10 years experience but haven't driven or worked in 3 years
by Mellody Lawson
(Phoenix , Arizona )
I am a former Line Haul Truck Driver with 10 years overall driving experience. Shortly after the pandemic hit I took 3 years off to care for sickly elderly parents because I am the only daughter they have who isn't married with a family.
After fulfilling my obligations to my family I wanted to go back to work. But because I have been doing gig work for the last 3 years and was fired from my last trucking job for a minor non dot related violation no trucking company will even look at me let alone hire me.
I am even willing to retrain, take a refresher, or start out at a starter salary. I just need work experience.
If someone can please throw me a life line it would be much appreciated.
