Answer:

The first step to beginning a logistics career is to research the different available positions and understand their differences. For example, logistics managers handle supplier and carrier contracts, while inventory managers look at sales data and create inventory forecasts. Next, learn the different degree requirements for your career of choice. While some positions require a graduate degree, others simply demand a bachelor's degree. Different certificates, including those offered by the APICS, may be beneficial (or required).

While creating a resume, highlight the skills that fit the requirements of your desired job. If you have already had experience in inventory management, for example, be sure to emphasize that on your resume, if applying for a similar position. If you wish to work with a recruiter, find one with extensive experience in supply chain and logistics. They will be the best suited to provide you with many different opportunities, giving you job flexibility.
