If your job search has stalled, becoming a truck driver might get you moving again. It may not have the perks of working for a high-tech firm in Silicon Valley or battling in the trenches of Wall Street, but it offers more than you might have imagined.
While the official unemployment rate has fallen, many experts attribute the decline to a shrinking workforce. People are simply giving up and choosing not to work. You’re not a quitter, but no one seems to be hiring, or you’re not qualified, or you’re over-qualified, or you’re one of 5,000 who applied for 10 openings. If you have experienced any or all of these scenarios, you need to consider becoming a truck driver.
According to the American Trucking Associations, there are currently 25,000 unfilled truck-driving jobs nationwide. That’s a lot of openings in an industry essential to keeping America running.
And those jobs won’t be going away. The U.S. government predicts by 2020 an additional 330,000 drivers will be needed. You could be one of those drivers the industry needs to stay moving.
The younger you are, the better. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average age of a commercial truck driver is 55. There will be a lot of retirements in the next few years, making the demand for experienced drivers even greater.
