Rachel Stierwalt, Senior Analyst, Supply Chain Solutions & Analytics, recently represented DSC Logistics at the Supply Chain Management and Logistics Career and Internship Fair sponsored by the University of Illinois, Chicago, School of Business Administration.
Stierwalt spoke to students about DSC’s role in supply chain, described some of the positions available and detailed what the company looks for in prospective candidates.
“The students were very engaged in current events in the industry,” Stierwalt said. “They were particularly interested in the automation space in logistics, and how this will impact the industry moving forward.”
Stierwalt also noted another big topic of interest to students, Visibility and Tableau, something they had been exposed to in their coursework. “This shows how these schools are preparing the next generation of supply chain professionals for the workplace they will soon enter,” she said. “A workplace heavily driven by data analytics and visibility.”
