Anyone here take APICS CSCP? Is it worth it? What type of role are you in?

Will be taking exam at the end of the month. Currently working for a firm focused on procurement. Projects consist of P2P tech implementations and sourcing. In my opinion, unless you plan to transition to an industry role or are in a pure supply chain consulting role, I find the total cost for the CSCP hard to justify. If I could do it again, I would have pursued a lean six sigma green belt or expanded my skills in python. My degree is in SCM; the CSCP feels like a surface level review of topics I learned in college.

Hello all,

I am looking for specific insight into interviewing at Square for a supply analyst role. I am not worried about interviewing so much as I am the technical assessment. Does anyone have any advice or knowledge of the interview process they can provide? I have learned excel and data analysis mostly by self instruction. I just want to be sure I am not missing anything.

I am a recent graduate in Information System Management. I am currently working as a Business Analyst and trying to break into Cyber Security. I have completed a bootcamp and an internship in Cyber Security. I also have a CEH and LinkedIn learning cyber security certificate. Can you help to find a entry/associate/graduate hiring position in Cyber Security? Thank you so much!

Hello! I'm currently a product designer at a startup and we're currently hiring for a Lead Product Designer. I've been helping my director write up an interview format and was wondering if there was anything different about lead designer interviews? When I was going through the interview process at my company I had the following steps: phone screen, hiring manager screen, onsite (portfolio review, design collab, stakeholder collab, eng collab). Any additional info will be much appreciated!
