I have proved to be efficient and budget-conscious during the past decade of working as a procurement engineer. It has been my duty to facilitate while keeping in mind that lesser prices and better deals are needed always. This aim has been met with good relations with stockists and manufacturers. My amicable personality and good negotiation skills have helped me become a better professional. I want to work for a company where my skills can be improved further and in turn, the company benefits from it too.
