The R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase made a stop at Little Miami High School, on Thursday, February 9, 2017, to attend the College and Career Fair. We were there to discuss careers in logistics with the students and help them with their career path choices.
Why Choose a Logistics Career?
High school students are at a critical stage in life and some are deciding whether or not they plan to attend college and if so, where that may be. It is also time for them to consider a career path, and these major decisions can feel daunting. That’s where the Hometown Showcase can help. Logistics jobs are expected to grow 22 percent a year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which is twice the 11 percent average growth rate when compared to other occupations. Logistics and transportation is more than truck driving, although R+L Carriers has career opportunities nationwide for drivers! Think about the other steps it takes to get a shipment from point A to point B. There’s a career associated with each of those steps. A few of the careers in logistics include:

R+L Carriers was delighted to participate in The College and Career Fair and have the opportunity to speak with students and parents about the various career paths with R+L Carriers. It may have been cold, but weather didn’t stop students and parents from walking outside to experience the Hometown Hauler. Visitors of the trailer were able to talk to R+L representatives as well as watch videos and read material about R+L and the transportation industry.
Delivering opportunities to students across America through community engagement is the purpose of the R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase. If you are interested in having our team and hauler at your next career fair, sporting event or community event, let’s get rolling and contact us today!
