A fresh hair cut,new suit and a handful of self created networking cards led me on a journey of the first of many possibilities.
Arriving in front of a large set of doors I paused to give myself a once over,checked my cards and made sure I had my free pass. I looked around at all of the professional supply chain peers entering the event - no worries you got this...you are just like them the only difference is your pass doesn't have a company listed under your name...lets do this ...lets go get a job to add to your pass. Not only did I find possible job opportunities I met an editor who asked me if I would like to share my journey. I could hardly sit still the whole train ride home. A few months later my article was published and distributed across Canada.
One voice message left on an HR Managers extension led to my re-entry into the workforce.
The networking card I had created along with a power point power presentation and visio timeline along with a trivia quiz led to a three month entry level customer service position. I was almost done my probation period when an internal supply chain position became available.
One follow up email led to my third article being published. When I first started in supply chain over 10 years ago there was little if any contact with the finance department.
