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.
