It is the most beneficial event to attend as an undergraduate. It is the best opportunity you can get to network with top industry executives and get career advice and hopefully even a job or internship.

The NRF Foundation Student Program gave me such valuable insight into the retail industry that I cannot imagine getting from anywhere else, whether it be a school-sanctioned event or public career fair.

The event really is unparalleled in the opportunities it offers students. You have the chance to hear from and talk to people changing the industry, as well as the opportunity to make connections with retail companies. The majority of the companies I am interviewing with are strictly because of the Student Program.

This experience was so beneficial from beginning to end. I learned so much from industry professionals, met so many interesting people from all over and really felt inspired towards my future career endeavors.
