Currently a Fellow for Hiring Our Heroes. I will start my terminal leave in December 2020.
Do you have a specific geography that you are looking for employment, if so where? I have some contacts with 3M but they are limited.
Take a look through LinkedIn for people who already work with 3M. I searched "Army 3M Texas" and found 2,300 people who share those things in common. Start by connecting with them and ask if they're willing to share a bit about what makes vets successful at 3M. Start a relationship and a learning journey.
Procurement/Supply Chain/Contracts has been my focus in industry and consulting for some 40 plus years.
Question: How serious are you?
Why limit yourself to a particular type of company?
Are you willing to start at the bottom and learn?
Design a resume emphasizing skills in negotiations/attention to detail/hard work/taking responsibility/ organized thinking/ skills in working with others, etc.
Then apply to more than 20, yes, more than 20 firms for a position in Purchasing/Supply Chain.
Do not turn down offers for an entry level position.
Do not limit your search geographically.
