After being assigned to the Supply Chain Management team for the Social Media Marketing Topics class, I felt conflicted. All I could think, “Supply Chain Management. Cool. What’s that!?” Similar to what you’re thinking, too? Phew! Glad to know I’m not alone.

After doing a little research, I found myself wishing I were a supply chain management major.  As a senior, it’s a little late for me to make the switch but for prospective students, freshmen and sophomores who are undeclared or unfulfilled by your current major, here’s three reasons why you should consider Supply Chain Management.

1. Two words – Job Security. As a soon-to-be graduate, take my word, job security means a heck of a lot more to me than it ever has before. According to the major’s AU page, four out of five jobs in northeastern Ohio and three out of five in the whole country fall under supply chain. If that’s not job security, I don’t know what is!

2. $78,775. That’s the average career salary of jobs in the supply chain management field. According to Ohio Means Success, the supply chain management major can lead to high paying and high growth jobs in Ohio as it is a part of the Buckeye Top Fifty Careers. Sign me up! 

3. Options – and lots of them! The supply chain job market offers a lot of variety when it comes to careers. Dream job alert! Purchasing managers, logisticians, retail buyers, operations managers, financial analysts and transportation coordinators are just a few of the jobs one could possess in this field.

Miss France

Miss France
Name: Delphine Wespiser
Age: 19
Country: France
Hometown:
Online Persona: Facebook (link) / Twitter (link)

Background: Little information could be found about Miss France. She’s not currently sure if she will be participating in Miss Universe as it is dependent upon the date of the competition. Her online presence seemed to be very limited as it was hard to find any information on her, let alone a wikipedia page. As with every other contestant I have researched, there is no English present on her social media platforms.

Miss Bolivia

Miss Bolivia
Name: Yessica Mounton Gianella
Age: 24
Country: Boliva
Online Persona: Facebook (link)

Background: Yessica Gianella is fluent in English and is currently in college for Public Relations. She has quite the background in competitions as she has been competing since she was a child. Her first major win was back in 2010 when she was awarded the “Goddess of Fortune” title before winning the Miss Bolivia 2011 title. Upon searching for her twitter, I found only one account matching her name but there were no tweets associated with it. Like other contestants I have researched, her Facebook was not in English. I found it quite interesting she didn’t have too many likes on her facebook page nor was there any English, despite the fact she is fluent in it.
