If you left procurement, what profession would you choose to work in?

Posted on May 2, 2018


As a follow-up to my post regarding a survey which found that if they had to do it over again 50 percent of procurement pros would have gone into another profession, I wanted to find out what profession they would choose? Based on my initial research it appears that a fair number of former procurement people became real estate agents. Are you surprised?

“Not surprising in that real estate agents sometimes “fall into it” just as some procurement agents “fall into it”. Also commonality in the role of agent: “a person who acts on behalf of another person or group.” It is a mid-career change less disruptive than some.” – Harold Good, IBM Futurist

If you were to go into another profession what would it be?
