Finding a new trucking job usually isn’t hard for a good driver. Now a days you can easily find job postings on the internet, which you would otherwise have had to visit various employers to learn about in the past. Here are 4 ways that can help you find your ideal truck driving job...fast!
Update Your Resume
Before you apply for a new trucking job, you need to update your resume, cover letter and information. Make sure you add your latest work history and any new skills you may have learned. Updating this information can give hiring managers a complete idea of your most recent experience.
Make Sure Contact Information is Current and Working
So many hiring managers have told me how they try to contact applicants for driver interviews only to find their voicemail is full or email isn't working. Always update your contact information so you don't miss out on any companies that want to interview or offer you a driving opportunity.
Job posting boards such as Indeed.com and CareerBuilder.com are great places to look. Not only do they list all local truck driving jobs, but you can also find national truck driving jobs if you want to work as interstate drivers. Visiting as many job boards as possible will allow you to find a job and find the best position in the shortest time frame possible.
Many trucking companies post to social media today, to surpass job boards. Not only is it free, thousands, if not millions of people looking for trucking jobs can easily find them.
You can often find paid ads online, which lead to open positions. If you click on these ads, you will sometimes find available trucking jobs, and other open positions that are available with trucking companies that are looking for new employees and new drivers to work in the field.
