When we start job searching as truckers, first of all, we think about local, regional, and OTR trucking job opportunities. But while the trucking industry is constantly complaining about driver shortage, it still can be tricky to find a good job. So there are several not so obvious ways to get hired with high pay.

Farm truck driver career 

You can transport grain, corn, and soybeans, feed, ingredients, or even livestock. This can be both seasonal and regular work. But you can be sure that you will not be left without work. Agriculture is an industry that depends on transportation so much. But remember that there are various restrictions on the transport of livestock due to the need to ensure that the animals are treated humanely.

Mining industry trucking

You will be required to safely transport coal and other materials from mines to the surface. You will have to operate a giant dump truck and it can be risky. But at the same time, this work is always on the list of highest paying trucking jobs.

Careers in the construction industry

The construction industry offers many opportunities for CDL A owner operators and company truck drivers. You can transport building materials and supplies, heavy equipment, or even drive dump, or other specialist trucks.

Truck driving school instructor

Because somebody has to do it. If you are fed up being over-the-road or you are a retired truck driver looking to continue working, a career as a truck driver training instructor might be a good one for you. All you need is a minimum of 3 years of CDL Class A driver experience and a lot of patience.

Alternative trucking careers to consider

If you don’t want to drive a truck, there are other professions in which your trucker experience will be useful. There are dispatchers, terminal managers, tractor-trailer technicians, or even recruiters career opportunities.

As the truck driver recruiting agency's CEO, I deeply understand the unique challenges and demands truck drivers face.

Drawing from my extensive work experience, I bring knowledge in truck driver recruitment, logistics, and transportation management. I possess a comprehensive understanding of industry regulations, safety standards, and best practices, ensuring that the agency adheres to the highest standards of professionalism and compliance.

Now, looking back and remembering my path from the very beginning, it seems to me that this story is a lifetime. During all these years of development and growth of our agency, I took part in no less interesting projects in which my experience, knowledge and vision were needed. And I was also able to gain new skills, contacts and experience by participating in the development of these projects from various fields, such as cargo transportation, trucking companies, e-commerce, parcel delivery and much more! But the best is yet to come!
