WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE CCC?



FEATURED CAREER OF THE WEEK

LOGISTICIAN



What They Do:
Logisticians analyze and coordinate an organization’s supply chain—the system that moves a product from supplier to consumer. They manage the entire life cycle of a product, which includes how a product is acquired, allocated, and delivered.

Work Environment:
Logisticians work in almost every industry. Some logisticians work in the logistical department of a company, and others work for firms that specialize in logistical work, such as freight-shipping companies. The job can be stressful because logistical work is fast-paced. 

How to Become One:
A bachelor’s degree is typically required for most positions. In some cases, related work experience may substitute for education. Many logisticians have a bachelor’s degree in business, systems engineering, or supply chain management.

Pay:
The median annual wage for logisticians was $74,590 in May 2017. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $44,820, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $120,120.

Classes are small and, with no designated end time, can run as long as a teacher needs. Each month, students get a four-and-a-half day Block Break to recharge before starting a new course. In total, students will take eight classes a year. When not in class, students can experience all the Colorado landscape has to offer. CC is located in Colorado Springs at the base of Pikes Peak, where students can hike, bike and climb. In addition, the student Outdoor Recreation Committee facilitates excursions such as backpacking, cross-country skiing, kayaking and ice climbing.
