    It’s all good to educate young people about the future career opportunities in the trucking industry but they should also be warned that unless you have a relative in the HR department of a trucking company you likely will not gain employment in the industry as I am now finding out. Giving the fact that I am a brand new driver looking for a job so far all i have heard is “there is no way we’re going to put you in a $100,000 truck with no experience, but thanks for stopping by”. And this came from 4 of the companies listed in the article
