For instance, you’ll have immediate access to Macy’s Talent Center, a unique and invaluable career development resource. Use it to set your objectives, guide your training, track your goals and accomplishments, and review your progress and evaluations. Think of it as a combination career GPS and "check-in" app.
Learning is another essential to advancement. And we’ll see that you’ll have lots of opportunity to build your knowledge through virtual workshops, videos, books, podcasts, you name it.
As you’d expect, practical experience is also critical to developing your career at Macy’s. Naturally, you’ll get plenty of it day-to-day, on the job, but you can pick up even more through extras like job shadowing, job rotation, special projects, and stretch assignments.
Lastly and especially, don’t discount the value of your own enthusiastic curiosity. Bring it with you to Macy’s and turn it loose. Use it to tap into informational interviews, find a mentor, talk with colleagues about their approach to tasks and challenges, probe for feedback on your performance, choices and which skill sets need honing. By fully tapping your existing resources, the more and faster you’ll advance.
After all, it’s your career. Why not take it someplace?
The people are real. The places are real. The photos are real. Making this your perfect opportunity to go behind the scenes and get a genuine glimpse of Macy’s inner workings.
