    I am keen to make a successful career into Supply chain management.
    First of all I would like to thank you for creating this blog as this opens a new avenue for inquisitive aspirants like me to communicate with successful professionals like you.
    Over the years my experience has covered areas including Operations Management, Supply Chain Management, Purchase, Procurement, Business Development, Market Research, Database /
    Knowledge Management, Compliance and Independently handling short term and medium term projects.

    Now I am doing Full time Post Graduation in Supply Chain Management. I want to specialize in Forecasting.
    Once one of my friend asked me about supply chain management, what are career options , Which are job profile & departments into SCM that one can look to work after completions of course, what is an average salary of professionals in SCM, which is the highest paying field into supply chain, as most of the working individuals are not aware of supply chain in india, but I think in coming year SCM industry will grow a lot. more and more companies will hire trained manpower for SCM & firms will innovate effective SCM to compete with each other.
    Sir, I request you to please add following things to my knowledge
    a) Are their any other field or job profile or departments into SCM apart from Forecasting, Retail Logistics, Shipping Logistics, Warehousing management, Inventory management and Purchase or procurement in which I can specialize?
    b) please enlighten me about the average salary in all the above fields (highest to Lowest in order).
