We sat down with Taryn Stewart to get the scoop on what she's up to at Tuskegee University.
Q: Tell us about yourself. What do you do in supply chain?
My name is Taryn G. Stewart. I am a junior at the Tuskegee University currently studying supply chain management and accounting. I am a member of the Marching Crimson Piper Band, a Tuskegee University Ambassador, a New Student Orientation Leader, as well as Gamma Pi Alpha Sorority Inc. By just being a student studying supply chain, I’ve become more aware of the Supply chain role in everyday life. Right now, I’m just a consumer, but hopefully in the near future I would love to become a planner or work within R&D.
Q: What cool thing are you working on now?
Right now I’m working in TMS(Transportation Management System) and SAP ERP Configuration Phase modules.
Q: How did you get interested in supply chain as a career?
After taking Economics 100 my professor, Dr. Jack Crumbly, reached out to me and talked with me about career opportunities in supply chain and how supply chain majors are needed. I was very pleased to hear this information and did some research on the subject. I learned that supply chain is a very broad field and that there is a place for analytical people like me.
Q: What hobbies do you pursue in your leisure time?
In my leisure time, I like to shop, do arts and crafts, work with graphic designing, eat, and most importantly sleep (although, being a student involved in so many activites, sleep is not always easy to come by).
Q: What topics are you most excited about discussing with other members in Beet Fusion?
I’m excited to talk about my experiences and what I’ve learned thus far in my supply chain classes. I also look forward to networking, and finding out what companies want and need from upcoming graduates in order to one day become an asset to one of those companies.
Q: What supply chain trends of evolution are you anticipating will change your business?
A trend that I believe would change a business and the world is Autonomous Road Transportation. I am very interested in its evolution and I’m eager to see where this trend is going.
