Supply chain management (SCM) professionals have been known to complain that they're expected to know something about everything. But it appears that expectation isn't entirely unjustified. In June, a supply chain consultant demonstrated on national television that perhaps SCM professionals do know something about everything.
Julia Collins, who holds a master's degree in engineering in logistics and supply chain management from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and an undergrad degree in art history from Wellesley College (now there's a diverse range of interests), won 20 consecutive games on the TV show "Jeopardy," the second-longest winning streak in the game's history. She was number three in terms of winnings, with a grand total of more than $428,000.
According to Collins' LinkedIn profile, she previously was a senior consultant at Capgemini Consulting, a global supply planner at Zebra Technologies, and an import associate at Crate & Barrel. The 31-year-old Chicago-area resident is currently seeking a position in supply chain management.
