Quarantine. Facemasks. Hand sanitizer. Work from home. Solitude.
What do these words have in common? Well a year ago, you might have answered this and said “absolutely nothing”. We all know that today, these words are the theme of our lives.
The year 2020 has been a unique time for all of us. Unfortunately, a large subset of Americans have lost their jobs, whether it be to lay-offs or furloughs. As I watched friends and loved ones deal with these struggles, I felt helpless. How can I support those in need? I’m not a front line worker, I’m not a public servant, and I’m not at all in the medical industry. Can I do anything at all?
Fortunately for me, Nick was in the same position of struggling to help those around us. Being business minded, one chart stuck out to both of us…
Does this chart look familiar? It’s the U.S. unemployment chart for the past 12 months. COVID-19 shocked the world in April 2020. This left a hole in many lives. With this chart in mind, Nick and I wanted to create an environment for job-seekers to gain their livelihoods back.
Introduce, Supply Chain Tomorrow, an online job board specific to the Supply Chain Management industry. Supply Chain Tomorrow’s mission has been clear from the start; to connect people with organizations within the Supply Chain Management industry by offering the technology, information, and resources required to do so.
We are all familiar with online job boards. Hundreds exist from very niche websites, to broad job boards that cover every job under the sun. Supply Chain Tomorrow sits right in the middle. While Supply Chain Management is a specific industry, it’s breadth of offerings is large.
Supply Chain Management is more than just trucks driving goods around the country, it’s the complete process flow of goods and services from raw materials to end user products. This includes everything from raw material management, manufacturing, warehousing, transportation, and everything in between.
Think about that for a moment…all of the different facets to Supply Chain Management include every touch point and support function to make and deliver a product to your door. How many people do you think were involved in getting your couch into your living room, the mattress on your bed, or the phone in your hand? Now look back at the unemployment chart…millions of these touch labor and support function individuals are out of work, meaning you and I cannot get the products we would like, when we would like them.
Fortunately, since April of 2020, the jobs have been slowly coming back, meaning organizations are hiring again. The question then becomes, where does one find these job openings?
The answer to this question is the exact reason we created Supply Chain Tomorrow. We created an environment specific to this vital industry to allow organizations the platform to post jobs to a captive audience of job seekers who possess the desirable qualifications to make the Supply Chain Management industry flourish once again.
During these trying times, I encourage job seekers and internship hunters to create an account and post their resume. Hiring organizations, contact us directly to learn how we can help you post your open positions as they come to light.
Together, we can help bring the American workforce back better than ever!
