Whether you graduated college or not, having a secure, high paying job is always in your reach. If you look around, you can find many options that can offer you a great paycheck while keeping you satisfied and driving a truck is one of them.
In the trucking industry, both men and women flourish in the field. Trucking is not only adventurous and fun, but it also gives you a secure future because of the high demand for drivers. If you have a passion for traveling and love to drive, then this is the perfect position for you.
Truck driving requires a lot of training and licensing. If you’re interested in getting into this field, you’ll need to enter a truck driving school or attend a company sponsored CDL training program that can help you learn how to handle a truck, teach you about the rules of the road and about pre-trip inspection, and give you plenty of defensive driving skills.
You can earn a great living as a truck driver. A person with good driving experience can earn you more than $65,000 per year and an entry level drive can earn up to $40,000 per year. As the years go by and you gain experience, your pay will increase. Some truck drivers even earn up to $85,000 per year! On top of that, truck drivers also receive dental, medical, life insurance, vision and retirement benefits.
Depending on the deliveries, you may need to travel in the night and take routes that will help you reach your destination on time. People who love to travel will really enjoy this type of work, but if you want to be home every night you’ll still be able to find a job. You can opt to be a local driver, long distance, or a regional driver, all of which are perfect if you don’t want to work the regular 9 to 5.
If you’re the type of person who can adapt to any environment and can travel on a regular basis, this job is perfect for you.
