  7. No matter what someone studies—whether it’s something as broad as English or as specific as Supply Chain Management—nobody ever feels quite ready to enter the workforce until they actually do it. Getting that first real job is the bridge between the life of a college student and the life of a thriving professional. And luckily, for those interested in the field of supply chain, GE Appliances offers an opportunity to do just that, before you even graduate, through their Supply Chain Co-op program. One assignment tasks students with managing teams during the night-shift at different GE Appliances’ factories. We caught up with Rafé and Matt who told us about their experience, and how it helped launch their careers. Solving Problems In The Supply Chain—One Project At A Time Shortly after beginning the co-op, Matt quickly found himself fine-tuning the processes that led to slow-downs on the factory floor. One of his projects helped drivers more efficiently bring their trucks to the dock. To the untrained ear, this might not sound like a high-impact project, but small changes in process, when repeated thousands of times, lead to major increases in productivity—and, ultimately, a better cost-to-revenue ratio. That’s what supply chain is all about. As Rafé said, “It may not sound like much, but we were most proud of the fact that we established process and discipline on our own.” Don’t let their humility fool you. In addition to the wide-reaching changes they were able to make, both Rafé and Matt were given management responsibilities as demanding as many senior leadership roles. Learn In Real Time, By Managing Real People It’s one of the biggest challenges—but also the biggest opportunity—of the co-op: managing real people, many of whom are older and more experienced than you are. Rafé and Matt, as leaders on the night-shift, were tasked with the safety, efficiency, and management of their business area’s team. This even included stuff like approving timecards. Learning to do this was a little bit of “trial by fire,” Rafé says. After some initial classroom training opportunities, like a frontline leadership course provided by GE Appliances, much of the learning was done on the fly. The program’s hands-off style definitely contributed to quicker learning and professional development, though, says Matt. “I was very impressed with how much I learned in a short time frame during my co-ops,” he tells us. “The most important thing that I learned during my first few co-ops was to ask questions. That is why you are there…to learn. I asked questions to my colleagues in the office, the operators on the floor, my assignment leaders, and everyone in between both to learn the skills needed for my job and also to simply grow as a professional.” Graduating To The Supply Chain Development Program Both Matt and Rafé thrived in their co-op roles, and after graduation they were invited to join full-time as members of the Supply Chain Development Program. This puts them on a track to become supply chain leaders at the company in just a few short years. While the skills they learned in school are certainly essential in their new roles, the co-ops gave them the self-assurance they needed to take the next step. “Throughout the journey, I solved problems with multiple functions, developed relationships, and made an impact on my team,” Matt says. “Looking back, I truly feel that this co-op improved my confidence in the workforce tenfold.” Want to start on your own path to supply chain success?

  18. Becoming a real estate agent can be a rewarding experience. Lucrative job, flexible working hours, becoming your own boss, plus the opportunity to meet and network with a diverse clientele. What’s not to like. However, starting and growing a real estate business ain’t for the faint of heart. Industry experts estimate that 87% of real estate businesses fail within the first 5 years. But if you have what it takes, now might just be the perfect time to become a real estate agent. Why? Shifting winds are changing the housing market. Earlier this year, long-term mortgage rates slipped for the first time since Feb 2018. As buyers take advantage of the lower rates, it’s not ‘business as usual’ for real estate agents. So how do you start a career as a real estate agent? Here is our step-by-step guide. Step 1: Get Licensed The very first step in becoming a real estate agent is to get licensed. The states require aspiring agents to take pre-licensing training from a certified institution before sitting for the licensing exam. Once you’ve passed the pre-licensing training, you become eligible to sit for the main licensing exam. The exam covers many areas, including the principles governing the real estate business and the legal aspects of the business. Step 2: Consider Joining NAR A license gives you the right to sell real estate property. However, you cannot call yourself a realtor until you’ve joined the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and agreed to abide by their rules. While joining NAR is not mandatory, being able to call yourself a realtor can add some credibility to you as a real estate agent. Moreover, doing so will give you access to a variety of real estate tools, including real estate data, research & statistics, as well as discounted programs geared towards helping you succeed in business.

Step 3: Choose a Brokerage New real estate agents are required to work with a supervisory broker for at least 2 years after getting a license. These are companies (brokers) licensed by the state to oversee real estate transactions and ensure you are adhering to the laid down legal and ethical standards. Once you’ve gained enough experience, you could also apply for a license to become a real estate broker. Step 4: Develop Your Professional Image In real estate, your professional image and reputation matters, and people will make a quick judgment call on whether you’re a good fit based on your story. Start by creating a compelling sales bio that will make the reader see you as a qualified pro. Your sales bio should tell your story. It should be backed with personality while including the key, yet fun facts that will make the reader want to interact with you on a personal and professional level. Your image is also conveyed by the way you dress, speak, respond to others, etc. To that end, consider hiring a professional photographer to take a professional photo of you that will be shared on your website, social networks, and in all marketing materials. Don’t hesitate to refer to online resources to receive advice and get inspired by your fellow agents’ creative ideas. Step 5: Build a Contacts List and Prepare to Meet Your First Client As a new real estate agent, your first contacts will probably be your friends and family. You can start by creating a list of all your contacts and putting them in a database. Then devise ways to reach out to buyers through word of mouth, social media, blogging, and attending public/community events. View the full article
