Inventory control deals with managing the inventory of a business and making sure the business always has enough of a given item. Inventory control ensures that as little as possible goes to waste or that the minimum amount necessary is ordered, saving money as well.

You could work for a business, large or small, that works with physical products at any stage, from raw materials to finished products. Your responsibilities could include:

  • Keeping track of item quantities with computer software
  • Tracking shipments
  • Letting buyers know what products need to be ordered
  • Knowing the inventory inside and out and answering customer inquiries about specific items, especially in small businesses

While you don’t need a bachelor’s degree for many inventory positions, it will definitely help you to advance more quickly. You might also look into logistics and supply chain management positions.
