Import Export

The international market represents 95 percent of consumers and 80 percent of the world's purchasing power, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce. In 2012, more than 304,000 U.S. companies exported goods. Of those, more than 97 percent are identified as small to medium companies employing 500 or fewer workers. The forces that determine the demand for workers in import-export careers are complex. Because so many markets are involved and international trade agreements can change, the outlook for import-export professionals is volatile.
