"Facing today’s increasing global competition and the finance crisis, supply chain management is becoming more and more critical to international companies like Siemens. In Siemens, Supply Chain Management Initiatives will generate substantial additional value and accelerate the establishment of a world-class SCOM function within the sectors and the company. Being an outstanding student majoring in SCOM with adequate experiences, I applied for a Supply Chain Management position in Siemens and finally got the offer. Presently, I am contributing what I learned to the company and growing with Siemens."
