You’ll Have Lots of Opportunity: One of the best things you can do for yourself is choose a career with limitless potential. Logistics is one of those careers. In fact, careers in logistics are projected to grow 26% between 2010 and 2020 – faster than average growth for any profession. What that means for you is lots of opportunity to do what you want, and to have success doing it.
Job Stability: Stability might sound like a gymnastics skill, but it’s really important to your future career. Logistics isn’t going anywhere – the U.S. alone spent 1.6 trillion in 2018!– which means you’ll have a job until you’re ready to retire.
Gain Experience in International Business: How many people are lucky enough to travel the world – and get paid doing it?! Logisticians, for one. The growing world economy means companies will expand more and more, and that means logistics experts will be tapped to visit far-flung, often exotic places to do business.
You’ll Learn New Languages: If you like foreign languages, you’ll be even more valuable as a logistician. In logistics, you often have to talk with people who don’t speak English: drivers, customs agents, and others around the world. Stretch those language skills
You Can Live Anywhere: Do you have dreams of moving to the Big City? Or maybe even living abroad? No problem. The world’s logistics companies have offices throughout their headquarter countries and around the globe, so find the right position and you can live almost anywhere. (Deserted island not included.)
You’ll Be an Innovator: If you love to innovate and think big, logistics will allow you to test your theories and prove your instincts correct. If you can think of new ways to improve transportation, use technology, or promote sustainability, there’s a logistics company willing to pay you for your ideas.
Every Day Will Be a New Adventure: Logistics is a dynamic, ever-changing world. You can work with teeny tiny startups (where you’ll have major responsibilities) or huge, multinational corporations. And everyday, you’ll do something different: today, you’ll figure out how to get a monster machine from Mexico to Canada; tomorrow, you’ll be shipping supplies to the site of the upcoming Olympics.
