The Workforce Boards of Metropolitan Chicago cite the TWL industry as the fifth largest employment sector in the region, and the sector continues to grow. The 2006-2016 State of Illinois Employment Projections (Long-Term) show warehousing and storage occupations are expected to increase 4.17% every year. The industry is worth $8 billion to the Chicago region, employs over 120,000 people, and maintains a payroll in excess of $3.2 billion.

Trained, career-oriented employees who can grow with the industry are the most marketable. MCC helps prepare you for entry-level warehousing opportunities—including order fillers, forklift operators, and shipping and receiving clerks—as well as for technical roles. You'll also benefit from the program if you're looking to move into a supervisory or management role.
