Why Become A Truck Driver?
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?
One 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 havenít 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.
One other great thing about being a trucker is the camaraderie that you feel
with your fellow truckers. Itís 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 thereís a really good chance that it got to you, by truck.
Trucking is not an easy job. I wonít try to make it seem like it is. For one
thing, youíre away from home a lot. But even that, you do have some control
over. For example, if youíre 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 donít 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.
