Supply Chain Manager Jobs
Supply Chain Manager Overview
People probably won't know what it means if you tell them you're a Logistician, but if you put it into lay-terms you can say you're a Supply Chain Manager. The job is fast-paced and can be stressful because Supply Chain Managers oversee products from point A, the supplier, to point B, the consumer, and all points in between. Supply Chain Manager jobs entail managing how to acquire a product, distribute it, allocate it and deliver it. Industries such as scientific, technical and professional services, manufacturing and even the federal government hire Supply Chain Managers.
Supply Chain Manager Education
You may be able to find entry-level Supply Chain Manager positions with an associate's degree, but many hiring managers look for applicants who hold bachelor's degrees in supply chain management, business, process engineering or industrial engineering. Previous experience is always a plus, but as businesses globalize the work becomes more complicated, prompting employers to look for those degrees. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that there is a certification Logisticians can obtain that typically isn't required, but having one shows that you have extensive knowledge in supply chain management and are professionally competent.
Supply Chain Manager Job Market
In 2012, there were an estimated 125,900 Supply Chain Manager jobs in the U.S. That's the good news; the even better news is that Logistician employment is expected to grow faster than the average, up 22 percent by 2022. That's a promising outlook for those with the education and skills to be managers and problem solvers in a market that is increasingly moving to a global stage.
Supply Chain Manager Salaries
Even at the low end of the scale, Supply Chain Manager jobs pay fairly well. The lowest 10 percent earn around $45,190, but the average annual salary is almost double at $72,780 in the majority of the industries that employ Logisticians.
