Thanks for sharing. I haven’t heard of this before

I think it’s more useful for those without a Supply Chain or IE degree or those looking for a refresher. It will probably be a breeze with an IE background. Some clients like it but may not be worth your time.

APICS is great if you want to focus on warehousing / materials management ISM (better recognition in US) and CIPS (better recognition all other countries except US) if you want to focus on procurement There are other resources that are equally good but less recognized as the 2 above.

I was offered a role as an enterprise account executive at a tech company. Base pay is 100K OTE is 200K. I’m pretty nervous because I’ve never been an account executive, but I do have 15 years of sales experience particularly in the field I’m selling into which is real estate. I never thought they’d offer me the job. Is this a fair deal? Do tech companies give equity for these positions? Thanks.
