What is it like to work as a Buyer or generally within Purchasing/Procurement?

I'm considering switching over to the field (entry-level), but wanted to gather as much information as possible.
Would love to hear:
1) how you got started;
2) what's it's really like;
3) whether there is a lot of demand (i.e. is it easy or hard to break into the field);
4) how did you pick the industry in which you operate (ex: electronics, fashion, etc)?
In as far as I've gathered virtually every industry has a position of this nature. I've been also told to "find one industry and stick to it," presumably because it'll expand my network/expertise; perhaps it's best to cross this bridge later.
