Recommitting to Your Supply Chain Management Career

by Richard C. Wilson on May 7, 2013

We all have times in our careers when we lose interest – lose momentum.  If you have found that you have lost your commitment to your supply chain management career and are interested in recommitting yourself, here are some tips to help you get refocused and recommitted to your career.

  1. Remember what you loved about your career and focus on that aspect.  What attracted to you to your career? Think about what you love about your job in supply chain management and then focus on that aspect for a while to help you re-ignite your love for your career.
  2. Read. A great way to get engaged in your supply chain management career is to read up on the latest news and developments within the supply chain management field. Read journals, books, and magazine to help you get excited about your career again.
  3. Network.  Sometime you need to meet some new supply chain management professionals to help you feel engaged and interested in your career again. Join a professional organization, get involved in discussion groups and forums online, and network in your community and online to become more active in the supply chain management field.
  4. Find a mentor. If you don’t have a mentor, get one. You will find that having someone to talk with that has worked in the field longer, or has moved up into a job that you are interested in within the supply chain management field, can help you get excited about your career again and have you engaged in your career development in no time.

It is easy to get into a rut. Every supply chain management professional is likely to come to a time in their career where they are not feeling committed and engaged. If that is where you are, just doing a few things to get you excited again about your supply chain management career can be the best thing you can do for yourself and your future in supply chain management.
