Walgreens, the nation's premier retail drugstore, has opportunities nationwide. With 7,000 stores planned
by the year 2010, we're creating opportunities for talented, ambitious individuals to be ready to contribute
to future success. So, if you're a motivated, enthusiastic, people-oriented person with a knack for
organization and who thrives in the fast-paced world of retail management, we want to talk to you.

Why Walgreens? Walgreens is America's best-known, largest-volume, most-trusted pharmacy retailer. We lead
the U.S. chain drugstore industry in sales, store growth, and profits. We're also one of the nation's largest retailers
overall — fourteenth largest to be exact — and one of its most progressive and successful companies.

Founded in 1901, Walgreens serves more than 4 million customers daily and each store averages approximately
$8.9 million in annual sales. In 2008, sales reached $59 billion marking our 34th consecutive year of record sales
and earnings. Walgreens has employment opportunities available in our Retail Stores, Corporate Office,
Distribution Centers & Walgreens Health Services division.

Ten weeks that could change your future! At Walgreens, you have the best of both worlds: the training, support
and resources of one of America's largest retail organizations behind you, plus the encouragement to be a true
entrepreneur. Because we want you to succeed in your retail career, we've created a comprehensive, step-by-step
retail management training program that will equip you to become a Walgreens store manager, and from there —
depending on your career goals — to move into higher levels of retail management at Walgreens.

        junior and senior years in school, exposes students to management skills and a full range of retail

        responsibilities, merchandising, advertising, inventory, bookkeeping, and human resources.
    •   Training includes research projects with on-the-job training. Interns are expected to complete written
        projects and research topics.
    •   By the end of your ten-week internship, you'll know just what it means to manage a Walgreens store.
    •   It’s also an opportunity for us to seek exceptional students, prior to their senior year of college, to train for
        future management consideration.
