I'm 20 yrs old and just graduated truck driving school a week ago and can't find a job. Help?

by Kyle Hermsen

I can't find any trucking company willing to take a recent grad with little to no experience in the industry. Now i dont expect companies to come running overnight, but every company i apply to has an age requirement or experience requirement.

Any suggestions on how i can combat this? Should i try finding a job driving a straight truck or what? Thanks for reading this!

Kyle is your trying to go over the road you must be 21.

Try some companies needing in state drivers and yes, I would try straight trucks, and drivers helper at a moving company if you still can't find something.

Also don't just respond to ads. Stop at companies with trucks and inquire about a trucking job. They may not have posted the needed yet.
