At Saks Fifth Avenue, we have made a strong commitment to the training and development of our executives. In fact, we offer a unique opportunity to college seniors who have great executive potential. For those who are passionate about fashion and are looking for a fast-paced, dynamic environment, we enlist them in our Executive Excellence program.
The program, which focuses on merchandising and store management, places our new executives on a distinctive career path. As the executives work directly with merchants, planners and store management, they increase their expertise in many areas. They also develop valuable skills while absorbing the company culture. Through a combination of classroom instruction and on-the-job experience, they are able to learn from the best: our senior merchants and store managers – and to use this knowledge as the foundation of a highly fulfilling career.
