" Graduating with liberal arts degrees in Economics and Psychology, I did not have much knowledge or experience about supply chain. I was attracted to the rotational Business Analyst program at C&S because it allowed me to get involved in three different departments within the organization before deciding where I would fit best. For my first rotation, I am working with the Continuous Improvement team where I assist in implementing new systems and methodologies that aid in company-wide development. My experiences thus far have more than fulfilled my expectations prior to joining the company. I would recommend C&S and the BA program to graduates hoping to be quickly immersed in a supply-chain company and receive challenging and rewarding responsibilities.

" The Business Analyst Program at C&S provides young professionals with an opportunity to develop a career while working in different departments across the company. Joining the program with other recent graduates has made it an easy adjustment from college and a great way to meet people and develop relationships. My current role is in Vendor & Transportation Supply Chain (VTSC). VTSC integrates with all aspects of the supply chain to improve and ensure smooth processes. Since my first day, I have been encouraged to learn about different departments, such as Procurement, Transportation and Operations, in order to fully understand the business. My ideas and opinions are valued and respected which makes C&S a great work environment. My dual major in Supply Chain Management and Retail Management at Syracuse has prepared me for my career and I’m excited to continue to implement what I’ve learned in the classroom to my different rotations at C&S!
