- When there's more demand than there is supply, prices go up, that's one of the basic rules of economics. And it's exactly what's happening right now in the job market for supply chain professionals. But supply chain is a big field, so in order to map out your path you need to understand your options and make some choices about where you really want to go. My name is Daniel Stanton and they call me Mr. Supply Chain. I've worked with private companies and non-profit associations, government organizations, and even the military. Along the way I've also done a lot of recruiting and academic research and I've learned that supply chains can be kind of confusing. And that makes it hard for people to know where to start their careers. The cool thing is that every company has a supply chain and share holders and executives are focusing more and more on how their supply chains are performing. So companies are creating new positions and hiring more people with supply chain skills. That means the demand for these professionals is increasing. I've designed this LinkedIn learning course to help you understand supply chains in terms of job opportunities. So that you can decide what you should be doing today and set your goals for the future. I want to help put you in control so that you can manage your own supply chain career. Ready? Let's do this.
