My previous job also involved purchasing. It's not an easy job actually, you need good negotionation skills to get the best price, you also need some degree of knowledge on the things/items that you are going to buy so that you will select according to the specifications you need. You need to be patient too because at times we encountered decommitment from vendors and we will have to explain to angry clients why there is a delay. Also, you must maintain your personal integrity, being a buyer you have the power which vendor to choose, you must be strong against bribery etc. Overall it's a challenging but at the same time fun job. You will meet a lot of people and gain a few friends.

Hi there! Sounds like you have a nice job. If I may ask, do you mean to say that you are a personal shopper? I do wonder about this kind of job and think that it might be a fun job to have. After all, you end up shopping and not necessarily spending your own money. Well, I wish you the best of luck! Have fun!
