ABOUT AEO:
AEO, Inc. is a leader in the teen retail space, creating a product assortment with the customer at top of mind season-by-season. Our Merchants and Planners combine business and fashion to drive a 3 billion dollar business, playing an integral role throughout the product life cycle. The company offers internship and full-time training programs in both areas to grow the future leaders of the business.

PROGRAM SUMMARY:
To provide an opportunity for sophomores to learn about these roles prior to the 2020-2021 campus recruiting season, we are hosting a 3 day experience at our corporate headquarters in Pittsburgh, PA. Participants learn about the company and culture through classes, one-on-one shadows and projects – all while gaining advice and insight on the application and hiring process, learning tips and tricks to navigate from start-to-finish.   This is an unpaid externship and selection and/or participation in the program does not create an employment relationship with AEO.  However, AEO does coordinate and pays for accommodations, meals and travel. 

If you are ready to apply your classes and coursework in a corporate retail environment, apply today!
