If I Lived Closer, I’d Apply for This in a Heartbeat

I’d love to be a wholesale buyer; I think I’d do well, too. However, from the full job description for this, they’re looking as much at the materials handling part of the work as they are the selecting of quantities to order, which is no doubt partially determined through the marketing department. Besides, they probably have an algorithm that determines inventory minimums and maximums, and I tend to work on instinct! (Ironic since as I’m writing this I’m in a Twitter exchange with an author whose book is going to be distributed by DCC in Canada and we’re discussing inventory levels.)
