|New England Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition|
Supply Chain Career Planning In Times of Economic
The topics covered at the 2009 New England Supply Chain
Conference should alert everyone that your career, job expectations, training,
and education, are based on an outdated 20-year- old model. We speak of
cross-functional skills, globalization of requirements, a major
recession/economic-downturn (and the associated very high unemployment rate),
and worry about the impact of the fewer jobs and loss of opportunities.
Therefore, many of us are unsure of the viability of our chosen profession. But
it is important to keep in mind that these changing trends should ultimately be
positive, with an eventually upturning economy, and a broader job content
providing some upfront challenges, while at the same time providing better
opportunities for those who are ready and prepared.
The current downturn in the market forces all of us to rethink where we’ve been and what lies ahead. No job is guaranteed, but you can make sure you’re prepared for the next promotion, job search or trend. The direct benefit of career planning is most important during these turbulent times. This presentation should help everyone achieve his or her ultimate career goals.
