Operations Job Cards

Operations personnel are generally responsible for the administrative tasks necessary to keep a company humming along smoothly. In other words, operations managers and associates do the dirty work to allow the designers, engineers and business aspects of the company to thrive. They often manage both human and financial resources for the company, as well as take charge of any organizational overhauls and improvements a company will undergo in its lifespan.

Since you'll find operations managers at all types of companies, it can often be difficult for operations candidates to find an industry that suits their interests and experience.
