4 Common Career Paths For a Buyer

Senior Buyer

The job of senior buyers, or also known as purchasing agents, is to meet the material needs of an organization. They are responsible for finding suppliers, arranging the distribution to several retail outlets, and supervising other purchasing agents. They also look for new product streams and establish procurement strategies. Senior buyers typically begin their careers as assistant buyers or junior purchasing agents. Most employers usually prefer those with college degrees in marketing, business, and economics.

Planner/Buyer

The role of buyers/planners is to ensure that office materials and equipment are well-supplied within their organization. They decide and purchase the materials needed for use or resale by their organization. They are responsible for evaluating prospective suppliers based on their cost, product quality, and delivery times. They are also the ones who negotiate contracts specifying the payment terms, price, and delivery schedules. Most employers prefer their buyer to have earned a bachelor's degree with a major in operations management or business management.

Assistant Manager

An assistant manager provides assistance and support to the direct manager in ensuring that the business runs smoothly with guaranteed satisfaction. An associate manager helps organize daily projects and manages employees to make sure that tasks are being done in a timely and accurate manner. Assistant managers are also expected to develop a good relationship with the whole workforce and clients to contribute to a successful and healthy workplace. An assistant manager is also required to present practical strategies for business growth, monitor daily operations, and communicate with clients for any possible suggestions and complaints.

Supervisor

Supervisors are responsible for overseeing the daily functions of employees in a specific team, department, or even a work shift. They create work schedules, organize work processes and workflows, train new hires, provide necessary reports related to the team function and the employees, monitor and evaluate employee performance, and ensure that goals of the specific team or department are met. When needed, supervisors also provide guidance to employees in terms of their career or even personal challenges. They also help in fostering harmonious work relationships by resolving interpersonal conflicts at work. To be successful in their role, they must have leadership skills, time management skills, decision-making capabilities, analytical skills, and problem-solving skills.

Illustrated Career Paths For a Buyer

Buyer Jobs FAQs

Can a buyer make 100k?

Yes, you can make $100,000 per year as a buyer. While possible, it is unlikely to earn over $100k as a buyer because even higher-paid positions do not typically earn more than $79,000 per year. The average annual salary for a buyer is $54,724. For example, buyers in West Virginia whose salaries are in the 90th percentile earn an average salary of $101,000.

Learn more about this question

How do I get a job as a buyer?

To get a job as a buyer, you will need a minimum of a high school diploma and some prior work experience in sales or retail. Some buyers earn a bachelor's degree in business, merchandising, economics, or applied sciences. This degree will help you land a higher-paying position.

If you're interested in becoming a farming buyer, for instance, it helps to have a bachelor's degree in agriculture.

Most buyers, however, will receive on-the-job training for a few months to one year after they are hired. In addition, there are certifications offered, such as through the Institute for Supply Management, to help refine a buyer's specialized skills as you progress in your career.

Other Certifications Include:

  • Certified Purchasing Professional (CPP)

  • Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP)

  • Certified Professional Public Buyer (CPPB)

  • Certified Public Purchasing Officer (CPPO)

Learn more about this question

Is being a buyer a good career?

Yes, being a buyer is a good career. A buyer can earn around $80,000 a year, depending on the company and location. In addition, being a buyer can be very exciting and rewarding work.

As a buyer, you may get to travel to different countries to look at showrooms and manufacturers. Or to scout and source new products for purchase. Traveling allows buyers the opportunity to experience new places and people.

Another aspect of being a buyer that people find exciting is shopping. A buyer must maintain and update product inventory for consumer satisfaction. Also, a buyer must determine if new products can satisfy customers and whether they align with their company or organization.

However, with so much excitement also comes stress. Working as a buyer can be pretty stressful at times. Specifically, trying to balance inventory levels and dealing with the staff, making sure everyone is happy.

Being a professional buyer can be a glamorous job in many respects, but the glitter and glitz cloud the hard work and keen intellect required to make it in this competitive field.

Learn more about this question

What qualifications do you need to be a buyer?

The qualifications you need to become a buyer include some educational background and work experience. The more educational credentials you have, the less work experience is needed and vise versa.

If you only have a high school diploma, for example, you will most likely need to work at least five to ten years before being considered for a buyer position. However, if you have a bachelor's degree in merchandising, marketing, or advertising, you may only need around one to four years of work experience.

Most employers provide buyers with extensive on-the-job training that can last several months. There are also certifications offered through the Institute for Supply Management and various other organizations.
