    Cool Driving jobs for recent grads...

    Of course there's the Werners and Swifts out there that hire recent grads. When I got my CDL in '04, I didn't want to follow that route. So here's what I did and it was successful for me, you may want to consider something similar...

    I drove around locally and looked at some of the trucking companies, those that appeared to have decent equipment and such, and I got on the phone and started calling. Asked if they hired student drivers or those right out of driving school. Took a while but I landed a position with a local company, a smaller company. It worked out great.

    I guess the moral of the story is, you never know unless you ask. I even went and called many trucking companies in the phone book. Not such a big deal if you're in a smaller town.

    I know the economy is different these days, but thought I'd throw this out in case it might help someone looking for work.

    Good luck drivers!

    Good Post Driver !! Ya may have to get off your ### to find a decent job, right. And they often forget about other types of driving jobs. Greyhound drivers make a good wage, and sleep in hotels. Airport shuttle, tour bus, limo, etc etc
