Supply Chain Career Pathways

Supply Chain Management will take a regional holistic and synergistic approach. The work will include Ohio Means Jobs (OMJ), employers and educators at both high school and college levels. We will work together to define current and emerging business training needs. This data will be used to design educational courses for high schools and colleges so that future employees will graduate from high school or college ready to fill jobs. Some early examples of this approach being successful are Sinclair Community College, Gateway Community & Technical College in KY, Cincinnati State in OH, Tri-State Transportation and Logistics Council and OMJ in Warren County. While still in the early stages, these programs are very promising. These institutions have designed courses that will provide people with skills needed to fill entry-level jobs that will lead to higher paying jobs. 

Ongoing, designed courses will provide students with an educational process that leads to more people being available to fill emerging jobs. High School students could get jobs in TD&L with advancement opportunities. Further, if a student decides to go on to college, their credits from high school could potentially be applied to a degree in the Supply Chain field. 

Approach

The Supply Chain Career Pathway will work with and include business members, government agencies, chambers of commerce, port authorities and educational institutions. We will focus on building a comprehensive talent development pathway so employers will have the talent they need to fill positions. Our goal is to establish a process that allows potential employees to gain skills they need to get good paying jobs with career advancement opportunity.
