Two truckers share their stories

Meet Nailah and Martin!

Two different people who truly love what they do, which is driving a truck.

Sometimes in life, you need to think outside of the box.

When a friend suggested that Nailah attend truck driving school she stood in front of her in high heels and a dress and thought NO way was this for her. Today she happily says, “I am in a place where I don’t have to want for anything. I am happy. I don’t have bill collectors calling me…

Well I know it is not for me but I am grateful for those who is in the business.

What are you going to say?

Tell me about yourself. This question makes us cringe a little bit, but every employer will ask you this in some form during an interview. Why? Well because they want to see what YOU bring to their company. You might be wondering (or tempted) to tell your life story and be more personal, but don’t! When an interviewer says, Tell me about yourself, what he or she really wants to know is how your experience applies to the job you're interviewing

I hate when recruiters do that! Because they already have all information they need about you
