At Target, Talent is Homegrown

Good employees are hard to find, but at Target we have a unique hiring advantage. A significant portion of our management team came up through the ranks, starting as graduate students at McDaniel College.

Target's Graduate Program with McDaniel CollegeTarget has an innovative partnership with McDaniel to provide a Master’s Degree in Human Services Management. While students are completing this two-year program, they work at Target as live-in Community Living Managers, providing care for our clients in one of our eight community-based homes or in Target’s Apartment Program in Montgomery County.

During this internship, students receive a scholarship for 75% of their graduate tuition, a generous stipend, health benefits, and room and board. When they graduate, these individuals are prepared for leadership positions in community-based human services agencies. In other words, they are perfectly trained for management roles at Target! We believe in hiring and promoting from within. Interested in learning more?
