Kohl's Department Store
Stacia Murray, Class of 2003

I completed my internship at Kohl’s Department Store in Sioux Falls, SD. I would recommend a Kohl’s Department Store internship for anyone that is interested in working in a fast-paced retail environment with a growing company. This internship offered an opportunity that I believe was priceless. While I have learned much during my last four years of college, the chance to get a taste of the "real world" was a great opportunity. I had the chance to put many of the things that we learned in class to real use. In addition, It felt good to be completely in charge of my learning experience. By being able to choose what books to read and what goals were important to me, I feel that I learned more in the last few months than I did in any of my years in the classroom.

As a result of my internship experience, I feel that I am better prepared for the future. I learned many details about the company during this internship. I had the opportunity to work with the management team, the loss prevention staff, merchandising specialists, and others. In addition, I was involved in the store’s current remodeling process. Because of my wonderful internship experience, I believe that completing an internship in your field choice is an opportunity that every college student should have before graduation.
