What is the next step for a Buyer working in O&G purchasing MRO materials for a major operator?
A little background information on me:
R11; Graduated in 2012 with an Economics degree and was trying to do law school, but was not motivated at all.
– Went back to school for another undergrad degree in Supply Chain Logistics and Technology in 2014 and completed it end of 2015 (summa cum laude).
– During my last 6 months I landed a Procurement Intern position with a large EPC company.
After graduating, I was offered a logistics position, but turned it down and went for a Jr. Buyer position with a 3rd party procurement company. I have been here 3.5 years and am now a Buyer making $56.5k. I just recently started looking for a new job since my company is pretty small and the next step up would be Senior Buyer, but there’s no need for one right now on any of our accounts. I’ve applied for a few procurement positions, but keep getting denied and I’m not sure why when I have the experience. I am in Texas if it makes any difference. I have also been considering the CPSM certification.
