Supply Chain Management

Your path to a successful career in Supply Chain Management

As an undergraduate supply chain management student, you are likely looking for the best way to prepare yourself for a successful career. At Harbert College of Business, we understand that the process of career preparation can often be difficult and intimidating, which is why it is so important to take steps now toward long-term success. One strategy for success which is vital to achieving this goal is writing a comprehensive resume that effectively communicates your skills, experiences, and education in the field of supply chain management.

Creating an impactful resume requires emphasis on experiences and abilities that distinguish you from other applicants. To achieve this goal, it is beneficial to communicate specific courses taken or soft skills acquired through related coursework or activities – such as problem solving ability or working in teams – as they showcase your expertise and experience. Including detailed information on the certifications and classes you have taken, along with the initiatives and extracurricular activities you are involved in, will help ensure that recruiters understand your full range of knowledge and abilities relevant to the field of supply chain management.

Before reaching out to your program champion, make sure to have a resume ready for them to review!
