Maurices seeks applicants for student Internship Program in West Fargo store

Maurices, a nationwide young women’s clothing store known for their trendy fashions, is offering a Store Management Internship Program for the eighth consecutive year. This 10-week paid internship opportunity, which focuses on “real world” in-store experience, is available to 60 students nationwide. West Fargo is one of the internship locations.

“This structured training program allows students to take what they have learned in the classroom and put it to use in a practical environment,” said maurices Sr. Vice President of Stores Neil McPhail. Interns participate in store leadership, team coaching, sales generation and motivation, and have an opportunity to interact with maurices home office management.

Over 70 percent of the students who participated in the internship program in 2012 are now working with maurices, with the goal of earning positions as store managers. “These students have invaluable experiences by getting out of the classroom, and maurices benefits from their ideas, youthfulness and enthusiasm. It truly is a win-win program,” said McPhail.

Internships are paid and typically credit based. In addition, each student receives $500 in tuition reimbursement from maurices, a 40 percent discount on clothing, and two of the interns will receive $1,000 scholarships.

Students interested in an internship can inquire in person with Store Manager Melissa Vettel at the West Fargo maurices.
