NRF Foundation RISE Up - Retailer


RISE Up was developed in collaboration with retailers

The NRF Foundation’s RISE Up curriculum and exams are industry-recognized, so when hiring managers see the credential listed, they know that candidate is prepared for important roles in stores and beyond.

The NRF Foundation is proud to partner with five retailers to offer interview opportunities to people who have earned RISE Up credentials.

Burlington, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack and The Home Depot recognize that RISE Up credential holders have built essential skills that have prepared them for careers in retail. These companies have job openings nationwide, and they’re committed to offering interviews to all RISE Up credential holders who met their company’s pre-employment requirements.
