It's reported that nearly three and a half million manufacturing jobs need to be filled over the next decade. The skills gap is expected to result in 2 million of those jobs remaining unfilled, say supply chain education leaders.

The new APICS Career Center is designed for companies looking to elevate their supply chain through strategic hires, and provides job seekers with easy access to expert advice via career coaching, open positions, as well as courses and other career resources.

“APICS addresses two of the key challenges in supply chain today – developing supply chain talent and improving supply chain performance,” said APICS CEO, Abe Eshkenazi, CSCP, CAE, CPA. “Part of our focus on developing talent is ensuring our APICS professionals are finding the right jobs to utilize their unique skill sets. Whether looking for a new job, needing to expand interview skills, or simply wanting to keep up with the job landscape, the APICS Career Center is a valuable resource for all members of the supply chain management community.”
