Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP)
Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications

I have a handful of certs and I would say no

When i was in industry everyone wanted to get CPSM certified... in consulting no one gives a crap

Certs are much more of a thing if you work in tech or tech consulting. If you do S&O flavored things people A) don’t care or B) assume you’re covering for having no supply chain real world experience

I found them helpful when I transitioned to industry.

Helped me cut through the consulting bs to understand baseline practices and it also gave me credibility to fight the allegations of not enough experience.

Also I focused more in the logistics side of the world so the certs helped round out my knowledge.

I have an opportunity to join an agency that’s not as well regarded, but I’d be getting paired up with a copywriter friend of mine (along with a promotion+raise).

I should take it, right?
