How would you describe your duties?

I am an Account Planner in the RetailPULSE organization supporting the Target Team in Minneapolis, MN. I create in-store execution plans (work orders) for the Execution Team in RetailPULSE. These plans leverage buyer and SAE objectives on sales plans, new item launches, distribution, shelving and merchandising. RetailPULSE ensures we deliver the First Moment of Truth everyday in store.

What has been your most exciting project so far?

As a recent new hire, I was involved in the customer planning meetings for the Olay Pro-X Tier 1 launch. I created and delivered the retail work orders to meet the SAE's objectives. This was an extremely exciting project as it helped build my skill sets and teach me how to effectively leverage multi-functional resources to deliver a Best in Class launch.

What's the coolest thing that's ever happened to you simply because you work at P&G?

I was offered a job by another Company before I even started with P&G purely because they had heard thatP&G had offered me a job.
