As of June 2012, Macy’s had hired over 1,000 college students for its executive leadership program and internship pipeline. However, large department stores oftentimes struggle to attract the candidates who would be the best fits for their management programs. Department stores offer career advancement opportunities for fresh college grads, as well as competitive starting salaries, but many students don’t take these opportunities as seriously as other job options.

    Submissions will be graded on the following criteria:
  • Meets Deliverables
