(Clayton , NC , USA)

I am currently immigrating to USA from Finland , and because i have not had my US license for over a year i have troubles getting anyone look at my job applications.

I drove tractor trailer combination in Finland for five (5) years. The weather and road conditions in Finland were very bad 6 months out of a year , so i do already know something about winter driving.

I am currently enrolled in Carolina Trucking Academy to obtain my class A CDL. If some company would be willing and kind enough to give me a chance , i wouldn´t disappoint.

I learn all the tasks fast, and i already know something about how the trucks work and behave. I think that there is always something to learn in every profession , and especially in trucking.

I do not think that i am a complete package, learned from my rookie mistakes .

Here is my resume if interested:
