offices in San Francisco, CA. Classes start in August.
Professional development begins on day one with a combination of structured, hands-on, and classroom-style learning. During the first phase of the program, you will spend some time with a mentor assigned by your manager to assist in leadership best-practices and help you grow through continuous constructive feedback. You’ll spend the your first few months with your team shadowing and learning. Every month you will meet with your fellow EDP trainees in sharing your experiences and learning leadership and presentation skills from our Learning and Development team. Every month, you will attend the Executive Speaker Series where you will hear an executive or team present on the projects they are currently working on. You will continue to learn every day as you work through problems and projects. Supplemental learning courses are always just clicks away via our virtual Talent Center.
From buying ads and refining search results to negotiating and brokering placement deals and campaigns on third-party websites, all aspects of the Acquisition Marketing team's activity are tied to helping the business deliver against complex traffic, sales, and expense plans. The Acquisition Marketing team works closely with the Site Merchandising and Merchandise Marketing teams to ensure customers are getting the right experience when they land on macys.com and to support sales at the family-of-business (FOB) level.
First things first, you will need a bachelor’s degree from an accredited university by the time you start with us, and a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA is preferred in Marketing, MIS, Business or similar majors.
We’ve also determined a few qualities that we seek in candidates. Intellectual curiosity, a positive attitude, and self-motivation are a great start. Beyond that, you should have a sincere passion for engaging with people—and the communication skills to match. We are also looking for leadership experience that includes professional business ethics, assertiveness, and an aptitude for helping others solve problems. Having a good understanding of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint are key to success in this position. Knowledge of online marketing and account management would be beneficial in this role. To round out your skillset, you should possess strong business acumen, with the ability to analyze data and draw conclusions.
