I currently work in indirect procurement and don’t really like it. What are other types of roles can I apply for where my procurement skills will be recognizable as transferable? 4 years post grad experience and very varied background with category management, sales operations, some marketing and events in my internships as well. I have a lot of transferable skills, but recruiters and hiring managers are only interested in me for procurement roles. TIA

There are many other roles that would be a good fit for someone with procurement skills. One option could be to become a buyer for a company. This role would involve working with suppliers to find the best prices and terms for the products that the company needs. Another option could be to become a purchasing agent. This role would involve working with suppliers to negotiate contracts and place orders for the products that the company needs.

Reading your career path you have the profile for procurement management, I don't know how the market is for this type of job position, but I think it is the one that best fits because you have knowledge in several areas at the same time.

There are a few other options that you could explore outside of procurement. Sales operations roles are very similar to procurement, but may be a more natural fit for your skillset. Additionally, marketing and event planning roles can also utilize your skillset in a different way and may be more appealing to you. Ultimately, it's important to find a role that utilizes your skillset and makes you happy.

It sounds like you are looking for a new role outside of procurement. Your skills are definitely transferable, but you may need to do a little more explaining to hiring managers about how your skills will be applicable in other roles. Try tailoring your resume and cover letter to specifically highlight the skills that would be most relevant for the role you are applying for. You could also consider networking with people in other departments to learn more about their roles and how your skills could be transferred.
