Out of Work Purchasing Agent But A Member of Institute of Supply Management ( ISM ) Stay Involved

Are you looking for work as a purchasing agent or supply chain professional?  If you are still a member of the Institute of Supply Management ( ISM ) don't let your membership run out without staying involved. It might land you the next be supply chain job.

I don't expect you to continue to pay your dues on your own if you have been laid off.  It might not be a bad idea to keep your dues up if you can afford it, but I am aware membership dues are expensive. If you are like me, you are probably used to your employer paying your ISM fees for you. If you do not have a job, this is a steep added expense.

That said, as long as you are a member, keep attending those ISM dinner meetings.  Volunteer on some of their projects too if you can.

Why?  Honestly, above all else, you'll be in contact with other people employed in your field.  Succeed on some projects and you'll get noticed by others.  Even if you don't volunteer on projects, at least attend the free educational dinner meetings. The free dinner meetings are filled with other purchasing, procurement and supply chain professionals that have a job.  These people might be able to give you a lead on a new career.

You will also be able to show prospective employers that you are staying involved with your career path  in spite of being unemployed.
