Is EMS experience required to work in EMS? Almost always...YES!
StepBeyond has done hundreds of searches in EMS and only look for EMS experience. Why? Because EMS is different!
StepBeyond wants our clients to succeed. The BEST way to succeed is to have employees who understand your business! Why do people hire candidates with Low Odds of success?
It amazes me how often I see EMS hire non-EMS employees. When I see resumes with 1 year or less at an EMS that came from outside EMS I shake my head. They leave because they don't like EMS, or they get let go because they "just don't get it".
What jobs are MUST HAVE EMS experience? In my experience:
Any P&L Related Job must know how the margins work.
Any Customer Facing role must understand the customer and their demands
Any production related job to respond to the customer's urgency and demands
Any supply chain related job!!!
Most Materials jobs.
Any Business Development Job - Must get selling a "Solutions" that takes months or years!
Oh HECK!...Just hire EMS experience for everything...even HR, they should understand EMS is different and not try to hire from pharma or grocery LOL
