After the pandemic, supply chain suddenly becomes a hot topic. That’s part of the reason I’m joining MSCA Program. Coming from no supply chain background to studying in Rutgers, and now being a Co Op in JNJ, I was confused at one time. Now I’ve explored a way of study and entering supply chain field. If you are also from non supply chain related background to this program, please feel free to contact me and I’m more than happy to answer questions in choosing courses and career preparation.

As a Peer Mentor, I hope to help my fellow students achieve the same success that I’ve found as a student at Rutgers Business School. RBS and the SCM department have given me many opportunities to build and cultivate my brand and develop skills relevant to my ideal career field. Working as a Peer Mentor, I want to be there for those who need help navigating the complicated and often frustrating job-hunting process. I have participated in countless career fairs, job interviews and submitted hundreds of applications, and I know what it takes to make it out of the process with an offer letter. I hope to help my fellow students through this process, providing advice on the job search, interviews, and finding the right career. I look forward to working with everyone.

I joined the program in 2020, one of the most unprecedented, uncertain, and challenging years. But this was the year when I finally discovered my career interests and goals. It was also the year when I pushed myself the most to pursue what I wanted. Surprisingly, as someone with Economics and Statistics background, I started my first job in the supply chain sector. The Master of Supply Chain Analytics program is diverse enough to encourage students with different backgrounds to explore the supply chain. As a Peer Mentor, I want to be able to share my personal experience of goal setting and career development with my fellow students and encourage others to pursue their goals and believe in themselves. I was lucky enough to have so much help and support when I was unsure. It is my pleasure, working as a Peer Mentor, to help my fellow students when they need the support.
