Everyday we hear or read about the lack of jobs for truck drivers, especially for the new CDL student just coming on board. Although things have gotten a little tighter, the truth of the matter is . . . there are truck driving jobs available, and many trucking companies are hiring. This fact comes from one of the best truck driving schools in the country – Eagle Training Services, Inc. out of Illinois. In fact, Eagle Training is doing so well at not only training new CDL students, but finding them jobs once their training is complete. In fact, today, September 1st, 2009, Eagle is celebrating their new move-in to their new location at R.L. Leek’s Building, 2210 Harrison Avenue, Rockford, Illinois. The new facility was needed due to the increase they are experiencing with their class sizes.
The main factor I see with recent CDL grads unable to land that driving job, is that they had some kind of negative mark on their MVR or something to this affect, and the school took them in anyway, knowing they would not be hireable. Eagle Training is showing a job placement rate within the mid to high 90 percentile rate. Other excellent CDL schools are reporting the same stats. The importance of choosing the right CDL training school goes without saying . . . the school you choose can make you or break you in your truck driving career.
Tanya Bons of Eagle Training provides valuable information about what CDL students can do to increase their chances for getting hired. She also gives an excellent insight into why so many believe that truck driving jobs are scarce and hard to find. In today’s market, Tanya explains that trucking companies are seeking the cream of the crop. She also discusses why we have been led to believe that trucking jobs are falling by the way side, and why unemployment offices are seeing such a high rate of out-of-work truck drivers. It is a great article that you should be sure to read:
The economy will eventually turn around for all aspects of industry. Furthermore, as Tanya explains, when that happens . . . trucking is going to come back stronger than before.
