Trucking jobs are very attractive, even for drivers with little experience. They have been and probably always will be the highest paid entry-level jobs that a person can get. Most truckers already make an average of $35,000 in their first year out on the road. After a few years out, those same truckers are making an average of $45,000-$50,000 annually and it is nothing exceptional that veterans make over $100,000 when they are owner of their own truck. What other profession can you get into, where the pay is comparable? All you need to start with is a drivers license and many trucking companies are offering a free or even paid driver training.
The other great reason to get into trucking is the chance to explore our great country. There is no other job around where you are able to see all the beauties of our America like the Yellowstone Park, The Grand Canyon, the Great Smoky Mountains, the Pacific Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, and so much more I could mention here. If you want to explore America, become a trucker! But don’t think that trucking is an easy job. You are away from home a lot but even that, you do have some control over. If you prefer to be at home quite a bit, you will be able to find trucking jobs where you are able to be at home every night - even if those jobs usually don’t pay as well as the long haul jobs do.
