In an economic context governed by a multitude of supply chains, logistics is gaining more importance every day. As a true foundation of the Quebec economy, it brings together more than a hundred thousand workers and generates a GDP of several billion dollars according to the government.
Fed Supply, a recruitment agency for transport and logistics jobs, gives you 6 good reasons to work in this attractive field.
1. Your level of education doesn't matter
When it comes to logistics, recruiters and company managers know that your educational background and level of training are of little importance for many of the industry's jobs. Indeed, this is a field that requires above all skills and qualities that can be acquired through your career.
We can mention in particular:
- Good knowledge of computers for the manipulation of software;
- Good sense of organization;
- Willingness to work in a team;
- Essential rigour to remain attentive to every detail.
If you are at the start of your career or in the process of reconversion, rely on your skills and highlight them to recruiters. The logistics sector in Quebec is in demand and you can quickly land a job.
2. The career choice is very wide
Logistics jobs are varied and involve different sectors. Any business related to the production and delivery of goods requires a logistics department.
As a component of the supply chain, logistics is linked to other sectors, such as import-export, customer service and transportation. If you work in a warehouse and would like to move into a transportation or a customer service job one day, your experience will be a strong asset in understanding future issues.
3. An industry in constant recruitment
Given the importance of the supply chain, the logistics industry is constantly recruiting. Logistics missions are essential: companies cannot improve and optimize the process of routing goods, goods consumed on a daily basis, without it.
Whether in Quebec or even internationally, working in logistics opens up a wide range of possibilities. If it is in your plans to work abroad one day, this sector is perfectly suited for this life-changing perspective.
4. You can evolve quickly
The indisputable advantage of the supply chain, and logistics in particular, is that it's entirely possible to start out with a job that's accessible to anyone, a job with no particular qualifications, and work your way up. Many people have started at the bottom of the ladder and have gone on to become a logistics director or other management position.
This requires, as in everything, effort and determination. But the experience you gain is highly valued in logistics, since it is the knowledge of your own supply chain that will enable you to manage it better and gain the confidence of your employer to do so.
5. Teamwork is important
It may sound strange to cite teamwork as an important reason to work in logistics, but this industry really allows you to enjoy the results of joint efforts.
Generally, teams in logistics stick together, are tight-knit, and this both promotes the well-being of each team member but also develops interpersonal skills that will always be useful to you, whether at work or in your personal life.
6. Energizing and rewarding jobs
Many of the jobs in logistics are physical and allow you to perform many different tasks. These are often challenging jobs, where you can be on the go and feel truly useful.
Also, you can choose to maximize your hours. It is often possible to work nights or weekends if you wish. This increases your income and allows you to achieve a higher level of financial stability.
