When it comes to making a career choice, two of the top things you’re probably looking for are job security and opportunities within the industry. By having both of these things, you’re able to provide for a family and always have options to put your skills to use. That’s the great thing about a career in trucking – it gives millions of hard-working men and women the opportunity to thrive, both personally and professionally.
But it’s not a one size fits all model. As Trucker G explains in the video – trucking has allowed him to provide for his family for many, many years. And he has always had options in the industry. That’s the beauty of trucking. What works for one family or driver might be different from the next, but in both instances, there will be options and security.
This is especially true during trying times such as a recession or pandemic for example. While the trucking industry isn’t bulletproof – more times than not it’s professional drivers who are the heroes of the road.
One thing is for sure, that trucking will ALWAYS be essential. There are different factors when it comes to trucking and making money.
- Feelings Towards It - The way you feel about trucking can definitely affect your career. If you get used to the lifestyle and love it, you are more likely to run more miles and take more jobs.
- Type Of Position - The type of position you hold can depend on how much money you make in truck driving, as well as if you would still be working/putting in miles during pandemics.
- Company - Each company has different policies when it comes to their drivers. Different companies may pay more per mile and have more routes available than others. It is most important to go with a company that fits your wants and needs.
