    My local community college offers CDL training. How do I get a job after I graduate with no experience?
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.

    You can get a job before you graduate. Start the applications on the first day of cdl school.
    You'll receive job offers contingent on completing cdl school and having any required endorsements and passing a drug test.

    You asked this question 3 yrs. ago and you're still young enough to start a trucking career.

    "I'm thinking about learning to drive a truck OTR. Will companies hire new guys that are 58 years old?"

    Getting your CDL from a community college is probably one of the BEST ways to get a job. While you’re there, recruiters will come and pre-hire you (if you choose). If you’re smart, you’ll just wait until you graduate and apply to local or OTR companies.
     
    tscottme Thanks this.

    When I was looking for a CDL school, the community colleges in my area were both longer (a whole semester) and more expensive than many private schools.

    He's able to manipulate time and space to go where no man has gone before.
