If you are a recent graduate from a driving school, a lot of times they have places or companies that will pick you up to drive for a company, However if you are a recent graduate it is going to be difficult to find a company to hire you since a few, if not all companies ask for at least 3 months of driving experience in a truck.!!! I recommend that you start looking for Mom and Pop companies to gain some experience. Then you will be able to start building you a resume.

If you are a newbie your going to most likely take a job with a giant carrier. One year OTR will give you enough experience to be considered for most jobs you want. Remember that you know very little so instead of risking accidents, freight damage, OOR miles ask other drivers. Not a single driver out here started as an experienced driver. The only way to be experienced is to be a rookie first. Good luck to you, I wish you all the best in your b ew career.

Personally companies want to know that you are reliable and drive safe. That you will show up. And do the job expected. So if that is something that you can attest to then put that down. Ex, hardworking, pay attention to detail. Safe driver. Take my job seriously.
