There are a great number of good reasons for someone
to become a truck driver. First and foremost among those reasons would
be the great pay. Did you realize that most truckers, their first year
out on the road, earn an average of $35,000 a year? And, that after
just a few years out, those same truckers are making an average of
$45,000-$50,000 annually? And finally, veteran drivers who own their
own trucks make average salaries that are over $100,000 a year. What
other profession can you get into, where the pay is that good?
other great reason to get into trucking…….. is the chance to see some
of this great country of ours. How many states have you been to? Are
you one of those people who haven’t been to very many places? Well, get
into trucking and you will have the opportunity to explore America. See
why most people consider this to be not only the greatest country in
the world, but also the most beautiful one as well. What other country
has sights like The Grand Canyon, Yellowstone Park, the Great Smoky
Mountains, the Pacific Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, New England in the
fall, and so much more? Want to explore America? Become a trucker.
other great thing about being a trucker is the camaraderie that you
feel with your fellow truckers. It’s a special bond, much like the bond
that people who are in the military feel. You and your fellow truckers
know that you are doing a job that is vital, Vital for the country. For
without trucking, we would be in a heap of trouble. Do you have any
idea how many products that you use, that are delivered by truck? The
percentage of products delivered by truck is around 78%. So think about
something that you use (car; food; pharmaceuticals; etc.) and there’s a
really good chance that it got to you, by truck.
Trucking is not
an easy job. I won’t try to make it seem like it is. For one thing,
you’re away from home a lot. But even that, you do have some control
over. For example, if you’re the type who likes to be home quite a bit,
there are truck driving jobs where the drivers are home every weekend,
and in some cases, there are trucking jobs where the drivers are home
every night. It must be noted though, that some of those jobs don’t pay
as well as the long haul jobs do.
Is trucking for you? Only you
can decide that. If you think that it is for you, the first step is to
enter a truck driving school. There are great schools located in every
region of this country.
