What is ediscovery
the process of obtaining and exchanging evidence in a legal case or investigation. E-discovery is used in the initial phases of litigation when involved parties are required to provide relevant records and evidence related to a case. This process includes obtaining and exchanging electronic data that is sought, located, secured and searched for with the intent of using it as evidence.

I primarily use an application called Relativity

I got into the career via client support. Working on troubleshooting and upgradea to traders/clients laptops. We had to get certain machines off what is called legal hold (directors or ceo laptop needed the hard drive copied and retained, for legal reasons then processed to make the machine okay to rewipe). I did that for 2 yrs.

I started at 80? I make 90 now after 1 year.

For outlook and trajectory, check the below article. I try to lead with articles instead of opinions:

I'd love to hear from any Logisticians or SCM kats. I'm looking at getting a BA or BAS in Business or Business Resources and Tech. Management.

My boss said it'd be beneficial of me to, if I want to work in supply chain, get a BA in Finance, then a master's in SCM. Any validity to that? He's practically guaranteed six-figures when he gets out, and that's the oath that he took.

My background is in supply chain management(did techno-functional ERP support, implementation consulting, and pre-sales).
What's your current work position/industry?
You don't need a master's degree to earn six figures.

If you're already working in a distribution center/warehouse/factory....you don't even need a college degree. Be inquisitive, get to know the IT/tech team, ask questions about the enterprise apps. Ask for more tasks related with that particular enterprise application. Might fukk around and get a raise/promotion. Have the company pay for a paid-training and some certs. If you decide to pursue a business-related bachelor's degree I think you're better off choosing a broader business degree to keep your options open.

Be obsessed with learning. Reach out to local/regional/national groups. A simple google search like "*oracle scm* san diego, ca user group".

I'm a Logistics Specialist in the military. Of the folks in my group at my command (place of business), I'm the parts shipper, and overall transporter, and secondary data analyst for said parts. Essentially, I handle, transport, and stow the high-dollar shyt that the Navy has in it's custody (anything really over $50K).

I've been in for five years, and planning on doing another to get my bachelor's, then dipping immediately afterwards. I was also looking at getting my CSCP, PMP, Black Belt, and maybe the CPIM & CAPM. Idk, I just want three before I leave.

As for college, I noticed that it'd be better to get a broad degree as opposed to a specialized one such as SCM, but would you go Finance or Business? Which is better for the supply field?

Having an accounting degree is like a golden ticket 🎫 right now. Black folks, by far and laege, aren’t interested in accounting. Contrary to what some folks may think but PA firms and accounting departments in general are thirsting for black applicants.

I work in emergency management with a federal agency but have a lot of logistics experience and actually enjoy it. So I will be following. If anyone is interested in emergency management hit me up.

And I have a random Human Resources management degree from a degree mill backed by 21 years in the AF/Army.

I’ve been seeing this a lot lately. It kind of got me hesitant on continuing to pursue it
