We hope that everyone has had a great start to the year so far! Now that we’re getting close to halfway through our first month, we thought we would feature some great infographics that we thought would motivate you for a great start to your year in the logistics and supply chain industry.
1 The Supply Chain Job Hunt
If you or anyone you know is looking to get into the logistics and supply chain industry. Here’s a great infographic that gives you the breakdown from how people in the industry maintained their position and what they thought about the current job market. Not surprisingly, in-person networking and word of mouth were the most common ways to land a position, but thankfully online job sites and postings from the employer’s sites show great outcomes as well. This is a great sign as it shows that our industry is adapting to today’s trends in recruitment strategies.
