Send us Your Career Questions!

December 8, 2016

 

At Argentus, we’re always looking to get our network more involved in the content we produce. Our blog isn’t a one-way street, and we’re not only here to share info with our readers. We see it as more of a conversation. Through efforts like guest blogging and interviews, we hope to provide opportunities for thought leaders and professionals in Supply Chain and Procurement to share their expertise and experiences.

We get a fair amount of questions from candidates in these fields (and others) about a whole smorgasbord of career topics: from job interviews, to how to structure a resume, to how to negotiate salary, and all kinds of others. So we’re looking to start a new series on our blog called. If you have a question – any question at all – about your career, whether you’re in Supply Chain or not, we want to hear from you. We’ll post your question and our recruiters’ answer on our blog so that everyone in our network can share in the advice.

We have decades of combined recruitment experience, so we’ve seen it all. We’ve seen candidates lose out on a job opportunity because they wouldn’t take their hat off in an interview. We’ve helped people who felt like they couldn’t leave their job and find a new opportunity because they were being paid too much (imagine). We’ve helped people get back into the workforce who have been out of work for years. We even remember what recruitment was like before the Internet (gasp). 

We’re here to help. Here are a few examples of the types of questions we’d love to answer:

  • I’m working in Supply Chain, but I’m looking to gain more cross-functional experience and move into a leadership role. How can I do that?
  • I just graduated from a Supply Chain program at university/college, and don’t have much work experience. What’s the best way to break into the field?

But we’re also happy to answer more general questions:

  • How do I successfully negotiate a raise?
  • I’ve been in the same job for more than 10 years and I feel stuck. How can I branch out and get back into the job hunt in the social media era?
  • My employment history has several gaps due to illness and family. How can I explain this on a resume and in job interviews?

Those are a few examples, but certainly any career or Supply Chain-related question is fair game. So let’s hear your questions!

5 Supply Chain Management Myths and the Truth Behind Them

Like any other industry, supply chain management comes with its own myths and misconceptions that can easily mislead many businesses.
