What Target is looking for in job applicants are those focused on growth -- both that of the corporation and of their own career development. Be prepared to present evidence that you can collaborate as a team member and you also can be a leader.

The organizational culture is high energy, inclusive, and fun. Get a feel for that by spending some time in a Target store and talking with the associates. Likely, you will find them totally engaged in serving "guests" who come to the stores. Also, notice how the facility is designed and merchandise laid out to present a "shopping experience."
