However, in the labour-starved market of Vancouver, British Columbia, the hitch in career change does not seem to be imperative to the need of talents.

Nevertheless, when determination and enthusiasm along with the below behaviors present in the effort in a new career field, the result may be various as chance may grab you instead of you grab the chance.

  • Attitude: To enter the logistics workforce is not hard, but it is the attitude to keep one in the field. Hard work may not be the smartest way but the most reliable way to prove one’s reliability and endurance.
  • Improve Skill: Opportunities are given to present one’s ability, but continued to grow with the job is very important and goes a long way in the field.
