CO-OP/INTERNSHIP


Fall 2021

FULL TIME

 

WHY BRIDGE?:
What are you passionate about? What fuels you to wake up the next morning, ready to give it your all? For us, it’s not actually logistics. We often say we’re in the business of developing people and building relationships – we just happen to move freight in the process.

 

ABOUT THE ROLE:

Think of this co-op role as a ground floor opportunity to launch your career in logistics before graduation. We’re not about making copies and grabbing coffee – we want you to do real-world, resume-building work. You’ll be able to see the impact of your contributions on a daily basis.

 

The role involves working on our developing sales team – helping our sales department find transportation companies to physically move our shipments. You’ll be negotiating rates and following through to make sure all our loads are picking up and delivering on time.

 

You’ll learn the logistics industry, build relationships with carriers, get exposure to our sales process, and set yourself up for a transition into a logistics career. All while being surrounded by a supportive team who wants to help you succeed!

 

REQUIREMENTS:
High level of interest in sales and operations

 

Be passionate about our vision: To build genuine relationships and grow together

 

Ability to make calls through strong phone communication skills

 

Thrive in a fast-paced, team-oriented sales work environment

 

Ability to negotiate with diverse clients

 

CO-OP SUCCESS PROFILE:

 

Proactive:

  • Be the first to answer the phone every time it rings
  • Assess priority loads and make outbound dials on them

 

Initiative:

  • Don’t wait to be told what to do – always find something to work on

 

Work Ethic:

  • Work hours are 7:30-4:30 – be here on time and don’t leave early
  • Ask for help when you don’t understand something
  • Act mature – we have a relaxed culture, but don’t take advantage of that

 

Organization:

  • Be able to multi-task, remember what needs to get done, and jump back and forth effectively between several tasks

 

Ownership:

  • Realize how important the co-op role is – it is directly affecting Bridge’s bottom line and the paychecks of everyone on the team
  • Own your mistakes and learn from them – know that everyone makes mistakes and that it’s okay to admit them
