Careers in the Transportation Operations Pathway are really on the move! These are the people that drive or pilot the vehicles that transport people and freight. Equally important to this pathway are the support people who ensure that any cargo transport is safe, secure, and on time.
Overall growth in the national economy is expected to require significant increases in the use of air, rail and ship transportation operations. In the airline industry, keen competition is projected for most of the occupations as applicants exceed job Openings. Persons seeking employment as Flight Attendants with a college degree or experience in dealing with the public should find favorable job opportunities. Recently, both the transit and trucking industries have reported difficulties in attracting qualified applicants. Individuals interested in intercity or long-distance positions should experience ample opportunities.
