Transportation and Warehousing Jobs Women Don’t Consider

By Susan Aaron, Monster Learning Coach

While women have held support jobs in transportation and warehousing for decades, many careers in these fields have been so male-dominated that they don’t occur to women. “Schools and society don’t move women toward those jobs,” says Deborah Cutler-Ortiz, director of National Programs and Policy for Wider Opportunities for Women. Nontraditional occupations for women in transportation and warehousing include road repair, mechanic, forklift operator, warehouse supervisor, logistics manager and, of course, drivers. And the pay can be good. Learn about the options and how to get moving on a career that could be right for you.
