Employment opportunities :
You will start as a junior buyer or supply chain specialist, and after a dozen of months in the field you may become a category manager or a supply chain manager – an alternative is to start as a junior consultant, but beware of acquiring operational credibility. In companies of significant size, you will very soon manage a team, be in charge of a significant budget, and lead projects.
Bear in mind that you need to acquire not only in-depth expertise in your field, but also wide enterprise culture and common language. Purchasing and supply chain management are typically two functions in which, on top of the obvious specific experience, young professionals can participate immediately in various projects in contact with every other function inside the enterprise, and with many partners outside. The exact opposite of narrow-minded routine : after a few years you may find other jobs, in other domains.
