Indirect Procurement: Your Career Growth Strategy

A virtual conversation with Michelle Varble, Former Procurement Director at United Airlines, and Supply Management Professional and Thought Leader.

Yet, a career in indirect procurement can be equally fascinating. During this session, Michelle discussed some of the most compelling reasons why a career in indirect procurement should be considered and how it offers opportunities for personal and professional growth.
