MINNEAPOLIS Target was the highest-ranked retailer BusinessWeek’s Best Places to Launch a Career survey. The company was ranked 14th out of 119 companies, followed by Macy’s (ranked #56), Walgreen's (ranked #79), Kohl's (ranked #94), Abercrombie & Fitch (ranked #98) and Sears (ranked #110), respectively.

We continuously strive to attract, retain and develop the best talent for our stores, distribution centers and headquarters locations, said Tim Curoe, vice president, talent acquisition. In todays challenging economic environment, graduates want to work for a strong company with a great passion for ongoing development and training both of which they will find at Target. In addition, our strongly held commitment to community giving and sustainability further solidifies why many potential team members view Target as an employer of choice. 

The Best Places to Launch a Career ranking is based on three separate surveys: a BusinessWeek survey of career-services directors at U.S. colleges; a survey of 40,000 U.S. college students conducted by Universum USA, a Philadelphia research company; and a BusinessWeek poll of the employers themselves.
