The Retail Society

6 members of the Retail Society posing with Albert Gator.

The primary purpose of the Retail Society is to develop a strong networking system and to educate students interested in seeking internships and careers in retailing. This is achieved through constant contact with knowledgeable, experienced students and with information sessions which allow recruiters to discuss their companies and opportunities.


The Retail Society brings in guest speakers from a variety of retailers to discuss their jobs and internship programs with the organization. The society is also an outlet for anyone interested in going through the job or internship search, providing students with information to help them to be successful.
