The first action step I need to complete in order to get my desired outcome is to complete the certifications required by CVS. There are approximately 150 courses / modules I need to complete. As I do them I need to take a test to verify my understanding of the material. After all are complete I can begin the next step. My completion goal for these courses is December 31, 2012. Step/Action Item + Completion Date #2 :   My second step in the action process is to attend 12 weeks of full time classes. During these classes they teach us leadership and time management skills that go beyond what we are able to read about in the previous courses. We also role play and do mock paperwork to insure we are capable of completing it all correctly. My completion goal for these classes is March 31, 2013. My 40 th Birthday!!! Step/Action Item + Completion Date #3 :   The third and final step in the process is 6 weeks as an apprentice with another store manager. During this time I will become the acting store manager with the store manager overseeing what I do. The manager will watch me to make sure I am following procedures and am up to running a store on my own. The process can be extended if I

need more training. If I don’t need additional training, I will be assigned my own store at the end of the 6 weeks. My completion goal for this step is May 15, 2013. Long-Term Career Goal  (approximately 3-5 years):  I.  What is this career goal, and why is it important to you ( minimum  five  complete  sentences )? My long term career goal is to work in the CVS corporate office as a category manager. A category manager plays a key role in deciding which products should be carried in their specified section of all CVS stores. The main purpose of this job is to be responsible for negotiating with manufacturers for priority placement of products. Each manufacturer negotiates a yearly price with CVS in order to have their particular products placed on a certain shelf within the category. The better visible the product is to the customer the higher the premium that is paid. Before the price can be negotiated the category manager must insure that should an agreement be reached there is in fact room for that product in the location being requested. If there is not room then the products may be rearranged to make them fit. The rearranging can be done a few ways. One way is that multiple facings of a CVS brand product are condensed down. Another way to make room is to allow another manufactures contract for the space to run out. Now a new contract for more money can be negotiated and the products swap placement on the shelves. I took part in implementing one of these switches last week with my project job. Suave body wash moved to the bottom shelf and Nivea body wash moved up into its place, 2 shelves from the top. In order to do this and make it all fit I had to increase one facing of a CVS

product to 2 on the bottom shelf and decrease a CVS product to one facing on the now Nivea shelf.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
