Why did you choose to work in Procurement?
I’m not sure I chose Procurement, more that Procurement chose me! I am a people person and I love to learn new things. With a penchant for too much detail I fit in well to the job. To work in Procurement you need to have an eye for detail, a dogged nature to never give up until you’ve found that solution that works. I enjoy learning from other people and teaching them about possibility, even if the most probable is right there in front of your face.
The Certificate in Procurement Management from UCC begins this month. Following a successful inaugural year, this year’s session is fully enrolled.
“People buy from people, people sell to people”
In the words of a Forbes advisor “People do business with people they Like”. Appreciation is key in any relationship. Saying “thank you” does not happen enough. This truth applies to personal and professional lives. We like working with people whom we like, whether they are in the same company, or not.
