Searching for a company that holds goals and values that align with yours is a task I knew was important to me while I was interviewing for a post-college graduation career. I made it a goal of mine to land at a company that valued culture, encouraged employee growth and development, and had good pay and benefits. While salary may be straightforward, company culture was a harder trait that was not necessarily proved in the first interview. This was the type of thing that had to be experienced, the aspect of a company that couldn’t be fully understood until you were in the midst of it.

The factors that have been listed as reasons for the talent shortage include topics like: baby boomers are reaching retiring age, a general shortage in supply chain education, and, lastly, the supply chain industry has the perception of being boring. Of all the factors that make the most sense to me is the image problem supply chain seems to have.
