I am in Customer Logistics and Supply Chain Management in Memphis. Graduated from UT in SCM as well for any undergrads looking needing any help
Haha you and I can share clients.
I like to consider myself a professional dirt bag / ski bum, but my engineering job makes it hard to do what I love. One of these days.
The journey to becoming an Ironman
BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
I work in PR, communications, ticket sales, marketing, digital, advertising, promotion and social at Bristol Motor Speedway and Dragway.
I remember in 2003 I was at a small HQ outside Baghdad, I was wearing my Tennessee hoodie and about 10 different people yelled out " Screw Tennessee " how I loved to be hated, some were Miami fans, Gator fans and a few other rival fans who we made miserable for a long time. Man I miss those days.
I am a water plant operator for the city
Environmental Researcher at Texas A&M -- Specialize in what happens under your feet and in your surface water -- BS,MS from UT and PhD at A&M
Yes, as a matter of fact we do. I never worked in processing on the engineering resin side of the business, but walking through the warehouse, I've seen several varieties of PPG's ChopVantage.
Which Clinic? We currently take both of our kids to the Jackson Clinic off of Oil Well.
We made it. Almost all of PPG's chopped glass used in the US comes from the plant in Shelby,NC. +1
1) Keep/get your GPA as high as you can. Your GPA WILL be the difference in thousands of dollars in salary in your first job.
2) Try your best to do a logistics/scm related internship. 6 months if possible, summer intern at the least.
3) Look into gaining supply chain credentials. APICS offers the CPIM certification. It's one of the most sought after credentials in supply chain professionals. It's not easy. 5 exams. APICS will pay for your first exam if you're a student member. Look into it. Not many students at your level are working toward that. It's a great way to differentiate yourself early on. And it's a great learning opportunity.
4) When graduation time comes be flexible and be willing to relocate where the jobs and opportunities are. If you insist on only staying in one area/region you could really hinder your advancement.
5) Be aware that if you go into operations right after school you will be on night shift. Realize it's not the end of the world and that you're not missing out on life by having to work nights for a while. See point 4: be flexible.
6) Finally, enjoy college and learning while you're in school, but know that once you've graduated and are in the working world no one gives a jack sh** about where you went to school or how well you did there. So come into an organization like a sponge and not a know-it-all.
My advice to you. Hope it helps.
Good to know!
I can't say with 100% confidence because I don't work in that area of the plant, but I'd venture to guess that some of your glass ends up in the polymer rifle accessories and military eyewear that our customers make with our product.
