Hello,

Congratulations on recently completing your MBA! Those are some great career options! First, I would really map out what is it that you would be interested in doing on a day-to-day basis. Human Resources Management and Logistics are very broad careers but have so many things within those career fields that can be great options to choose from depending on what an individual enjoys doing. Here are some career options to begin researching and considering:

Logistics: Supply Chain, Consultant, Logistics Analyst, and Logistics Engineer
Human Resource Management: Employee Relations, Recruitment, Employment Branding, Compensation, Benefits, Business Partner, HR Analyst, and Training Development. 

I hope this information is helpful and best of luck as you research your career goals!

Great question! First off congratulations on your upcoming graduation with you MBA! That is very awesome! Now; for your question; it would depend on if you have previous experience in that field.
1) No previous relevant experience. You will be aiming for entry level roles. This is often hard for MBA graduates to understand. Their thoughts being why did I go after my MBA if I am going after entry level experience? This experience is just as crucial as your MBA to catapult your career. Frankly, there are so many skills that only on the job experience can prepare you for. You will be able to move up fast, but you have to start somewhere. Job titles would be individual contributor roles: “Coordinator”, “Specialist”, “Analyst”, “Representative”, “Associate”.
2) Three-Five Years previous experience in the field. This on top of an MBA will make you qualified for Senior level roles or “Manager” level roles.
I wish you all the best in your upcoming graduation and job search!

Several companies have developmental programs for soon to be and recent MBA graduates that will allow you to rotate through a few different functions over a couple of years to gain breadth of experience while you are deciding on a career path.  If you are looking for Human Resources jobs there are several different jobs you can look at by seeking them out with those key works on job boards like Indeed, Monster & Career Builder.  You can also go to industry specific sites like the Society for Human Resources Management (www.shrm.org) or the American Society of Transportation and Logistics (www.astl.org).
