CDL Job Placement in Portland
If you've been struggling to find trucking jobs, you'll find that
going back to school to obtain your commercial driver's license can
improve your prospects considerably. However, many CDL training programs
can take years to complete, and there's no guarantee that a job will
be waiting for you once you're finished.
Elite Truck School is proud to offer a short, four-week CDL training program for aspiring
commercial drivers in the Portland-area.
After you complete the CDL program and earn your CDL, our trucking academy
gladly help you find a lucrative position in the transportation industry.
Great Jobs for Licensed Drivers
CDL training is your ticket to a wide range of good jobs. Here are a few
you might consider.
Local Delivery Driver: CDL holders as young as 18 can get a decent job delivering goods in Hillsboro,
Gresham, Tigard, and elsewhere in the Portland area. The local delivery
of food, furniture, and other products is important to the economy.
Long-Haul Driver: Every year, millions of trucks deliver products from the Port of Portland
to elsewhere in the country. If you earn a CDL, you can get paid to drive
Bus Driver: With the right endorsements, you can drive all sorts of passenger vehicles.
For example, you could get a job as a school bus driver or a city bus driver.
Transportation Industry Job Outlook
Today, transportation companies can't hire truck drivers fast enough.
More and more Baby Boomers are retiring, leaving a significant void that
younger drivers need to fill. According to one estimate, the U.S. will
need 330,000 new drivers by 2020. Also, the Bureau of Labor Statistics
estimates that there will be an 11% increase in truck driver employment
from 2012 to 2022. Many people are becoming truck drivers because there's
a plenty of room for upward mobility—a driver can start out as an
employee and work their way up to an owner/operator or administrator.
While there's no guarantee that you will get a job after you earn
your CDL, your prospects for employment are much higher than they might
be if you choose another field of study.
