I have worked for Target for almost six years now, working there a usual 40 hours per week while I'm in school. Originally a cashier, I am now the Entertainment Brand Specialist. I just earned my bachelor's degree in Business Administration this past summer and am starting grad school in a week or so. The big question is, should I be feeling happy about my position? I feel like I should be higher up the food chain at Target, holding a team leader position or ETL or something to the like. What I fear is that becoming a TL or ETL would interfere with my school work. I care very much about my grades and will not allow them to falter because of my work duties. What do you say? Should I be racking my brain out because I haven't found an appropriate TL/ETL job yet? I make over $20,000/yr. at Target right now, doing what I'm doing, and have no debt (4 yrs. of college is all PAID off! and so will 2 yrs. of grad school). I'd love to stay with the company for the rest of my life. My biggest hesitation is should I be higher up the food chain now that I have a bachelor's in B.A. and so many years with Target? My current schedule as the Entertainment Brand Specialist has worked well for me over the past four years while in college. I'm a straight-A student. How should I feel and what should I do, if anything? I don't plan to move away from home, since all my schooling is online and have only so many opportunities for advancement. I'm only 22, on the verge of turning 23 in February. Thanks!
