RSI’s Transportation Executive Search Firm team specializes in specific careers. By determining which career path a candidate wants to take, and whether or not they have what it takes to succeed in such a career, RSI can successfully wrap up the search for your new transportation professional.

While having basic knowledge of science, mechanics, business and industrial operations is required in our candidates, we also look for the following:

Team Work:

People in transportation must have people skills, and much of the duties within the industry require a good amount of team work. The network of coworkers formed within transportation companies is crucial to the success of all employees, and it makes the work more fun. If a candidate doesn’t have what it takes to be a good team player, they probably aren’t right for the industry.

Technologically Savvy:

Transportation these days is possibly almost solely because of technology. Technology has changed the face of the industry, with 3D graphics and special software helping employees arrange the placement of billions of tons of freight onboard a ship, or plan global shipping routes or monitor shipments by satellite. Without technology, the industry wouldn’t have the tracking performance that makes the everyday within the industry easier.

Ability to Travel:

As you might expect, employees of the transportation industry travel quite a bit, and our candidates must have the ability to travel when we need them to. This is considered a blessing to some, as it gives them the opportunity to see the world, but for others, it can be a major downfall, because that means that they’ll be away from home, family and friends. For jobs such as plane, train or ship pilot, they’ll definitely have to travel. However, for those worried about leaving loved ones behind, family members are often times welcome for free.

Ability to Work Long Hours:

On top of having to travel quite a bit, the transportation industry is very time consuming, even for those who stay put. This is a 24.7 industry, and as a result, the job can be strenuous. People at the corporate level talk about 12-hour days that keep them in the office until all hours of the night, while people in operations actually have to work over night. Many insiders complain about the long days and nights, but if a candidate is more of a night person, this could be the industry for them.

Ability to Handle Stress:

Jobs in this industry come with a lot of stress, as managing huge operations, solving problems on short notice and multitasking can make some people want to pull their hair out. The deadlines also usually come fast, and are inflexible, and the pressure to meet them—and therefore close a million dollar deal—can be too much for the weak of heart to handle. If a candidate can’t keep their cool, they’re not right for the job.
