Want to work in supply chain? Pathrise has opened a new supply chain track to help you launch your career. Before 2022, we had focused on helping people land tech jobs. We had to turn away plenty of fellowship requests from aspiring supply chain professionals. Now that we’ve onboarded supply chain mentors with a tested curriculum, we’re excited to help people land their dream job in this in-demand field.
Supply chains are everywhere. So are the jobs. This means supply chain professionals can choose to work in an industry they’re especially passionate about, like fashion or food. Besides diversity in supply chain industries and roles, no one day at work will be exactly the same. Supply chain challenges are unique and typically and may offer the chance to travel and build new skills often.
r mentorship and interview prep, with technical workshops on the side to sharpen specific skills and technologies. In other words, we help fellows land a supply chain job rather than just teaching them skills.
Our supply chain program is remote and flexible. Fellows have about 10 hours work per week, with 1-on-1 meetings scheduled as needed. Expert mentors help fellows optimize their resumes, perfect their online profiles, source opportunities, and network as effectively as possible. Fellows also participate in rigorous mock interview sessions and meet weekly for reflections to improve after real interviews. Optional workshops are also available to develop specific skills to succeed in supply chain and talent.
Fellows participate in workshops to ace interviews and master key technical skills. Since interviews often include estimation case questions, we teach fellows how to do “napkin math” quickly to show their thought process while answering technical supply chain questions. We take fellows through each phase of a typical “case” interview, as well as common interview questions that will almost certainly be asked. Interviewers’ jaws drop when fellows seem to know the questions before the interviewer even asks.
We offer a job guarantee, so fellows pay nothing unless they land a great supply chain job. Our supply chain mentors hail from top companies like Pepsi, and General Motors. One of our newest mentors, Jasmine Young, currently works at Gap Inc. Previously working for Alexander Wang and Glossier, Jasmine has focused on redefining fashion and beauty operations due to supply chain disruptions, developments in technology, and changes in consumer behavior.
Even though job-seekers generally understand that starting salary shapes lifetime earnings, few even try to negotiate a higher salary. Negotiation can be intimidating. Although negotiation is totally normal and expected, candidates may fear that negotiation will sour employers’ opinion of them, or even get their offer retracted. Some fellows want to negotiate their salary, but fall into a “gotcha” question during the interview process that makes negotiation difficult later on.
Our mentors handle the entire negotiation process. On average, we increase fellows salary 10-20% through negotiation alone. We’ve never had a fellow’s offer retracted.
If you would like to work 1-on-1 with any one of our expert mentors to land your dream job in supply chain at your dream salary, join Pathrise. We offer a 2-week free trial so you can see if the program is a good fit without committing.
