What are your expectations? If you are considering a career in trucking, or even maybe have already started - what is it specifically that you are looking for from trucking? How much do you expect to earn? How often do you want to get home - and how often are you LIKELY to actually get home? Do you have big picture goals -or are you just taking it day by day and week by week? Have you made an effort to educate yourself about trucking? A real honest to goodness effort, like reading books, taking online or in person courses, done your own research, attended a webinar, visited a truck driving school in person - talked to any truck drivers face to face? To get an accurate picture you need information from different sources - NOT just what a recruiter tells you. That's part of it... but not the whole story and if you rely solely on recruiting information you are more likely than not in for a few hard lessons and unpleasant surprises. Do your own research. Get clear with yourself on what exactly it is you are trying to do. Then figure out how best to do it - write it all down. Have very specific written goals - then take action. If you do your chances of success go way up.
