Career Outlook

Trucking is a stable career option even if you want to relocate. With the current shortage of truck drivers across the nation, those who do well in trucking enjoy unprecedented job security. Why? The ATA says this truck driver shortage could climb to 100,000 jobs in the five years. Some trucking companies have a 100 percent turnover rate. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that heavy-duty truck driving jobs may grow by 4% percent in the next ten years resulting in over 2 Million Truck Driving jobs in the US.

If you love to travel, truck driving is the perfect occupation for you. Many truckers say there’s no better way to see the country than behind the wheel of their big rig. If the idea of a desk job leaves you cold, sign up for an adventure to see the United States.

If you enjoy flexible schedules, meeting new people, new views every day, and being your own boss, then trucking is the job for you. As a long-haul trucker, you’ll see the road – as well as beautiful sunrises and sunsets – from inside modern trucks. While you do have to follow “hours of service” rules, you’re also in a position to set your own schedule. Most truck driving jobs have incredible freedom.

Truck drivers have a unique type of job and that commonality sets you apart. Many truckers describe their job as a “lifestyle.” No one truly understands what you experience every day on the job quite like another truck driver. Much like a military unit, truck drivers form a camaraderie with one another which is why military training is the perfect background for a truck driver if you are a veteran* looking for a new career.
