The American Institute for Economic Research (AIER) recently published survey results that analyzed people who wanted to pursue a new field later in their careers. According to the findings, 82% of survey participants made a successful transition after the age of 45.

Changing jobs doesn’t have to be scary or risky, especially when you make the decision to join the trucking industry.

As reported in one online article, “The American Trucking Association (ATA) has initiated a billboard, print and TV campaign to convince older couples to drive together. The reason: The 1.3 million drivers of long-haul, heavy trucks are approximately 20,000 fewer than needed. Putting two drivers in one cab doubles the miles driven, substantially cutting delivery times.”
“The Complete Guide to a Career Change after 50” also points out that the average age of retirement is rising. “Many people over 50 may have 15, 20, or even 30 years of working life left in them, and some choose to spend the remainder of their working years in a new career.”
With that said, why not spend it with the one you love, out on the open road. Older couples can benefit tremendously by entering the trucking industry. They get the advantage of being together, while traveling to all the places they have always wanted to see. And while they get to see all the places they have always wanted to, they are getting paid to be there.
