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

D is eating me alive. I’m so stressed by D, I can’t even pursue my personal goals anymore. Was approached by Mck, turned it down because it was a low role and lower pay and they don’t work in my specialization. The recruiter is interested in pushing me to something higher but I’m mentally fried and can’t imagine prepping cases and adding interview stress to my already 12 hr days and weekly migraines. Have also dropped the ball on my side business and education goals. I’m the project linchpin 😩
