Industry Panel Part 4: Supply Chain and Technology

Industry Panel Part 4: Supply Chain and Technology

A conversation to get inside the brains of those on the other end of an interview in the Supply Chain and Technology industries.

This session will dive into the difference in priorities when looking to hire from the perspectives of different levels of management or different company environments, such as a start-up versus an established company, or having an external recruiter versus an internal recruitment process. Preferences in a candidate’s personality type or education level when hiring may change industry to industry, company to company but this session will aim to inform GMP members on how to navigate these priorities while searching for employment in the Supply Chaon and Technology Industries.
