I Like to Move It Move It...

By Joe Tillman | 06/21/2012 | 5:55 AM

Getting startedBored? Tired? Not sure of your direction? Need advice?

Want to meet other professionals in the logistics and supply chain industry?

Want to develop and improve your leadership, communication, and team building skills?

All of these things can be yours today for the low, low price of TIME.

Opportunities abound for those who want to get involved in the logistics/supply chain industry. Investing your time to participate in industry events whether on the national, regional or local level will pay off. You’ll build relationships, guide and provide direction to how the industry thinks about different topics, especially those you’re passionate about.

Working with a committee for a national professional organization like American Society of Transportation and Logistics, Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals and the Warehousing Education and Research Council are great ways to gain practical experience that your job may not provide.

CSCMP is looking for young professionals to join its Young Professionals Committee. This is a great opportunity for your voice to be heard.

WERCouncils near you are looking for young professionals. You can help plan programs, facilitate meetings or tours and interact with leaders in the industry.

Just don’t forget to Move it!

I’d love your feedback – and would love your help in sharing questions and comments about being a young professional. If you have a question, comment or feedback, please send me an email to [email protected].  The blog on the last Wednesday of each month will be a question and answer session from those that I receive from you, my audience. If I use your question, I will send you a free copy of a book mentioned in that month’s posts.
