Hi there global citizen! If you’re here, you’re probably interested in a career in Global Trade. Then again, there’s a very good chance you’re wondering what that even means.
What is Global Trade? According to Investopedia, it is used interchangeably with the phrase International Trade. By their definition, international trade or global trade “is the exchange of goods and services between countries.”
But what does that mean?
There’s so much more to a career in global trade than simply getting goods from place to place. It’s the logistics team that gets items from point A to point B. It’s the translation jobs that helps people in other countries understand the messages your employer needs to convey. It’s the accountant managing the money and transactions for multiple accounts. It’s the city official working to ensure safe passage for the truck drivers and pilots transporting goods. It’s even the marketing, advertising, and copywriters that help create the websites that are used to attract customers and sell goods.
Working in global trade essentially can mean any position that has something to do with a step in the supply chain and the movement of goods and services. If any of this sounds good to you, you’re in the right place.
