Export Trade Careers

A healthy 15 percent of American jobs are in the trade industry, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Four main areas of trade exist:

  • Automobile
  • Clothing, accessory, and general merchandise
  • Grocery
  • Wholesale

Experts in trade typically specialize in one area. Although no training program can guarantee future salary or job placement, a year of college education results in an average of $10,000 difference in annual earnings, according to the most recent U.S. Census. Approximately half of those working in either retail or wholesale trade have at least some education past high school. Many colleges and universities offer online education programs in export trade, allowing you to study at your convenience.
