I've been interning over the summer at UPS for the past couple of months now and I would very much like to continue working at the company. Specifically, I have aspirations to become a manager in 10-20 years time. In the meantime, I was wondering what I needed to do to prepare myself for such a role.
Before I continue, I wanted to note that I am aware with the current policies on overly broad questions or company specific questions:
I am hoping that my question would be closer to this one that wasn't closed:
But instead as a software engineer for a software company, working in a logistics company.
I've done some digging on my own and came across a bullet list of what I think does a pretty good job on the 'track' to management and I was wondering what the community at the workplace would like to add or expand upon.
If I were to put myself on the list, I'd think I am in a pre-pre-pre supervisory position as an intern, who has a foot in the company, more like a toe, but not yet fully gone through by going full time in an entry-level position.
Please and thank you for taking the time to respond with your suggestions and ideas.
Edit: I recently graduated from University in May with a triple major in BA Political Science, BA Economics and BS in Management and Business Economics. I currently am employed at a very large american company as a summer intern with an end date of 2016-11-01. I'd like to continue working for UPS and have reached out to managers that I have networked and met during my time here. However with peak season (holiday deliveries) I know they are very busy and wouldn't have time to answer my questions. I wanted to reach out to the workplace community to get a better grasp as to what one needs to do to prepare oneself to become a manager.
