What Trucking Companies Are Looking For on a Resume

What are trucking companies looking for in a resume? Absolutely nothing, as there is a shortage in trucking of over 135,000 truck drivers and by the end of 2007 industry analysts expect the shortage of truck drivers to be in excess of 160,000 truck drivers. If you are looking to drive a truck for a living and perhaps even see the country, then a driver job is waiting for you and your resume only needs to show that you have the drivers license and that you are trainable.

You see, trucking companies need people to drive so badly that they are taking people who barely speak English or even had just gotten out of prison and have felonies on their record. If you have a felony on your record about the only kind of truck you cannot drive is a Haz Mat truck or a trucking company, which has big military contracts to haul their freight around the country. You do not need much of a resume if you are looking for a job in the trucking industry as a truck driver.

The trucking companies will train you to get your commercial drivers license and offer you a fairly decent starting wage and they are competing with each other for truck drivers and so you need to shop around and look for the best deal for you. Let us just say it is a drivers market and this would be a good time to take advantage of a new career as a truck driver. Consider this in 2006.
