This month, I’m pleased to introduce you to Truckopolis, Canada’s newest and most advanced trucking job site in the market today. Launching on www.trucknews.com Feb. 26, it’s the latest addition in a long line of Web-based services designed just for you. If you’re looking for a career in trucking, this should be your first stop.
Looking to get into sales, accounting or office administration? Do you think you have what it takes to be a great dispatcher or are you a qualified technician looking for a change? Truckopolis will be your connection to these and many more industry-related positions.
For employers looking for qualified applicants, using a Web-based service such as Truckopolis will give you the opportunity to fill positions quickly and economically. No longer do you have to wait long lead times to receive resumes. Truckopolis will be working 24/7.
This feature shouldn’t be confused with our online driver recruitment centre. It’s hard to improve upon the best and that’s what we believe we already have. If you’re a driver or owner/operator looking for a change, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Truckopolis has been developed with input from both employers and employees and as you’ll see, we listened. Our I.T. department has taken this input and developed a system that’s quick and easy to use. Once you’re online, you’ll be able to check out what’s available with a few clicks of your mouse. About the name…let me explain. “Truck” is self-explanatory. It’s why we’re here and what this industry is all about. “Op” meaning company operation, also referred to as “ops”and finally “olis”, which I don’t have a clue what it means. I’m thinking it probably has a Greek origin since Kathy Penneropolis had a lot to do with it.
Countless hours of development went into launching this product. I’d like to thank the entire Truck News staff for getting the word out and creating some great looking ads. In addition, often the people behind the scenes who do most of the groundwork are given little credit. Although sometimes I don’t have a clue as to what language our tech people are using, they obviously understand each other. This was a team effort and I’d like to thank Kim, Irene, Bart and the gang for their part in making it happen.
