The Current Trucking Career Outlook

Even when the economy is not booming, skilled drivers are in high demand.

  • Continuous high demand
    Even when the economy is not booming, trucking is a career that flourishes. Current needs are for 500,000 drivers nationwide.
  • Ongoing job security
    Trucks deliver food, oil and gas, clothing, building materials, mail, cars - just about everything we need and use so job security is “built in.”
  • Excellent pay and benefits
    Commercial truck drivers usually earn over $30,000 their first year, and experienced drivers can make $90,000 a year and more! Plus most firms offer health insurance benefits for drivers and their families, paid vacations and holidays, retirement plans, and other benefits.
  • Reimbursement for education/training
    Many trucking companies reimburse driving school tuition expenses for new hires.
  • Choice and independence
    Choose from local, regional and over-the-road driving jobs. Whether you’re behind the wheel of an 18-wheeler or a straight truck, it’s a job where you are proud and in charge.
