Semi Truck Driver JobTalk about job security! Truck driving jobs are always in demand, and even more so today. If you’re looking for a job, or you’re thinking about a career change, you may want to consider the trucking sector. The trucking industry employs more than 3.5 million Americans, and that number continues to grow. In fact, truck driver employment is expected to grow at a faster rate than many other occupations through 2030! There’s a huge need for fast, efficient delivery of just about everything.

There are dozens of reasons to consider a career as a trucker, but in this blog, we’re highlighting our top three.

1.) No college degree is required. From the time we’re children, we’re told about the benefits of a college degree. But with the high cost of attaining a degree, it’s definitely worth exploring good-paying occupations that don’t need one! Many people have found that there’s little reason to spend tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars or take on a lot of student loan debt to attain a college degree. As a professional trucker, you can make a great living (and receive benefits), without going into debt.

2.) Trucking jobs pay well. Many people don’t consider a career in trucking because they think the pay isn’t worth all of the time spent behind the wheel. That’s simply not true. Pay wages vary, but most trucking jobs pay well. We encourage you to take the time to explore what the different types of jobs in the trucking industry pay in terms of wages and benefits. You just might be surprised! And remember, the more experience you get behind the wheel, the greater your earning potential.

3.) There’s never a dull moment. Many jobs feature the same tasks day-in-and-day-out. Trucking is much different in that there’s often variety in what you’re transporting or where you’re going to transport it to. Many drivers get to see a wide variety of areas of the country and interact with professionals from a variety of industries and backgrounds. In short: Trucking is never boring.
