CDL Drivers With No Experience:
CDL drivers with no experience ask all the time what their chances of getting local employers to hire them are without experience?
Well let's break it down:
a. A CDL driver with experience coming off the road and looking for a local job have two things that local employers are not to fond of, sure he\she has the "experience" but they would not work for less money then what they are accustom to and they have habits (good or bad) that bring to the new job, these are not assets to local employers, on the contrary.
b. Now lets consider a "Rookie CDL Driver" applying for a local job. First he would accept less "pay" to start and second no "habits", this is a good thing for local employers because they can mold the new employee to adapt to the way the employer run their company without possible disruptions.
Remember "Experience" comes with time and by doing over and over the task on hand, if no employer would take a chance with a new 'Un-Experience" CDL driver and give he\she the opportunity to grow and excel he\she would never get the 'Experience" needed for the skill.
Words To The Wise:
We all need a chance in life to prove that we can do what we set our minds to. In this industry you are looking for that employer to give you that chance. Once you have built the confidence and experience for at least six months working for this employer you can use this on your resume as verifiable experience, ultimately enabling you to command your own destiny.
